The Pig and Whiskey Festival is the messy, delicious celebration of BBQ and booze, brought together with the best in local music, that takes place July 19, 20, and 21. Jack Daniels is the main whiskey sponsor, and there will be plenty of the Jack flowing this weekend. But other beverage brands will be there too, offering opportunities for festival-goers to try new things as well.
Sailor Jerry Rum will be offering specialty craft cocktails such as their Backyard Lemonade and Heavy Punch.
Heavy Punch is a special drink with 1.5 parts Sailor Jerry spiced rum, 1 part fresh pineapple juice, .5 part port, .5 part sugar syrup, .5 lime juice, and 4 dashes of aromatic bitters.
There are non-alcoholic drinks available through the festival as well, and people are encouraged to pace themselves and drink responsibly. It’s a hot weekend, so watch out for dehydration. And never ever drink and drive.
The even also offers BBQ and other food from multiple restaurant vendors.
