Bartender and author Scott Beattie will talk about seasonal cocktails and teach the group how to make 2 summer-time drinks from his book, the Blackberry Lick and the Westside Bellini. Instruction will include side recipes, garnish how-to, foams, and rim sugars and salts. Drinks will feature St. George/Hangar One spirits and fresh, seasonal fruit from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
Each guest will have hands-on time with Scott and will get to explore the possibilities and complexities of making cocktails with heirloom tomatoes (think of it like taking the Bloody Mary to the next level). Lou Bustamante will be on hand to talk about the distilling process and products made by St. George/Hangar One. CUESA Market Chef Sarah Henkin will give a short demo on pickled garnishes for cocktails. Guests will enjoy the drinks they have learned to make. All profits after expenses for the class will generously be donated to CUESA.
