Agh, the Summer Porch. It’s almost time for summer evenings spent on the stoop and visitors stopping by, which calls for our next frame workshop: Summer Cocktail Porch Pounders by Sandy Levine of The Oakland and Chartreuse.

Learn the tips and tricks of Sandy’s favorite 3 thirst-quenching cocktails he has on hand anytime a guest sidles up to his porch:

The Chartreuse Swizzle
The Sherry Cobbler
and the most balanced
Gin & Tonic your summer will ever meet.

Jot down your notes, ask questions about these recipes, learn how to crush perfect ice with Cocktail Kingdom’s Schmallet Ice Mallet and Lewis Bag, and at the end of this Porch Pounder Workshop, you’ll be ready to stock your most complete summer bar cart.
From mid-June to late August it’s always happy in our books.

$65 per person + tax and service fee
Each workshop is limited to 20 guests

Welcome punch, bagels and smear and two one-on-one hours with Sandy Levine of The Oakland and Chartreuse fully devoted to the art of making summer cocktails.

“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!”

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.”
