  • August 3rd -  Asian Persuasion: This is where flavors of the Far East meet in harmony with flavors from the Pacific Rim & Ring of Fire.  The exotic flavors of lychee & lemongrass, dragon fruit & yuzu, umeboshi & Chinese Five Spice will set the tone for this palatable journey around the new force in cocktail fusion trends.  Your tastes buds will be ready to book a flight to Hong Kong after sampling the Fury of the Dragon & the Five Finger Death Punch!
  • August 10 - Cuban Confidential: During the American Prohibition, when the sale of booze was banned in the States, the American A-List simply threw money at the problem and made a relatively short haul flight to escape the party poopers and ensure they got their fix of boozy debauchery.  Money wasn’t really an issue for this lot, so they rounded up the best bartenders from Americas finest hot spots and jetted off to what was to become the original party island…Cuba!  Today we will walk in their shoes celebrating timeless Cuban classics like the Daiquiri, Mojito, & the Hemingway.
  • August 17 - Here’s looking at you Kid ~ a salute to Hollywood’s boozy past: Shaken, not stirred anyone?  Hollywood has influenced cocktail trends since the invention of the silent film.  The Pink Lady was inspired after a 1911 Broadway Musical, the Vesper the ultimate James Bond classic, and Humphrey Bogart, in the classic film Casablanca, showcased the sexy French 75. Enjoy with us as we give tribute to the classics & celebrate the iconic relationship between film & their influence on modern cocktail trends.
  • August 24 - Bitter & Twisted
