*This is a live, online class hosted virtually via Zoom.*
Inspired by her popular book, Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine, culinary historian Sarah Lohman uses eight different ingredients as a path to explore the history of American mixology, from the 18th century to the present day.
This talk will explore the histories of juniper, citrus, nutmeg, ice, anise, grenadine, cola, and flavored vodka; with brief digressions into tea, bitters, eggs, hay, the “no flavor” push of the vodka era and Red Bull.
A few recipes will be circulated ahead of class, in case you'd like to mix up some drinks to enjoy during the talk.
In addition, take this class and get a free gift from Cinch Market, which delivers all sorts of goods from your favorite Brooklyn neighborhood shops. All enrolled students will received a code for free sample-sized bottles of gin and bourbon from Cinch Market, so you can mix up some cocktails at home. We'll send the code when we send the Zoom link for class.
