GARDEN TO GLASS:
Cocktails in the Spirit of Incanto
Join local mixologist Beth Dixon as she showcases her cocktail creativity by demonstrating how to make three delicious craft cocktails inspired by the Garden’s exhibit Incanto, An Oasis of Lyrical Sculpture. Watch Beth evoke the mirrored surface of Resonant Passage through Alex Day’s Smoke & Mirrors using scotch, lime, mint and absinthe; showcase the bounty of Earth’s natural resources featured in Source Code through a Tequila Mule using carrot, ginger and agave; and celebrate our Ancestors through a punch (the original cocktail) using gin, citrus, sugar and spice. Enjoy cocktail samples expertly paired with delicious small plates. View the sculptures at the beginning of class prior to sunset and at the end of the class when they’re dramatically lit from within after dark with Garden Guide Anita Waters, who will share details about the artwork, artist and installation of the sculptures. Weather permitting, class will be held under the tents at Bloemendaal House. The Incanto exhibit will leave the Garden on October 29th, making this your one and only opportunity to experience these inspired cocktails!
