Hey Gedi, what inspired you to create this amazing cocktail?
Fall in Milwaukee is a time full of energy, nostalgia, and cozying up with a cocktail with friends. With the vibrance of summer still lingering in the air and impending cold, snow and hibernation quickly approaching, fall is the perfect time in the city to sip on a Nomadic Comfort. This cocktail is characterized by the boldness of the Jägermeister, complexity and woodiness in the form of the Rooibos Tea concentrate. All playing with the crisp notes of pomegranate molasses, lemon, and honey.
What does hospitality mean to you?
I really let the creativity flow with this drink. I leaned into my background, the season and came up with a cocktail that I'd like to drink in Fall in Milwaukee. - Milwaukee is a great city that feels like a close friend. Reliable and always down to do something fun. - Hospitality is being able to show up everyday and impact a persons life and try to improve it. Even for just a short time. It's tiny moments of human connection.
