Classic Cocktail Party and Demonstration Class

Saturday, November 9 & Friday November 29 – 4:30 to 6:30PM

Join us for our Classic Cocktail Party and Demonstration Class as Matt Farkas, our very own restaurant manager, mixologist and “Vermont Bartender of the Year”, makes you a welcome vintage cocktail and demonstrates the art of making 5 traditional cocktails.    Read more about Matt Farkas.

The party will begin at 4:30PM. During the first ½ hour Matt will make your welcome cocktail of choice. Choose from a Manhattan, Martini, Margarita, Daiquiri or Whiskey Sour. Stationary hors d’oeuvres will be available throughout the session.

During the remainder of the session Matt will demonstrate how to make 5 classic cocktails for everyone to taste. The classics include: Negroni, Manhattan, Old Fashioned Sazerac, Margarita and Side Car. In Part 1 of the class Matt will focus on technique to include such skills as shaking, stirring, rolling, straining, muddling, and garnishing. In Part 2 of the session the focus will be on MIS-EN-PLACE. Here we’ll review shaker tins, mixing glasses, strainers, muddlers, jiggers, peelers and much more.

At the end of the class Matt will hand out a pamphlet full of cocktail recipes and techniques so you can practice what you have learned at home. Please mention if you would like to join us for dinner following the cocktail party & class when you make your reservation.

The price for this session is $45 per person plus tax.
