Alcohol, Date Idea
The cocktail was first defined in print in 1806, and Boston has been at the forefront of the mixed drink movement ever since. You'll learn the histories of a dozen significant recipes originating in or otherwise tied to the city, and there will be hands-on demonstrations of the Ward Eight and the Periodista, two drinks which are respectively emblematic of the Hub's old and new cocktail cultures. We'll also discuss the broader cultural context, and the contributions of Boston and Bostonians to the drinking arts, from the hospital magnate who invented the house cocktail list to the “Ice King” who brought chilled drinks to the world. Come prepared to hear popular legends addressed – some supported, some dispensed with – and to get definitive answers about the cocktails, books, and barware that can really call Boston home. Instructor: Brian Hoefling
