At the height of America’s Golden Age of Cocktails, Prohibition shuttered the doors of drinking establishments. That golden age had fueled the rise of a cadre of professional bartenders. What happens when your career abruptly ends? Thousands of bartenders went abroad to continue their profession. They continued to stir and shake, but more importantly, to preserve and expand American cocktail culture creating new classics that, today, are part of America’s cocktail canon. Let’s learn the stories and taste these drinks!
We had so much fun at last year’s Camp Cocktail that we had to make it a tradition. Continuing the theme of great cocktail cities, we decided this year’s theme would be the history and stories of three great cocktail cities during Prohibition. July’s camp is about the story-worthy cocktails invented in Paris.
Join us for this hands-on interactive class on Sunday, July 9th, at 5 pm (our summer classes start later). Camp activity is stirring and shaking classic cocktails and learning the stories behind the drinks. Develop your palate and practice the mixologist’s techniques. Enjoy appetizers, and take home your Camp Cocktail booklet to continue your mixology adventures at home. Hogwash Whiskey Den’s master mixologist, Simon, guides you through the use of tools and techniques. Raising the Bar’s cocktail historian, Renée, tells the stories behind the drinks.
Class set-up includes bartending stations with all the necessary tools, fresh-made and prepped ingredients, and vintage glassware.
Tickets are $75 per person. Your ticket includes the following:
- Three crafted drinks
- Mixology and history lessons
- A Camp Cocktail recipe booklet
MUST BE 21 and over. The class is limited to 30 guests.
If you have questions, please email Renée at [email protected].
