Vodka Classics Cocktail Seminar

Join Philip Greene of The Museum of the American Cocktail, and Dan Searing, co-owner of Room 11 and author of Punch, on Tuesday, March 20 from 6:30 to 8 PM, for a seminar on Vodka Classics.
Today, vodka is now the world's most popular distilled spirit, yet it was virtually unheard of in the U.S. at the end of Prohibition. Guests at this seminar will learn about the origins of vodka, how the Smirnoff brand was spirited out of Revolutionary Russia (via France) to the U.S. Attendees will also learn how vodka was successfully launched, established and entrenched by a number of classic cocktails, notably the Moscow Mule, Bloody Mary, Vesper, Caipiroska, and the Cosmopolitan, while sampling appetizers and vodka-based cocktails.
The seminar will be held at the Warehouse Theater, 1021 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001 (the space is accessible via The Passenger) Tickets are $45 in advance, and $50 at the door. For more info and to register, please go to:
