Join us and Master the Classic Martini!
“… the dry Martini takes years to master. The clear stillness and serenity of the final drink is an expression of the years of skill and experience of the person stirring it, and the proper execution of this cocktail is an exercise in honing the craft of cocktail making.” (Kosmas and Zaric; Speakeasy)
Join our Guest Mixologist, Stephen Cohen, as he walks you through mastering the classic martini! Be sure to come prepared with the ingredients listed on the recipes below. Stephen and SMPTE Executive Director, Barbara Lange, will chat about cocktails and take your questions. Once you have the perfect martini in hand, mix and mingle with fellow attendees!
