The National Archives Foundation is back at it with their History Happy Hour series. On June 29th, Global Spirits: American Cocktails will bring together top mixologists who will create original cocktails inspired by classic American drinks. As the bartenders blend their concoction for judges to taste, they will describe how they were inspired to create a modern take on an American classic. Guests will have the opportunity to taste exclusive cocktails created by eight of the top bartenders from around the country. Tickets are $60 for Foundation members and $70 for non-members. But we have good news, there is a chance for you to attend for FREE.
It’s time for a cocktail contest!
