Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A grasshopper walks into a bar. The bartender says, “Hey, we’ve got a drink named after you.” The grasshopper says, “Really? You’ve got a drink named Lenny?” [insert rim shot here]. But in all seriousness, the invention of the perfect cocktail is no mean feat. There’s a reason we’ll travel the extra distance for the bartender (sorry, mixologist) who knows how to muddle the mint leaves just right, or where they infuse the vodka in house with single-source cocoa or local cucumber. When a drink is made just right, it’s the sort of thing you can linger over and enjoy for as long as the company and conversation will allow. And the better the drink, the more likely the company and conversation will stay for another. Want to be able to work this magic yourself? Walk right in to Clementine at the Creative Alliance for a mixology workshop.
The cocktails at Woodberry Kitchen have their own following, thanks to mixologist Corey Polyoka’s empshasis on homemade ingredients and raw creativity. At this workshop, Corey shares the Woodberry approach to mixology—talking about the drinks, sharing the history, techniques, and latest trends of the craft while you make them at your station. The workshops are held on the second Wednesday of each month. So if you can’t make it today, mark your calendar for next month. You’ll still be a pro by New Year’s.
Corey Polyoka’s mixology workshop is held at Clementine at the Creative Alliance. Wednesday, November 14th from 7:30-9pm. One class costs (in advance) reg $40, $35 members or (walk-in) reg $45, $40 members. For more information, visit www.creativealliance.org.
