Aug. 2nd, 6:30-8:30PM - ICONIC NYC COCKTAILS - SPECIAL EVENT
Class notes: What makes a great cocktail? Mainly spirits, water, sugar and bitters – but that comes with a lot of history. What makes a great New York cocktail? That’s an entirely different story...
In partnership with @cocktails, journey with us as we recreate some of the most iconic cocktails that have been both inspired and defined by Manhattan. From creations by Rainbow Room’s Dale Degroff to Pouring Ribbon’s Joaquin Simó – there are plenty of rounds to go around. (Shhh don’t tell…some of the cocktail creators themselves will be guest bartending at these events.)
We’ll discuss cocktail pioneers like Jerry, “Professor” Thomas and Frederic “Ice King” Tudor and major events such as prohibition, and revolutionary influencers who continue to shape the industry, as we know it today. In between cocktails we will turn on some light music and have social time to enjoy the cocktails.
Cocktail Menu: 4 Full Cocktails. Think: Gin Gin Mules from the Pegu Club, versions of the Manhattan, the Cosmo (the right way), and drinks made famous by the best NYC cocktail bars of past and present. Additionally, we’ll learn their stories and hear about the creators behind these iconic concoctions!
Food Menu: A selection of bites only found in New York City (like Prince Street pizza) + veggies, dips, and more.
