According to the organizers:
Our Masters of Social Gastronomy lecture series takes on a curious food topic and breaks down the history, science, and stories behind it. Up this month: cocktails.
The cocktail is credited as one of America’s greatest inventions. But where did it come from, and how did it evolve into the endless combinations we find today? Sarah will examine the dawn of the cocktail and trace the origins of some of our country’s most beloved imbibements.
Soma will tackle our modern-day obsession with the cocktail. Rules will be broken and assumptions shattered, as we cover water vs whiskey, shaken vs stirred, and the One True Way to craft a martini.
