Do you want to mix a drink like a top bartender? Do you desire classic and specialty summer cocktails with specially selected food pairings? Then join "The Maestro" Salvatore Calbrese and his protégé, our own Joseph Brooke, the resident bartender of Mixology 101 at Planet Dailies in the Original Farmer's Market on Fairfax.
On June 25 and 26, Calbrese and Brooke will spill their tips and techniques, demonstrating the measure, shake, pour and garnish for classic cocktails and summer-inspired specialty drinks.
These two-hour classes are open to the public but are first-come, first-served--expect a sell-out.
The class on Monday June 25 at 5:00 p.m. is entitled "Journey Through the Classics" and will focus on the Martini, Old-Fashioned, and other familiar libations.
At 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday June 26 they will present "Sizzling Summer Entertaining" and pair the following drinks and noshes:
- Choke Delight & Spinach & Artichoke Dip
- Spicy Fifty & Buffalo Wings
- Salty Martini & Salmon Filet
- Pea Pod & Pineapple and Orange Chicken
- Jamaican Sangria & New York Strip
- Other cocktails: Zucchini Reposado, At The Market
Each class lasts approximately two hours and costs $30 per person. Ages 21 and over only, as there will be tastings and a chance to get behind the bar.
