After you’re done hitting the slopes at the Wisconsin wonderland this winter (see our ski story on page 22), relax in the comfort of your own private home. Grand Geneva Resort & Spa—located in southeastern Lake Geneva—recently unveiled a lineup of 29 all-season villas for business and leisure visitors, increasing the number of available guest rooms on-site to more than 600. These upscale lodging options reflect a multimillion dollar investment and offer conference guests privacy and creature comforts during their stay while not straying far from the main meeting rooms and dining venues. A convenient trolley also provides door-to-door transportation and can be scheduled with a new, userfriendly app.

Available are studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas, most with full kitchens, washer and dryer units and modern furnishings. Many also include a fireplace for warming up during the winter, and all have access to an outdoor fire pit for the more temperate times of year. Other amenities guests can enjoy include in-villa spa treatments and grocery delivery, as well as full use of the 1,300-acre property.

Scott Castillo-Milburn, owner of mobile bartending service Classic Cocktails by Scott, developed this recipe last summer for a client who was looking for a bourbon-based drink that would feel seasonal and light for an evening party. The night ended with everyone who’d tried it asking for the recipe, and Castillo-Milburn has since replicated it at 10 events. He’s kept the drink a secret—until now. You can hire his company to create this drink for an event, create a new signature cocktail, or even obtain general liability or liquor liability insurance for your venue.
