Hey slackers! Still not done with your holiday shopping? I feel you. I don’t know how it happened, but here we are, days away from Jolly St. Nick busting down the chimney and I’m not exactly ready for visitors. But, Christmas is happening whether we’re prepared or not. That dude does NOT take a rain check. Instead of more STUFF this year, how about dropping some KNOWLEDGE on your nearest and dearest? How about 4 weeks of interactive classes all about cocktails, for instance?! The Cocktail Culture Class with Bit by a Fox starts January 15th at the esteemed neighborhood wine & spirits shop, Brooklyn Wine Exchange:
We are thrilled to host Prairie Rose from noted cocktail blog Bit By a Fox for a four-part interactive mixology series beginning Thursday, January 15! Each week, Prairie will show you how to make classic cocktails and explain the history and chemistry behind each drink. A cocktail tool and shaker kit is included with the purchase of a seat! Class begins at 7pm and lasts approx. 2 hours.
That’s right, not only will we cover the stirred and shaken, as well as the fizzes, flips and bubbles that make up the cocktail family, but everyone will get their very own shaker and cocktail tool kit to take home with them. The last class will be a cocktail throw-down where the students will have a chance to come up with their own original recipe. The first class, Stirred Cocktails, however, will be a very special one: We’re kicking this four-part class off right – with a Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Manhattan. If you’re a bourbon fan, you’re already familiar with PVW’s cult-like following and the fandom that surrounds this rare-to-find Kentucky whiskey. Brooklyn Wine Exchange has acquired a small allocation of the highly sought-after Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Whiskeys this year and they are ready to spread the love.
Seats are limited, so be sure to register online, call 718-855-9463 or stop by the shop to pick up a ticket for yourself or your favorite (aspiring) cocktail nerds.
