The Perfect Summer Drink
Taught by Sarah Lohman
Dubbed a “historic gastronomist,” Sarah Lohman recreates historic recipes as a way to make a personal connection with the past. She chronicles her explorations in culinary history on her blog, Four Pounds Flour, and her work has been featured in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. She appears on the Cooking Channel's Food: Fact or Fiction? and is 1/2 of the Masters of Social Gastronomy with co-founder Jonathan Soma.
Currently, she works with museums and galleries around the city to create public programs focused on food, including institutions such as The American Museum of Natural History, The Museum of Science, Boston, and The Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Her first book, Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine, was published with Simon & Schuster in 2016.
Nothing is as refreshing at the end of a hot New York City day as an ice-cold cocktail. In this class, you'll learn the formula for the best, on-the-fly summer cocktails.
With this interchangeable recipe, you'll learn how to build flavor by incorporating summer ingredients like fresh herbs and fruits. We'll learn how to make infused alcohols and simple syrups, then top off our drinks with citrus cocktail bitters. Finally, we'll sample the perfect summer cocktail--infinitely variable and customizable with homemade, summer-fresh ingredients.
