Friday, April 6, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
6 to 8pm
with British bites
in Williamsburg (near Bedford L)
Port is among the finest fortified wine produced in the world, and though many of us know it as an excellent digestif on its own, there are also many incredible cocktails that make good use of this delicious wine.
Please join us for an early evening treat, welcoming Spring with a selection of delightful Port cocktails and small bites.
Here's what to expect:
• Arrive at a spaceous Williamsburg residence (approx. 5 min. from Bedford L stop) with backyard and subterranean grotto.
• Mingle with a unique crowd of creative and food-loving friends, as you start the evening off with a sip of Port punch (a recipe by cocktail historian David Wondrich).
• Learn a bit of history from special guest, Lorenzo Bakewell-Stone, an expert on Port visiting NYC from, naturally, Portugal.
• After the punch, imbibe on a selection of three different Port cocktails, while taking bites from passed small plates of modern British savories (including minted spring pea soup, curried chicken and Guinness steak pasties with cucumber yogurt sauce, parsnip chips, pavlovas with cream, berries, and pomegranates, cheddar and apples. Vegetarian options are available.)
• An incredible set by Jonny Rodgers, a guitarist, vocalist, composer, and tuned-wine glass performer who you will be hearing a lot more of in the near future! Get a preview via his video here: http://vimeo.com/21410115
• Tastings of each variety of Port: White, Rosé, Ruby, and Tawny will be available, for those who choose.
• Fine & Raw chocolates will provide a decadent send-off for the rest of your evening.
