Meet me in the secret back bar of Mission Bar ( Mission St at 23rd) for the first in a series of my Botanical Speakeasy events. In true speakeasy style, head into Mission Bar and make your way to the back, down the hallway leading to the women’s bathroom there are two doors. The door to your left will open up into the secret bar inside a bar where we will have our lesson! In this workshop we will talk about what it takes to make a great bitters recipe before we stuff mason jars with botanicals, herbs and spices to make our own take-home bitters. Once our mason jars are sealed and brewing, we will have cocktails with my ready-made version of bitters while we design and make terrariums. Everyone will take home their bitters to let steep, the supplies needed to get it from jar to tincture bottle and their own mini-garden in a bowl. Class is limited to 10 people. $75 per student.
Botanical Speakeasy-Back in the secret bar of Mission Bar (2695 Mission Street at 23rd-head towards the bathroom on the right and go through the door to the left at the end of the hall)
In true speakeasy style, this class is held in the secret bar inside Mission Bar. This workshop kicks off by preparing Japanese flavored bitters with all kinds of sweet and spicy, citrusy flavors to infuse into a signature cocktail of the night. Once our bitters are steeping and cocktails are in hand, we will dive into making kokedama-a string garden based off bonsai techniques. Each student will leave with their own bitters and all supplies needed to get the concoction from mason jar to tincture jar and their own kokedama. $75 per student, class is limited to 10 people.
