CUESA is partnering up with Scott Beattie, author of Artisanal Cocktails and the bartender at Healdsburg’s Spoonbar, for a series of six cocktail classes. All classes include a short “Cocktails 101” demo that will reveal how to properly shake and stir (and the reasons why you would do either), how to precisely measure, which ice to choose, glassware selection, and several other helpful tips that will insure better home bartending. The classes will be held in the CUESA Kitchen under the North Arcade of the Ferry Building from 2pm-4pm.
The first class is The Amazing Local Spirits of St. George, with Lance Winters of St. George Spirits of Alameda on Saturday March 5th. Lance will be on hand to discuss all things spirit related, and Scott will guide the class through making Hemingway Daiquiris, an awesome whiskey/apple/ginger concoction with Thai coconut foam called John Chapman, and perfect margaritas. There will be many other St. George spirits on hand to taste and experiment with. So hit the market on Saturday, and then have a fun happy hour! $50, tickets here.
