The well-documented “Cocktail Renaissance” is in full swing in Edmonton these days, with newer and cooler cocktail bars opening every other week. It can be an intimidating proposition for those uninitiated in the cult of cocktail to confidently order from the bearded and bespectacled bartender behind the counter. A little bit of education can go a long way in building confidence and discovering ones own taste.

Join us on Saturday, November 19 – $50 for an evening of enlightenment, as Manuel Barreira, a local cocktail expert who brings in a lot of our spirits, leads us through the history and contemporary usage of those essential cocktail cornerstones, Vermouth and Amaro.

While these Vermouths and Amaro’s are perfect to drink cold as an aperitif or after a meal as a digestif, they are more and more being used as an ingredient in refined cocktails, adding a special touch in new versions of great classics such as the renowned Negroni or the Americano.

Come taste these benchmark spirits, learn how they are used to enhance and build the most classic cocktails, and expand your knowledge of these special, bitter spirits. Only 30 spots available for this sit-down event.
