Class notes: What makes a great cocktail? Mainly spirits, water, sugar and bitters – but that comes with a lot of history. What makes a great New York cocktail? That’s an entirely different story. Journey with us as we recreate some of the most iconic cocktails – that have been inspired by Manhattan and that have had Manhattan define them. From creations by Rainbow Room’s Dale Degroff to Pouring Ribbon’s Joaquin Simó – there are plenty of rounds to go around. (Shhh don’t tell…Some of the cocktail creators themselves will be guest bartending at these events.)
We’ll discuss cocktail pioneers like Jerry, “Professor” Thomas and Frederic “Ice King” Tudor and major events such as prohibition, and revolutionary influencers who continue to shape the industry, as we know it today. In between cocktails we will turn on some light music and have social time to enjoy the cocktails.
Cocktail Menu: (4 full cocktails) Think… Gin Gin Mule's from the Pegu Club, Versions of Manhattans, The Cosmo (the right way), and cocktails made famous by the best NYC cocktail bars past and present. Additionally we’ll learn about the stories and the creators behind them!
We will also enjoy small plate buffet catering from our friends at Prince St. Pizza as well as a complementary selection of veggie trays and cheese boards.
