Mon 12/12: Booze Traveler (Travel Channel)
Jack Maxwell may have the best job in television. This week the experienced explorer kicks off the next season of his Travel Channel series where he traverses the globe discovering the connection between countries and the liquor they consume. During each voyage he not only samples the offerings but also connects with locals about the alcohol-making process, their favorite regional activities, and even drinks in a few touristy sights as well. During the premiere episode Maxwell journeys to Mexico to try the traditional drink raicilla, an agave-based liquor; pulque, a moonshine-like creation; and a famous mescal.
