Wandering Spirits: Keep Your Gin Up!
Thu, May 17 at 7pm
Join us for the May edition of our Wandering Spirits cocktail series as we get into the full swing of summer by talking all things gin. As one of the few primary boozes in the world, gin may also be the one with the most variance in flavor profile due to its somewhat non-specific means of production. Gins can be piney, floral, medicinal, herbaceous, sweet, dry —- or any combination of these and dozens of other characteristics. For this class, Head Bartender Logan Slaght (in his final Wandering Spirits teaching role) and Lakely Manager Jorja Vradenburg will be leading a sampling of a number of various gins, focusing heavily on many of the newer gins from craft distilleries of the Upper Midwest, talking about their individual profiles. They will also be mixing and sampling a couple of gin cocktails, as well as discussing many of its seemingly infinite uses in mixed drinks. It’s the perfect time of year to make friends with this delicious and versatile spirit. Class begins at 7:00pm and lasts approximately 1.5 hours.
