Info

Journey Back to an Historic Riverside Tavern for an Early American Cocktail Tasting! Join us as the museum's Lay House is transformed into a riverside tavern for an Early American Cocktail Tasting. Come and learn about early American cocktails!  Taste the popular mixed drinks before the time of vermouth - when the Old Fashioned was a new thing!  Sample a traditional brandy and rum punch, a sherry cobbler, a rye sour, and the original cocktail made with "Holland gin".  Patrons will enjoy the equivalent of two to three full drinks.  Your barkeep is Professor Steve Gencarella, the museum's folklorist and an expert in the history of alcohol. The evening will also include music from Dan Thompson and Dan Spurr, historic games such as Skittles and Captain's Mistress and a food pairing of American cuisine.  A sampling of Roasted Corn Chowder followed by fruit cobbler bites is on the menu from Catering by Selene.  Wine and beer will be available at a cash bar.
