We're shakin' and stirrin' at our VodkaFest-featuring Gin. Taste Vodkas from Sweden, Poland, Holland, Ireland, Finland, Switzerland, the USA & France. Vodkas made from corn, rye, wheat (one made from only 5 varieties of wheat)...some from fruit orchards like wild berries, ruby red grapefruit, banana, clementine, mango...some from your garden (cilantro, dill, rosemary & fennel) and more.
Meet John Myers, 'Liquorato' and author of the upcoming "What Would Jesus Drink: Cocktails for the Second Coming" and Leo DeGroff, one of the outstanding mixologists at BED-NY, New York's hottest lounge/club/restaurant.
The VIP hour starts at 5:30PM . Guests will have an opportunity to mix and mingle, in a more intimate setting, with experts, authors, distillers and others. Members of The Museum of the American Cocktail will host a cocktail presentation. Goody Bags will be given to VIP’s only.
General Admission begins at 6:30 . Throughout the evening, a dazzling culinary feast will satisfy even the most discriminating palate, while you sip dozens of delicious Vodkas and Gins while swaying to the sounds of our featured entertainment, the 'jazsical ' stylings of world-renown Christopher Gillespie.
