  • Cocktail Creativity via Syrups and Citrus

    $55.00 per person

    Prepaid

    Jun 8, 2024 only
    Classic cocktails often taste great on their own, but can also provide pro bartenders and home enthusiasts alike a framework for additional creativity. How can we take recipes that we know already work, and modify them to incorporate different flavors and ideas? Are we really only limited to lemon and lime to make drinks tart, or are there other ways to brighten citrusy cocktails? Simple syrup is sweet, but can we use something that gives more. This class will explore acid-adjusting citrus (and other) juices to make new flavors and cocktails never before considered, as well as basic syrup techniques to add new dimension to old favorites and modern classics. Learn to make your ingredients work for you, and not the other way around!

    Basic food. Absent service. Uninspired ambiance. I made a Resy for my friend who is visiting and I. It was embarrassing due to the lack of service and boring food selection. We couldn’t help but question it during our dinner.

    Decent spot. Not much of a view, but still a nice outdoor space. Host/manager seemed a little standoffish, but waitstaff was friendly and welcoming. Food was very well done.

    YUMMY salad and entrees. Great wine pairing with the beef. Good service. Just tell them not to clear the table when you're eating--it disrupts the conversation.
