Botany at the Bar
Lavender and Lily
the tent @ frame
The fusion of botany and booze unlocks a cocktail conversation so unique and inspiring that even we had to bring in an expert to help us grow our knowledge. As a lifelong creative and the founder of Lavender and Lily, Amanda Beyer has spent her tenure celebrating bespoke floral design, herbs + medicinal plants. Her aesthetic is self-described as “somewhere between punk rock and countrypolitan, but probably more like tragically romantic, garden-y and maybe bohemian”.
In this two-hour Summer School class, Amanda will share her incredible working knowledge of botany, herbs + medicinal plants; diving into the unique and fascinating role these greens play in our kitchen and more importantly, our bar. We’ll get our hands a bit dirty, break down the common struggles in at-home gardening, and hopefully leave class with quite the green thumb.
From here, frame’s marvelous mixtress Jaz’min Weaver will welcome us into her world of gorgeous craft cocktails and build on our newfound love for botany. Through the shake, stir and muddle, Jaz will be taking us on a deep dive into the profound role herbs play in our bars.
Together, this mash-up of botany and the bar will surely make for one eco-inspired, boozy educational night!
Please bring your own gardening gloves if you have them.
We will have everything else ready for you.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
