Fruit and herb infused cocktails are all the rage these days — I was so smitten with a lemon verbena cocktail a while back that I bought a lemon verbena plant of my own. More than just a perfect refreshment on a sultry summer day, these drinks are also ideal for savoring with your cheese course. And for those of you in DC, here’s a chance to learn how to make them at home, on Aug. 28.
Ever wonder how your bartender makes a ginger mojito taste so gingery? Or adds cinnamon spice flavor to your favorite drink? Wonder what a shrub is? (Yes, it’s a drink.) Infused simple syrups add dimension to cocktails and are easy to create.
Learn the ins & outs of infused simple syrups with a tasting of cocktails created by food bloggers Dana Onyewu & Anthony Rivera. Learn principles of flavor pairing and experiment with syrup infusions. Enjoy food from One Lounge and leave with your own simple syrup to take home!
$35/per person includes: 3 cocktails, heavy appetizers, hands-on instruction, custom simple syrup you create and take home
