Discerning men from Draper to Hemingway can appreciate a sharp cocktail. What if science could make them even sharper? We know a guy.
Molecular mixology aspires to upgrade every element of your drink — aroma, texture, taste, aesthetics — to dizzying heights. Such breakthroughs are achieved through a combination of high-end machinery, innovative techniques and most crucially, innovative minds.
Hands-down, mixologist Tony Conigliaro - think Blumenthal gone boozy - is amongst London’s best drinks men (he also owns Esquire-frequented speakeasy 69 Colebrooke Row).
Conigliaro has partnered with Beefeater 24 to offer up a gin-soaked molecular cocktail session. Concocting the barman’s patented glowing martinis and grass-scented cocktails are the order of the day. But really, this is about you, premium gin and the quest for the perfect drink - not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Tony Conigliaro’s free molecular cocktail session is on Saturday 18 February, 3-5pm at The Drinks Factory N1 8QH. Guests must register in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Spaces are limited.
