Botanical Infusions: The Art and Science Behind Modern Mixology
Thursday, January 16, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM (EST)
No holiday is quite the same without creative drinks to wow your guests. Join us on Thursday, January 16th at 6:30pm at Bazaar Spices in Union Market for a conversation about modern mixology with Eliza Mairesse of Life 2 Order. Her recent project, JARRING BOTANICALS, focuses on making creative alcohol infusions to then transform into your favorite cocktails. The talk will include the basic science behind MAKING YOUR OWN INFUSIONS, those crowd-pleasing novelties that could once be found on the shelves of only the trendiest bars, and a LIVE DEMONSTRATION to let you turn that science into reality. You will learn how - with a little experimentation and patience - you can use a vast array of spices, dried herbs and flowers, fruit and even vegetables to make delicious concoctions in your own kitchen. And what's even more exciting, you will get to bring home your own botanical kit in a jar. Just pour in the spirit and let the magic happen. Cost is $20 per person, registration is required.
