Chuck Cerankosky and Justin Dussett appear on "Connections with Evan Dawson" on Wednesday, June 1, 2022.

The Rochester Cocktail Revival is back. Our guests preview this year's event, which runs June 6 through June 12. We also take a look at the history of spirits and cocktails - everything from the origin of rum, to the effects of World War II on American whiskey, to why it doesn’t matter whether you spell "whiskey” with or without the "e."
