Mike's "Medicine"

A signature cocktail for Beyond Blue 

Maker's Mark has a special place in the Slive family's history, and the Mike Slive Foundation is excited to again partner with Maker's Mark for our Beyond Blue benefit.

On Thursday night when you tune in to watch Beyond Blue, pour yourself some "medicine," think of Mike and raise your glass to honor his legacy.
