Book release party and seminar:
The cocktail renaissance is well into its second decade, and shows no signs of slowing down. Join Paul Clarke—the executive editor of Imbibe magazine, who founded the pioneering cocktail blog The Cocktail Chronicles in 2005—for a look at his brand-new book, The Cocktail Chronicles: Navigating the Cocktail Renaissance with Jigger, Shaker & Glass (Spring House Press), which offers a snapshot and an exploration of a culinary revolution in progress.
This session will trace the early origins of a bibulous reawakening; delve into the early 21st century days of discovery, a time when bartenders, historians and cocktail enthusiasts began to fully embrace the promise of the craft cocktail; and peer into the future at the many paths the cocktail renaissance could follow. And since cocktail history is a hands-on endeavor, we’ll be serving cocktails that reflect and embody this ongoing drinks revolution.
All participants will receive a signed copy of The Cocktail Chronicles as part of the ticket price. The books are being sent directly to Rob Roy from the printer (we’ll even have them before Amazon!), so event participants will be the very first to get a copy of Clarke’s book, drawn from his experiences and insights developed over a decade of drinks journalism.
This ticket also gains early entrance to the Happy Hour party that starts at 4pm.
