Cocktail 101: How To Mix Drinks with A Bon Vivant's Companion
Few cocktail books have inspired with as much longevity and allure as How To Mix Drinks; A Bon Vivant’s Companion, by Jerry Thomas (1830-1885) an American bartender who pioneered popularizing cocktails across the United States. Considered “the father of American mixology, ” this first-ever cocktail book published in 1862, is in reprint from Cocktail Kingdom and our cocktail guru Tim Avery presents a two-hour workshop covering the nuances of ingredients made popular 160 years ago. Master the traditional preparation, as well as modern takes on the Japanese Cocktail, the Whiskey Smash, and the Brandy Crusta. Spending the bulk of his years in San Fransisco and Arizona, Tim fell in love with the history of cocktails early on in his career …creating libations and tinctures at some of the country’s finest spots, including Michelin-starred Quince in San Fransisco. Lucky for us he brings his love full circle with a series of workshops at frame, starting with a creative evening based on the early days of cocktails.
