Join us and our friend Sonja Kassebaum, one of the founders of North Shore Distillery (and an avid cocktail nerd), for a spirited discussion of the history of cocktails over the last 150 years. Each month, we’ll explore, discuss and sample what people were drinking during a specific period of time, starting with the birth of the cocktail in the mid 1800’s. We’ll incorporate some local history along the way where we can find it. Also, there are some interesting stories in the history of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff related to cocktails, spirits and Prohibition.
Class #2: The Golden Age of Cocktails and the Dark Days of Prohibition, 1900- 1920s We’ll make, taste and discuss some of the amazing cocktails developed during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Adult Admission: $30.00
