A Kentucky Derby Cocktail Workshop
Jaz’min Weaver
Cocktail Kingdom



With Kentucky Derby around the corner, we figured you’d want to ready your home bar just in time for a Derby Day soiree…And no one loves a Julep as much as frame’s cocktail guru Jaz’min Weaver.

Learn how to shake, swizzle (bois lélé)  and perfectly crush ice with Cocktail Kingdom’s Schmallet Ice Mallet and Lewis Bag, mastering  Juleps ranging from spicy (think Jalapeno for a lil twist ) to lemon-y, made with a housemade tea blend from fave tea house, Socra Tea Detroit.

Seersucker Suits and Fancy Hats encouraged, but not judged.
We’ll be focusing on what to drink during The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports.

Tuesday, April 14th
$65 per person + tax and service fee
Class is limited to 20 guests

A 2-hour workshop building (and drinking) 3 Kentucky Derby cocktails with snacks to keep the  buzz in check.

“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!”

What are people saying?

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“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.”
