    Re: Makers Mark Ambassadors?

    Got a Surprise in the mail today from Makers Mark. They sent out what they call a "Party Kit". It consists of a small stainless shaker with Makers Mark printed on it in red, a set of red Makers Mark cocktail napkins and a small holiday card with a recipe for a Bourbon High ball.

    The recipe is interesting:

    1 1/2 oz. Makers Mark
    1/4 oz. white Dekuypers creme de cacao
    1/4 oz. DeKuyper Hazelnut Liqueur
    Top with Cream
    Shake and serve over ice
    Garnish with chocolate shavings

    Not a bad little thank you holiday treat for their Ambassadors

    Todd - I received the same thing from Makers Mark today. I'm have neither Dekuypers creme de cacao or their hazelnut liqueur, so I'll just drink some Makers by itself tonight.

    It's synergy. DeKuyper is owned by Maker's new parent, Beam Global Spirits and Wine.

    I only became an Ambassador after the Beam buyout. I went poking around the site yesterday, my Barrel " StraightBourbon.com BobbyC" hasn't been so named yet. It was nice to see that the little shaker they sent us is a 19.95 item at the giftshop,Thanks!
