New Cocktail Class Series

Posted By on Wed, Jan 11, 2012 at 11:30 AM

What Aaron DeFeo does with liquor is about as close to alchemy as I ever expect to get. I remember one afternoon when he mixed an ancient recipe for what he called "the original martini" and how the three or four liquors used morphed into a new flavor that tasted nothing like any of the constituent liquors employed.

Since he's take the reins of the cocktail programs at Casino Del Sol he's taken his passion for crafty libations to new places. He's playing with a little molecular mixology and has basically infused the entire casino with some of the finest drinks around.

And now he's getting ready to kick off a new cocktail-class series that he says will be akin to what he offered when he ran the cocktail programs at Hotel Congress and Maynards. The first one takes place Saturday, Feb. 18, and attendees even get a bar tool. More information on that over here.

DeFeo says five more classes will follow, and that those who attend the entire series will end up with a full set of bar tools and a "certificate of distinction."
