About this Event

RUMBULLION COCKTAIL CLASS WITH TONGA TIM: SPECIAL VETERANS DAY WHISKEY EDITION!

While Prohibition put a nail in the coffin of whiskey and gin for many years, it gave rum a big boost in America. American, Irish and Scotch whiskey were practically wiped out, while safely produced, crossed over our borders bountifully. Don the Beachcomber embraced this wave of rum and single-handedly created tiki drink culture.

When legal whiskey returned, on the other hand, rum returned to the back seat. But Don and his contemporaries boosted whiskey's presence in tiki to spread the appeal. This tradition remains with us today.

In this special Veteran's Day installment of Rumbullion, join Tonga Tim on a journey through whiskey's history and flavors. We'll look at the origins of styles including American, Scotch, Irish and Canadian whiskies, and of course their eventual journey into tiki. Along the way, you’ll enjoy three cocktails based on the spirits we’ll discuss. And there will be a special focus on craft bourbon and rye from Hotel Tango, a combat veteran-owned and operated distillery.

Join us in person in our spacious back room or online for the Whiskey Tiki Cocktail Class, including the live demonstration of Tonga Tim's mixology tips + shaking and stirring original tiki cocktails.

IN PERSON CLASS ticket includes:

- Tiki cocktails: one when you arrive, and one tasting of each of the cocktails that Tim demonstrates

- Overview of the history of Scotch, Bourbon, Rye, and Irish and Canadian whiskies

- Print out of the recipes for your home bar

- Individual appetizer sampler basket

The cocktails will be available for purchase after the class, as well as any selection from our full cocktail menu. Seating is limited, and you will have your own table unless you specifically request to be seated with another attendee who purchased a separate ticket.

ONLINE CLASS ticket includes access to a private link via YouTube to watch the class live, as well as on demand at a later date. We will email you the cocktail recipes in advance if you want to create your own to drink in your home bar. All online ticket holders will also be entered for the chance to win a prize package sent to you after the class.

Remember, based on state guidelines everyone must have a seat while enjoying your cocktails, and wear a mask when you’re not seated. Please help us keep the bars open. When we ask you to do something, it's what we have to do.
