Join Lifetime Learning for Cocktail Hour!

Micah LeMon, author and The Alley Light bar manager, is back to teach us about an important flavor component to a balanced cocktail – bitters. We will learn about “bitters,” why we find these flavors in bottles behind most bars, and how to make cocktail bitters. Micah will explain how to make a better connection to the biology of our palate and demonstrate how to make the flavor “bitter” work in crafting balanced and tasty cocktails.
