Salt Lake City, Nov. 3 – Craft Lake City announces the December Holiday Mocktail Workshop with Bitters Lab at West Elm. The workshop will be held on Thursday, Dec. 1, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
In 2010, after developing an interest in handcrafted cocktails, Andrea Latimer started creating bitters in the basement of her home. The basement was dubbed the “Bitters Lab,” and in 2014, these bitters were featured at the Farmers Market as part of a bruléed fruit made with organic infused sugars. As the season went by, Latimer noticed that more people were interested in the bitters than the fruit, and in 2015, they reopened as Bitters Lab.
At this workshop, participants will learn how to make non-alcoholic versions of their favorite cocktails using Bitters Lab’s signature bitters to prepare for the season’s many holiday parties.
“Im excited to share with you my love and passion for creating handcrafted small batch bitters," says Latimer. "Come learn a little bit of history about these wonderful products that have been used for centuries to aid in digestion, use in food recipes, and of course, in your cocktails!”
Pre-registration is required. Tickets are $30 each. Class size is limited to 10 people. Visit craftlakecity.com/workshops or our Facebook for more information. West Elm is located at 51 Main St. Salt Lake City, UT 84111.
