Wednesday, December 2nd, from 6:30pm-8:30pm Dave and Nils will be giving a holiday cocktail course at the French Culinary Institute. Whether you spin a dreidel, light a kinara, or love Jesus, our Swedish Glögg, hot buttered rum, and cocktails flamed with a Red Hot Poker will complement every politically correct holiday party. You’ll see techniques like rotary evaporation, carbonation, and vacuum infusion, and learn tricks to maximize cocktail taste and texture.That's right, Red Hot Poker they use to heat and flame drinks. I read about it last year but never got a chance to get over there and check it out. And the other tricks sound awesome as well. I'm already signed up, perhaps I'll see you there.
Plus, it’s a great excuse to get hammered before 8pm. Buy tickets here. Check out some of our cool cocktails here, here and here.
