The Art of the Culinary Cocktail class will be held this summer on Saturday, August 3, at the Woodford Reserve Distillery from 1-4 pm. This class is specially designed to introduce guests to the art of making “culinary cocktails.” The mixologist will lead participants through a seasonal Cocktail flavor wheel, designed to introduce their palate to flavors that go best with Woodford Reserve Bourbon. The focus of the class will be classic Kentucky flavors paired with Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Guests will taste peaches, honey, sorghum, savories, and herbs with Woodford Reserve, and discuss using those ingredients to make culinary versions of classic summer cocktails. Guests will look at the differences between juleps and punches and more traditional cocktails, and discuss savory cocktails. The class will finish with learning how to scale up recipes to pitchers and bowls for summer sized parties. Chef-in-Residence Ouita Michel along with her culinary team will present five new summer hors d’oeuvres, each designed to pair with a cocktail. Guests will finish with a tour of the Woodford Reserve Distillery. A credit card number must be given to secure a reservation.
