History is the Worst.

You think absurdly expensive cocktails crafted by apron-wearing, moustache-wielding bartenders are the worst? Try again. Kendra & Grace taste test a pioneer classic: Taos Lightning. Also known as rotgut, tanglefoot, shakeknee and busthead, this historic whiskey drink arrived in Denver in 1858 and made the whole town hilarious.

We also want to acknowledge up front that, at times, history truly was the worst.

In this video, we chose to highlight a few charming historical contrasts not to diminish the seriousness of the many terrible acts humans have wrought upon one another over time, but rather, to connect to a wider audience who can learn from history and thus endeavor to do better.
