Leann Kruger Mixes Unique Drinks for Circus Circus Reno Whiskey Dinner
What goes better with whiskey than whiskey? Try some amazing food dishes from our talented chefs who worked with distillers to create a menu set to swoon any whiskey palette. Leann Kruger, highly acclaimed “mixologist” and bartender, will be sharing her skills at this unique event April 24th at 6pm in our Steakhouse at Circus.
Kruger has been in the beverage and hospitality industry for over 15 years. With that experience in the field, she will be representing the three whiskey distillers we used for our menu; Bulleit Whiskey, Dickel Whiskey and Wild Turkey American Honey. With a lesson on how these particular whiskeys are created, she will also be serving amazing mixed drinks to complement each course of the meal.
The menu will include five courses, complete with the mixed beverages. The first course dishes up whiskey barrel-smoked salmon and apple and horseradish sour cream on a hand-made oatcake paired with a Bulleit Rye American Whiskey. Second course serves cream of broccoli soup made with stilton cheese paired with a Dickel Rye Whiskey. Third course is a glazed duck breast with cherries marinated in Faro Wheat Whiskey paired with a Bulleit Bourbon. Fourth course plates up bourbon-braised beef cheeks with Yorkshire pudding and creamed corn paired with a Dickel Bourbon. The final course, the dessert, features a sticky date pudding with honey whiskey Chantille crème paired with a Wild Turkey American Honey.
