It’s Gin-uary Cocktail Class at Cornman Farms

Gin is herbaceous and floral, warming and refreshing, and can be served in both sweet and savory libations. Join us on Friday, January 16, 7pm, as we focus on the wintry and robust side of this centuries-old spirit as we mix three seasonally appropriate gin cocktails. We’ll start with the hearty Negroni, a classic born in Italy in 1920; then we’ll embrace a new herbal twist on an old favorite with the Rosemary Gimlet; and we’ll end the class with a sweet and satisfying Spiced Pear Fizz. You’ll mix your own cocktails, enjoy hearty appetizers prepared by the Cornman Farms chefs, and then leave with recipes and the know-how to make these cocktails at home.
