  • Mezcal Social with Rezpiral

    Rezpiral is a spirits label, project and fair trade practice that brings beautiful selections of the highest quality traditional artisanal single-batch (non-certified) Mezcals into a handful of places in the USA. At the core of the project is the embrace of an ethos that aims to respect and support the multi-generational knowledge, independence, flavors, lands and ways of each mezcalero family with whom they work.


    Join Alex White of Rezpiral and Jared Sadoian of The Hawthorne for a spirited tasting of mezcals from Rezpiral and hear from Alex about his work, the work of these incredible mezcaleros captured in these bottles, and their nursery program.to help protect and promote the sustainability of the work these independent artisans have been doing for years. Following the tasting, converse and reminisce with Alex and others who just arrived back from the rainy season in Oaxaca where they transplanted 15,000 agaves of all different varieties. Taste and enjoy the process, depth, and difference in independent small scale mezcals.


    Ticket includes a flight of three mezcals and a tasting copita to take with you. Additional pours available after the guided tasting, priced by the ounce.

  • Hands On: Sherry Cocktails!

    Oh, Sherry! It made Frankie Valli "lose his mind" and Steve Perry's love for Sherry "holds on, holds on," however we've found our true love of this amazing fortified wine from Spain at our bar, where we enjoy it on its own, and mixed into a multitude of cocktails.


    Challenging for some at first, Sherry is a beautifully complex and wonderously flavorful cocktail ingredient, with the benefit of it having less than half of the usual alcoholic strength of its distilled cousins!

    Join the staff of The Hawthorne as we explore the wide variety of Sherry wines, learn the history and culture behind its production, and mix it into a bevy of beautiful and delicious cocktails.
