Mixology Class with Saxtons River Distillery

September 23, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Mixology Class with Saxtons River Distillery

Presented by The Trustees

Learn how to create craft cocktails using local spirits made right here in New England! Each cocktail will be made using Saxtons River Distillery liquors paired with fresh ingredients from Boston Public Market vendors to create signature flavors.

The Mixology Class will be a step-by-step demonstration introducing proper mixology techniques that participants can then use at home. The class will be formatted as follows:

  • The mixologist will discuss the spirits and the process of distilling, blending and aging Saxtons River spirits.
  • The mixologist will then demonstrate proper mixology techniques and will discuss flavor profiles, pairing suggestions, and presentation.
  • Next, the mixologist will demonstrate step-by-step cocktail building and will provide tips and tricks to creating a craft local cocktail.
  • And finally, participants will get to sample each of the cocktails created and the group will discuss the different flavor profiles and how you can adapt those flavors to individual preferences.

Along with the cocktails we will also be tasting locally-made bread from Somerville Bread Co. and Massachusetts cheeses from Appleton Farms.
