Learn to Mix Cocktails Class for Charity!

Want to expand your cocktail making repertoire and interested in what creating craft cocktails really means?

Then join us on for a summer afternoon at the lovely outdoor garden at Five Crowns Restaurant where mixologist Benjamin Webb will teach us how. We will be sipping and learning how to make delicious craft cocktails made from freshly squeezed citrus, bitters, herbs and various spirits.

You will have a chance to imbibe in a traditional punch libation, precursor to the modern cocktail. You will be introduced
to a brief history of spirits, enjoy a primer on the tools of the trade and instruction on the best way to taste. The two hour class will also include a tasting and sampling of various gins and instruction on how to make some classic cocktails with recipe cards you can take home to recreate the cocktails. Cocktail demos, sampling and recipes will include gin cocktails: The Martinez and The Aviation and whiskey cocktails: Whiskey Sour and Manhattan.

Kyle Castanon, the distiller from Greenbar Collective Distillery in Los Angeles, will be joining us and one of the gins we will taste is Greenbar's TRU Organic Gin.
