Friday, February 2, 6pm: Cocktails and Dreams 3: A Bittersweet Symphony with Jesse Cornell

Price $100.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

Booze: it’s what for dinner. At least it will be at this COOK event (sort of!). Back by popular demand is celebrated local bartender, Jesse Cornell, for a “happy hour” featuring demos of four Amaro-based classic cocktails including Hanky Panky, The Muse, Rough and Tumble and Paper Plane. "Amaro," which means "bitter" in Italian, is a broad category of Italian bitter-sweet herbal liqueurs. Other nations including Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, and France produce their own local versions, but while Western Europe has enjoyed amaro for centuries, only recently has American interest in amaro bloomed. Jesse, who you may know from his time at Sbraga, Vesper, Whetstone and SkyGarten, returns to COOK for an all-things-Amaro happy hour this February. Jesse was named one of “9 Under-the-Radar Bartenders You Need to Know in Philly” by Zagat, as well as Philly’s Best Bartender by Philadelphia Magazine in 2015, so you’ll be learning from (and drinking with) the best! Please note that no full dinner will be served, but there will be light bites.
