Upcoming Class, DIY Bitters and Elixirs for the Holidays

bitters-and-elixirs-class

In this class, you’ll learn to make two highly nuanced and delicious herbal concoctions: digestive bitters, and herbal elixirs. This is a special, collaborative workshop between two local herbalists bringing their experience to the table.

First, Natalie will walk you through making herbal digestive bitters, usable as a cocktail ingredient or as a digestive aid. She’ll talk about the basics on how to make a tincture, and about the medicinal benefits of bitters. Think Gentian, orange peel, cardamom and grapefruit. She’ll have a DIY bitters bar available where you can make your very own concoction to bring home.

Diana will show you how to make an elixir, and will bring a dazzling array of her elixirs to sample. Learn about the benefits of using alcohol and honey to create tasty and medicinal preparations youll love. They make great gifts for herbalists, foodies and cocktails lovers alike. Youll be able to take home a bottle of an elixir for yourself!

The class fee includes a $15.00 materials fee, which includes a 4 oz jar of your own blend of bitters, and a 1 oz bottle of herbal elixir. Tickets available at:

Please be aware that we will be handling alcohol in this class, and all preparations we will be making contain alcohol.
