Please Attend Sloshed School, an evening of drinking and a lecture about drinking

Your bill of fare.

I will again be mixing cocktails and talking booze history at the Rendezvous on Tuesday, January 31st from 7:30 onward. Please join, for you MIGHT LEARN SOMETHING.

Before the Cocktail, there was the Toddy

If you did not attend the previous session, let me fill you in: Sloshed School is an evening of cocktails and cocktail history hosted by me, Matthew Latkiewicz. If you attend, you will receive a short lecture on a period of cocktail-dom as well as the opportunity to consume three special and classic cocktail recipes.

OK BUT SO this session will focus on two basic recipes in vogue before the invention of the cocktail - the Toddy and the Sling. The basics of this drink are spirit, sugar, water. I ask you: WHAT COULD BE BETTER?

Be smart! Remind yourself to attend by RSVPing to this event on Facebook.

Sloshed School, an evening of drinks and discussion

I will be mixing cocktails and talking booze history at the Rendezvous next Tuesday, November 22 from 7:30 onward. Please join, for you MIGHT LEARN SOMETHING.

All your classic cocktails belong to us

The focus will be vermouth cocktails - of which the Martini and the Manhattan are two examples. Vermouth cocktails came of age in the 1880s and 90s. Cocktail drinkers and bartenders were looking for a way to soften the base spirit - your gins and whiskeys - without covering up the essential character like a punch or citrus based cocktail would.

OK BUT SO I will be talking about vermouth and mixing two early examples of the style: the Martinez (a sibling to the Martini) and the Saratoga (related to the Manhattan). These are wonderful drinks which YOU WILL ENJOY.

Be smart! Remind yourself to attend by adding this event to your calendar.
