Botanical Mixology 101
Historical bartenders and modern mixologists have long used a great variety of herbal and botanical ingredients to add flavor, body, and visual flair to drinks. Go beyond the garnish to explore the world of oleo-saccharums, infusions, simple syrups, and tinctures using plants and ingredients accessible to the urban gardener/drinker. You'll learn history, get growing advice, and master technique, and sample a variety of botanical ingredients to gain greater understanding of the palette of available flavors. Lastly, you'll top off the evening by making your own tincture to take home and perk up your cocktails!
