About this Event
Make a cocktail, or just come to watch and enjoy the CUPS company!
**The first 20 postdocs to sign up will receive a FREE cocktail toolkit - simply provide your name and mailing address to get the tools sent to your apartment/home!
Join Rebecca Pinnell as she teaches a virtual cocktail class aimed to help you create cocktails in your home with depth and balance. Added below is a “shopping” list detailing ingredients and tools that you can gather to have ready at the start of class. We will be making the special syrups and cocktails step by step, at the same time together. This virtual class has been designed to be engaging, entertaining, and full of tips on how to continue to make delicious cocktails in your home.
To celebrate two classic cocktails, Rebecca will guide us through making a tiki inspired cocktail called the Saturn and a play on the Sidecar. For the tiki cocktail we will be making an almond syrup called orgeat. This requires regular milk and almond extract, or almond milk. For the seasonal sidecar, we will be using plums or figs. You can gather fresh or preserves for this syrup.
