Join Phil Greene and Derek Brown of the Museum of the American Cocktail on this trek into the world of exotic cocktails.

Mixologists Chris Kelley of Mie N Yu and Tom Brown of Cork will demonstrate some contemporary approaches to making exotic cocktails for professionals and amateurs alike. Chef Tim Elliot will provide light fare and participants will sample several of the cocktails, including the Bombay Government Punch, Mai Tai, Moscow Mule and Chris and Tom's original creations!
