Did you know every great drink comes from a plant? This class will deconstruct the old fashioned, vodka gimlet and gin martini down to the roots of each ingredient and plants associated with it.
You will learn how to make simple syrups and bitters and learn about plants you can grow to create delicious craft cocktails at home.
We will provide you with recipe cards and taste samples of the infused simple syrups and bitters demonstrated in class along with information about growing your own “cocktail garden.”
Samples will then be used to create three crafted cocktails we make using 45 th Parallel’s Whisky, Vodka and Gin which each person will get to try and order one of their preference.
