About the Event

Join us at our first ever summer mocktail party where we’ll be making, mixing, and tasting “everything but the booze”. That’s right, we’ll be exploring the juicy world of “shrubs” (a.k.a. drinking vinegars, a.k.a. super tasty, preserved fruit syrups). Shrubs came about in the 1680s when smugglers were trying to avoid paying import taxes for goods shipped from Europe. These smugglers would sometimes sink barrels of spirits offshore to be retrieved later. Since the salty sea water would often leak in and ruin the flavor of the alcohol, they began to add fruit to the barrels to mask the taste. Shrubs have made a recent comeback in mainstream mixology, and we’re ready to celebrate it, as we give summer a proper send-off! While these sweet, fruity concoctions will be more akin to homemade soda on the rocks, you’ll be able to take some shrub home with you, along with serving suggestions for enjoying them in adult beverages (if that’s your thing). Recommended for ages 8+. Admission is $10 for adults and free for children 12 and under.
