The fine folks over at Skill Exchange, who are all about teaching workshops to make you better at being a functional person, are doing a rad event that will appeal to your inner sophisticated drunkard (you as a less functional person). It’s a workshop that teaches how to make better cocktails and explains what the fuck bitters are used for. Here’s the info:
In the first half of this workshop, expert bartender Jill Fitzgerald will lead us through a brief history of cocktails, and help you deconstruct a cocktail menu, exploring both classic and contemporary cocktail favorites. You’ll enjoy a cocktail as we discover the basic differences between types of liquors, fads and cocktail trends, and what the future holds for cocktails in the city in the next few years.
In the second half of this workshop, bitters connoisseur Genevieve Brazelton will explore and illuminate the role of bitters. Bitters are the spice rack of cocktail making, bringing flavors together and adding depth. Through discussion and tasting we will explore the history of bitters, how they’re made, their role in cocktails, and the difference between mass market and hand crafted, small batch.
This workshop is open to 21 and over only.
