*As Part of San Francisco Cocktail Week
Cocktails Through The Modern Lens - A Seminar w/ Jennifer Colliau & Erik Ellestad
Thursday September 23rd 3-5 PM @ Heaven's Dog in San Francisco $25.00 per person
DO NOT MISS THIS. This is a more expanded and hands on version of the sampler we did at Martin's West earlier this year. If you don't remember, that was maybe the best event we've done in the last year or two - and we didn't even have a real bar!! Now we're taking the class, expanding it to 2 hours, and doing it on their turf at the best bar in San Francisco - HEAVEN'S DOG! I am so excited to finally be doing an event there because it is not easy to book these much sought-after venues. Getting a private tutorial on cocktails is a fantastic experience. With the help of two consummate professionals, your domestic mixology can achieve loftier heights than you've ever imagined. Jennifer Colliau, a bartender at Heaven's Dog and the Slanted Door, is the creator of Small Hand Foods, a small company dedicated to reproducing forgotten sweeteners and mixing ingredients. She specializes in pre-Prohibition drinks and is a master behind the stick. Erik Ellestad is also a bartender at Heaven's Dog as well as at the Alembic and has garnered national fame for his Savoy Cocktail book project - making every drink in alphabetical order. He makes a hell of a drink and is encyclopedia of classic cocktail knowledge. They are going to get behind the bar and show you how, with just a few simple tricks, you can bring your home cocktail mixing to a new level. You will get $25 worth of booze easily, so consider the education and the experience free of charge!
