This Monday, March 26, the Chesapeake region is front and center on the Travel Channel. The hit show Booze Traveler makes a stop at Historic London Town and Gardens in Edgewater, Maryland.
The show follows host Jack Maxwell’s quest to try “the world’s most interesting drinks and the people that drink them.”
Filming back in August, Booze Traveler visited Historic London Town for its connections to tavern life in the colonial Chesapeake region. The William Brown House, located at London Town, was built in 1760 as an upscale tavern and boarding house.
The museum shares that Maxwell dressed up in colonial clothing for the episode, and learned the proper ways to bow, and to fire a black powder musket. (Hopefully that lesson took place before the drink-sampling began!) About a dozen London Town staff and volunteers participated in the day-long filming.
Maxwell tasted various colonial cocktails with London Town’s executive director, Rod Cofield, including Hot Cider Punch, Flip, Planters’ Punch, and Spiced Cider Punch. You can see the cocktail recipes and try them for yourself by clicking here.
The Booze Traveler episode is scheduled to air on the Travel Channel Monday, March 26 at 9 a.m.
