Cocktail Class: Ladies Sling the Booze (Detroit)
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
1428 Gratiot Ave , Detroit, MI, 48207
Bartending was traditionally a man’s world, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been women behind the bar and in the distilleries. In this class you’ll meet some of them through their cocktails, from golden age giants like Ada Coleman (head bartender at the Savoy in London) to wartime Bessie the Bartenders to modern trendsetters like Audrey Saunders and Ivy Mix.
The class includes a combination of history and stories, technique instruction, and hands-on making of cocktails. Plus sampling, of course! Total consumption is equivalent to about 2 cocktails per person over the 90 minute class. Antietam is an award-winning restaurant in Detroit’s Eastern Market. Their delicious full menu will be available before, after and during the class, so consider coming for dinner as well.
