Moscow mule lovers rejoice! Ferndale-based Valentine Distilling Co. has partnered with 65 Applebee’s locations across Michigan, including our location in the Millender Center, to feature two craft cocktails.
The cocktails include a classic Moscow mule—featuring Valentine Vodka, and a Motown Mule—featuring Valentine’s White Blossom Vodka. Both are served in Valentine-branded copper mugs.
Last year, TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR) and its 60+ Michigan Applebee’s locations expanded its craft beer menu by partnering with Old Nation Brewing Co.
TSFR’s partnership with Valentine Distilling Co. is a continuation of the company’s efforts to support Michigan businesses.
In a recent release by Valentine Distilling Co., TSFR Executive Chairman Mark Schostak highlighted the reasoning behind the partnership.
“We understand the dining experience often begins with a cocktail. Having the opportunity to partner with a local, craft brand that’s already won international acclaim was an easy decision to make. This allows us to offer something unique and different from other national dining establishments,” said Schostak.
Applebee’s can be found on Level 1 of the Millender Center at 333 E. Jefferson Avenue in the Courtyard Marriott.
You can access the restaurant from the GMRENCEN by crossing the Millender Skywalk.
With warm weather around the corner, make sure to stop by the GMRENCEN to visit the new Applebee’s/IHOP combo and enjoy one of Valentine’s crafted Moscow mules.
