Annual Members Reception & Mixology Workshop
September 10 | 4:45 - 6:00 PM ET
This is a Free Members Only Event!
We’ve added a new twist to CFA Society Washington, DC's ever popular fall kickoff event! This year, instead of serving the finest beer on tap, we’ll be teaching our members how to make delicious craft cocktails from home. Join your friends and colleagues for this year’s Annual Members Reception, featuring our first ever Mixology Workshop!
During the Mixology Workshop, you’ll learn farm-to-bar mixology concepts using simple and easy to find ingredients, like fresh herbs and fruits. Master mixologist Mitch Harris from Paradise Bar Events will teach basic techniques like how to cut garnishes properly and provide a tool tutorial on the proper ways to use a strainer, shaker, muddler, and jigger during this interactive and fun session.
Sit and watch or put your skills to the test in real-time as Mitch instructs the group. Most importantly, we’ve designed this event to be highly interactive! Ask questions, show off your favorite at-home barware, and be sure you’re crafting the perfect cocktail. Once our drinks are complete, we will leave the webcast running for networking and socializing!
