Event Details

Join us for a unique opportunity to delve into the art of clarified cocktails. Participants will discover the fascinating process behind creating these refined libations and watch our master bartender craft two clarified cocktails for you to indulge in. Throughout the session, you’ll learn the techniques, ingredients, and equipment needed to achieve clarity in cocktails, transforming them into elegant concoctions.

What is clarification: Cocktail clarification is a technique used in mixology to remove solids and impurities from cocktail ingredients, resulting in a clear and visually appealing beverage. This process not only improves the aesthetic appeal of a drink but can also enhance its texture and flavor profile. Clarified cocktails are often smoother and more refined than their unclarified counterparts, offering a unique experience both in terms of flavor and presentation. They are particularly popular in high-end bars and among cocktail enthusiasts seeking to elevate their drink-making craft.
