Sep. 21st, 6:30-8:30PM - ICONIC NYC COCKTAILS
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...
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.
