Following up to my recent meal at Cedar Restaurant, I got word that they are hosting a cocktail class as the 2nd part in their dinner series, Sunday Experience, on Sunday April 29, 2012. The leader of the pack, mixologist Matt Perkins, plans to take guests on a journey down pre-Prohibition Era cocktails. With the use of local ingredients and an imagination, the recipes boast a look at cocktails in a way you have never seen around these parts. No cocktail would be right (*well in my book…) without food which is why I was excited to hear about Cedar’s new executive chef, Chef Aaron McCloud, line up. Five small plates inspired by the restaurants theme of contemporary country fare make up the pairing menu.
Guests can look forward to pairings of Roast Duck Mouselline alongside “The Southern Senator” cocktail and fresh bay scallops ceviche alongside “The Crimson Slipper” (*Pyrat Rum, Campari, Cointreau, dash of Peychaud’s bitters…yum.). Since time is of the essence I made it easier to snag your tickets after reading this: give them a buzz at (202) 637-0012. Cheers!
