The Science of Mixology with Chef's Tasting Menu

199 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC 29401

Unlock the secrets to perfecting your cocktail party with two veteran bartenders of High Cotton. Logan Grimsley and Kristin Wenzinger will guide you through a hands-on class, teaching you how to match your cocktails with the flavor profiles of your food. By the end of the night, you'll have three classic High Cotton cocktails to add to your arsenal: the Charleston, the 199 and the world-famous Espresso Martini. Each cocktail is accompanied by Chef Chris Thompson's tasting menu and his professional insight into the gastronomic side of pairing food with cocktails.
