Drink of the month 
This is a favorite at the distillery tours! Those of you who know Mick realize that he likes to try spirits in cream soda from Sprecher! Well, Roaring Dans Rum, Bitters, and Cream Soda has become a staple here at Great Lakes Distillery and has most recently been featured at this year's Wisconsin State Fair! Mooncussing was the act of interfering with lanterns that guided ships through narrow waterways in order to run them aground and steal the cargo... we've named this cocktail after one of Dan's dastardly deeds!
2 oz. of Roaring Dans Rum over ice
