Mixology Class with a Botanic Twist!

Step into the fun of summer evenings at New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill with a hands-on cocktail making workshop with a botanical twist on multiple Thursday evenings throughout the summer!

Join mixologist Meredith Powell to explore how plants and spirits are and can be connected. Learn how to craft the perfect version of a foundational cocktail, then discover how to transform the basic recipe into a unique libation with the addition of herbs, spices, flowers, trees, berries, fruits, or vegetables.  Each workshop will help you build confidence as a creative mixologist by honing the skills of measuring, mixing, and mastering flavor. This workshop is sure to be an evening to remember!
