One of the coolest bars in town is kicking off a great event, called “Raise the Bar with The Hawthorne- Foundations and Formulas for Better Drink Making”. This is a set of unique classes to help you master cocktail-ology with some of the best drink mixers in the business.
Check out the info below for all the deets direct from the source, and be sure to call ahead for your spot in the class!!
Day 1: The Basic Formulas
Many of the original classic cocktails use simple ratios – a Sour is a 2:1:1, a Manhattan 2:1 and a Negroni is equal parts. Mixing alongside Jackson Cannon, The Hawthorne’s Co-Owner and Bar Director, guests will get a hands-on experience in making basic cocktails such as a Gimlet, a Bee’s Knees and a Vieux Carre.
Day 2: Variations on a Theme
Maybe guests already have the basics down and it’s time to take their drink making to the next level. In this class, attendees will learn to assess their home bars and easily alter the three basic formulas for a variety of delicious and time-honored variations. Guests will leave understanding how to evaluate a home bar and design a cocktail menu from the ingredients around them.
Day 3: Drinks for a Crowd
Now it’s time to learn how to make a drink for a crowd. Here The Hawthorne’s experts will go over the difficulties in scaling up, best practices for batching a large cocktail and a few great tips for a killer punch. Come ready to get your hands wet creating Chatham Artillery Punch and a batched Daiquiri.
