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!
