Summer school is in session and Detroit Elites have been 5 star pupils, gathering to learn about spirits, summer cocktails, and culinary pairings at some of the most delectable eateries and cocktail bars in town. Together we’ve studied the ins and outs of low ABV and non-alcoholic cocktails paired with bright ceviche and seasonal flatbreads at Dragonfly Detroit Detroit, easy charcuterie with whiskey drinks at Cache Cocktail + Wine Bar, and sippable gin aperitifs followed by oysters and accoutrements at Hazel’s. Whew! Our arms are getting very strong from all that shakin’!
Many thanks to our sponsor and instructor, Bryan Gluth of Hive Inc for sharing his knowledge and portfolio of bevvies including Ford’s Gin, Old Forester, Slane Irish Whiskey, and Chambord. As well as our venue and food partners, Cache Cocktail + Wine Bar, Dragonfly, and Hazel’s for their hospitality and expertly paired bites.
