A Garden Tasting of Aperitifs and Digestifs with Jeremy Fisher

Friday, September 18
Passed Hors d’Oeuvres
$40 plus tax and tip
The current craze for craft cocktails; the opening of swank Manhattan  ”Bitter Bars”; the world wide shortage of Angostura: all are manifestations of of an exploding interest in aperitifs and digestifs. Traditional old-world products of herbs, spices, fruits, concocted by secret recipe, in the past many were originally used for their health benefits. Today, these fortified wines and liqueurs are all about flavor.
Jeremy will lead an informal  tasting  leading us through a wide range of these delicious bottles and also demonstrate their use in mixology.
Come and join us!
