Bourbon Cocktails I: Historic and Classic Cocktails
Cocktails were developed on American whiskeys including Bourbon & Rye. In this class you'll explore the origin of American whiskey cocktails by focusing on the ‘Classic 5’: Old Fashioned, Whiskey Sour, Mint Julep, Whiskey Smash and Manhattan. The Kentucky Castle's Bourbon-Steward-In-Residence Tim Knittel will guide you through basic cocktail construction theory including: Spirit + sweet + contrast(s) + accent, techniques: stirring vs. shaking and order of ingredients, working with ice: hard, crappy & specialty ice, selecting whiskey for cocktails by flavor profile. You’ll get to taste each type of cocktail and then make your own!
