  • Tasting Deep Dive: Bitters for Health & Pleasure

    "I thought I was going to die the first time I tasted it. I actually might have gagged. It was terrible." - Antoinette Cattani, former manager at Fernet-Branca

Why are some so much more drinkable than others? Join Rob Ficks, Head Bartender at The Hawthorne, as he guides a delicious and far-reaching tasting of the world of bitters and their application in fine cocktails.

  • The Bartender's Cookbook:

    Recipes and Hacks for the Home Bar

    Cocktail bars and chef-driven restaurants around the world are able to capture flavors - a snapshot in time, in many cases - easily and in volume, why shouldn't you be able to at home?

     

    Join Senior Bartender Amanda Saladino and Bar Manager Jared Sadoian as we explore the world of juices, syrups, infusions, and other means of preservation to not only extract flavors effectively from our most treasured ingredients, but be able to minimize waste and use every part of the fruit, vegetable, or spice to maximize our dollar. Techniques and recipes will be geared for the home cocktail enthusiast, where we'll use regular, everyday tools to build some amazing drinks.

     

    This is a hands-on class, so prepare to get your hands dirty as we build some great ingredients and put them together into tasty beverages.

  • Tequila is a Region, Agave is a Culture

    There is no spirit in the world as deeply connected to a place and a people than agave distillates - Tequila, Mezcal, and their countryside brethren. It is also a tradition endangered by industrial agricultural practices and mass-market distribution. Join Jared Sadoian, Bar Manager of The Hawthorne, as he takes you through his travels through the tequila and mezcal-producing regions and share in a representative tasting of the category.
