Flavors By Design - Crafting the Cocktail


Image of Jerry Thomas from wikipedia
 

Jerry Thomas, an American bartender from the 1800's, is often credited for being the first person to document recipes for mixing cocktails in his seminal work, How to Mix Drinks.
 
 

Since that time, the cocktail has been a part of American history.  The cocktail's flavors have been influenced by major events in American history as well as being an influence to history itself.

Cache Bouren, a master bartender credited with bringing the craft cocktail movement to San Jose, and fellow master bartender Tomoyo Yoshinaga will be doing a series of talks at some SCCLD libraries that will explore the colorful history of cocktails and then focus on the techniques modern bartenders use to design flavors. (NOTE: There will be no alcohol served at this program.)

Our presenters have also been kind enough to create a list of recommended reading that follows both the history and the flavor development of the cocktail through the years. Check it out!

Enjoy and cheers!
