"Fancy Cocktails" Workshop & Tasting

Kinfolk Lounge & Library

Been to Austin's newest craft cocktail speakeasy yet - Kinfolk, located downtown beneath Moonshine? No matter your answer, hopefully you're as excited as I am about this offering, for the venue even without a special event is absolutely outstanding enough!

Kinfolk is offering the ACAS exclusive access to their inaugural, hands on cocktail workshop and tasting. This 120 minute experience includes:

– Three cocktails
– Practical exercise with a bartender
– Artisanal Cheese & Charcuterie
– Trivia with a Special Prize

Act fast as there are only ten seats available! Tickets are $100 (gratuity not included) and are located here on Resy:


Don't forget to RSVP within MeetUp if you're lucky enough to secure a spot. Here's the remaining description of the event from the Resy order page:

Please join us for this deep dive into the vast genealogy of Cocktails and Spirits at Kinfolk's first cocktail workshop & tasting. In this intimate tasting exploration, we'll be talking "Fancy Cocktail" favorites from Kinfolk's Family Tree of Cocktails: "Martinez", "Dry Martini", and "Harry's Matador". We'll be looking through the lenses of relevant base spirits, vermouths, and bitters, diving into the history, production, styles, and of course, implementation!

Ticket does not include gratuity! Bartenders and Spirit Librarians work for tips during workshop! Guests may also purchase additional tastings in the Spirit Library, as well as to-go flasks.
