Robert Simonson, noted cocktail historian and author of the recent book “The Martini Cocktail” (2019, Ten Speed Press), delves into the history of the world’s most famous and debated cocktail, which has fascinated generation after generation while undergoing dramatic shifts in personality, technique and reputation.
The seminar will be divided into two parts, the first section addressing the history of the Martini, going through its origins, and examining the many changes the drink has undergone through the last 140 years.
The second section, offering a more active and visual component to the seminar, will examine the various techniques for making a Martini. Four different Martinis will be prepared live.
[Ticket includes seminar and a Good Luck martini. Simonson will also have signed books available for sale.]
