Shots! Benedictine Shots returns!

Mike and Kenneth kick off “Monks of March,” where they’ll dive into spirits, liqueurs, wines and beers made by Monks all this month. This week they feature Benedictine, a delicious elixir that’s more “marketing myth” than actual monk alchemy. Regardless, the hosts discuss cocktails to make with Benedictine, what a day in the life is like for a group of Benedictine monks in Kansas, and discuss the many ingredients that go into the liqueur. Kenneth even takes a detour discussing Buckfast Tonic Wine, a caffeinated fortified wine made by monks at the Buckfast Abbey in England. Recipes included!
