Molecular Cocktails Class

6 May

Having enjoyed ourselves so much last night at Sanctuary T we were pleased when our teacher, Ben Pare, told us he could run a Molecular Cocktails class… so 24 hours later we’re back and ready to learn.

 

The evening began with a delicious Chai latte and crostino with homemade burrata.

Then we moved onto the serious business of cocktail making. The theme of the evening was beginning with a basic cocktail and then playing with the formula and techniques to alter it.

The drink we began with was a variation of an Il Sorpasso and contained:

  • 2oz Aperol
  • 1oz Bourbon
  • 1oz Honey syrup
  • Prosecco
  • Rosemary sprig

Over the course of the evening we lenghtened the drink, turned it into a dessert by setting it with agar agar and then turned it back into a drink again with the addition of a pressurized egg-white and alcohol foam and bitters.

Tea Cocktails

5 May

We’re still in New York and I thought I’d look into any cocktail events and found out about Mixology: Learn to make tea infused cocktails at Sanctuary T so we headed there this evening.

Over the course of the evening Ben Pare taught us 4 different cocktails (a mix of gin, whiskey and tequila based) using different teas and tea powders and at the end we made our own concoction inspired by what we’d learnt.
