Beverly Hills,CA(Spiritsman)7/31/12/—The Institute of Domestic Technology presents Cocktail Crafting, an inaugural class in partnership with the City of Beverly Hills. Instructed by Oldfield’s Liquor Room/ 1933 Group Mixologist, Aaron Stepka, Cocktail Crafting will take  place at the secret speakeasy hidden inside the historic Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.

Stepka will lead this artisanal cocktail lover’s dream class.  Participants will be gathering ingredients ranging from the apothecarian’s cabinet (bitter herbs, flowers, roots etc) for mixing and manifesting the perfect recipe. The class will cover the history behind bitters making, as well as some common and not so common ingredients that make up traditional and new essences. Each participant will get to create a unique bitters formula to take home plus they’ll get to  incorporate them into a personalized signature cocktail.  Participants will also use pure grain spirits to make their own unique liqueur infusion from a citrus flavor bar.

“Triple Sec will forever be banned from your liqueur cabinet after this class!  For those of you with an adventurous palate, we’ll also be infusing coffee beans and lavender just to shake things up!” comments Stepka.
Stepka will also show the basics as well as the tricks and secrets in creating what is takes to create the perfect balanced cocktail. The fruits of labor will be played out by enjoying cocktails together with a selection of artisanal cocktail snacks.
