Spirit Forward Cocktails: Old Fashioned and Martini
San Francisco, CA
This class is inspired by two cocktails that have withstood the test of time, The Old Fashioned and The Martini. Stirred or “spirit forward” cocktails are usually composed of a base spirit, a modifier (liqueur, vermouth, syrup), and bitters. These drinks are properly prepared by stirring the ingredients with ice (rather than shaking), and are served straight up or on the rocks. If fruit appears at all, it's either as a small amount of syrup, or in the form of a twist of lemon or orange peel, or as a cherry on a pick as garnish. We will guide you how to make a proper stirred cocktail, share the story behind each cocktail, and give you inspiration to create your own variations at home!
