Classic cocktails are the perfect way to wind down with close friends after a long day. Simple, elegant, and diverse enough to please every palate, the classic cocktail is the closest thing to heaven on Earth. How do you take something perfect and make it even more special? Consider bitters, the flavorful, volatile tinctures that can add personality to any drink. Join master bartender Jon Gaige of Berlyn (Fort Greene's upcoming cocktail hotspot) for an introduction to bitters in classic cocktails, their history, and even how to make your own.
Students will have the opportunity to craft three cocktails under Jon's guidance, with the opportunity to sample each one. They'll also get the opportunity to sample different bitters and learn just what makes them distinctive. Recipes for each drink are included.
