2023-10-13 – Høstlige Frukt: Divine Flavors of Fall Cocktail Class (Online)



Friday, October 13 (7:00-8:00 pm CT)



Malina Bickford



This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


It is autumn
a plum is falling, apples,
the fruit falls
and the soul's engineer
is measuring the universe with a teaspoon.
It snows in the snow, snows in the rain,
it snows in your back,
Stars falling.
      • Tone Hødnebø

Join us for a delightful fall cocktail class where we celebrate the rich bounty of autumnal fruits and flavors! From juicy apples to luscious figs, you’ll discover how to transform these seasonal treasures into captivating creations.

Bring your favorite aquavit! Malina Bickford, bartender, aquavit educator and Global Brand Director for Åhus Akvavit, will discuss Nordic folklore associated with our autumnal ingredients and guide you through creating two fruit-forward, crowd pleasing cocktails plus a spirit-free “mocktail.”

Whether you're an aspiring home bartender or simply a lover of all things autumn, this class promises to be a delightful journey of discovery and indulgence.
