A couple weeks ago we had the privilege to attend an evening with author Elizabeth Gilbert to celebrate the success of her latest novel “The Signature Of All Things”. We mixed up SAGE and RHUBARB herbal infused cocktails and ended the night with a Laurel ice cream ROOT beer float. All in all it was an incredible evening to remember.

Who doesn’t love the classic Gin and Tonic? It’s simple, easy to make, and tastes phenomenal. But sometimes you might be in the mood for something a little different even though it’s hard to stray from those old favorites. Luckily, there’s a Gin and Tonic craze going on as bartenders everywhere have been jazzing up this cocktail, resulting in some rather unusual takes on this classic drink. We rounded up ten unconventional but awesome gin and tonics you need to try ASAP.
Some consider Labor Day to be the end of the summer, but here in L.A. it feels like the season is still going strong. Like, really, really strong. Blazing in fact. This weekend I found myself sweltering in my apartment with no sign of reprieve (or central air), so I decided to do what any logical person would do: make myself a cool, refreshing cocktail that sings of the summer and reminds me why we wait so anxiously for this season in the first place.
Those fleeting summer days will be gone before we know it – but that doesn’t call for an end of the festivities. Squeeze every last drop of summer with a celebration in honor of National Rum Day today Saturday, August 16th and spike your cocktails with some aged white rum nearly 150 years in the making.
It’s National Rum Day! Summer may winding down, but there’s still time to celebrate one of the world’s oldest and most prolific spirits with these great rum-based cocktails!!
Learn how to craft the perfect cocktail as we mix (and taste!) our way through the book Shake: A New Prospective on Cocktails. In this 3 hour workshop, you will learn the tricks of the trade as we craft three signature cocktails with spirits provided by Art In The Age and Taqueria Feliz.
After the workshop, we’re sending you home with your own Mason Shaker Cocktail Kit ($50 value) which includes the signature Mason Shaker, muddler, and jigger, so you can perfect your entertaining skills for your next gathering.
The workshop will be held at Meadowsweet Mercantile on Saturday, August 23 from 6p – 9p.
