Proving it's good for more than just making totally badass Trapper Keepers is mead: an ancient fermented honey wine downed by everyone from Vikings to Celts, which's now available in Miami for first time at Kill Your Idol. It's all thanks to the efforts of an intrepid Norse-mad barkeep who uncovered an outfit called B. Nektar producing it in Michigan, even though most modern-day Vikings are found in nearby Minnesota, on sex boats. Some mead facts from him you probably didn't know:
For now, KYI's got two kinds of B. Nektar on hand (Orange Blossom and Wildberry Pyment), which're available by the glass/bottle as well as in their Viking Menu that's filled with concoctions like the Valkyrie Spritzer and Odin's Sangria made with wildberry mead, vodka, triple sec, muddled strawberries/ watermelon, and OJ. They also plan to pick up a few more varieties, including one that's aged in a bourbon barrel -- which, while not quite as badass as a red Ferrari tearing through your folder, will still be a Keeper.
