August is the Sunday of the Summer.
Autumn is approaching but there is still time to enjoy the sunshine and the season’s harvest. We’re hosting a Cocktail Social on the Kitchen ZINC Patio to welcome back New Haven residents and bask in the last of the warm weather.
We’ve reached out to a local company to see if they would co-host an event with us and we're so excited to have Hartford Flavor Company, creator of Wild Moon Liqueurs, join us for our Cocktail Social! So save the date, Thursday, September 21 from 5:30-7pm. We will be creating four craft cocktails using the delicious elixir from the Hartford based company and Denise will create a small menu of light snacks to accompany the tasting of cocktails.
For those unfamiliar with Wild Moon Liqueurs, we want to share a little of the story behind the tincture. Locally owned and operated, this venture started with the Cranberry flavor being made as a gift for family and friends. Being so well received, it got the founders thinking about the flavors and their feelings on liqueurs already on the market. They enjoyed a taste of liqueur after dinner, adding it to excite their champagne, or even mixing it into cooking, but they found that most liqueurs were a bit lack luster. The flavors didn’t pop as much as they would like or the sweetness was overpowering. So, they decided to venture out and explore unique flavors and thus, The Hartford Flavor Co and Wild Moon Liqueurs was born.
It started with the flavor that was only reserved for family and friends at first, Cranberry. Lavender was the next (it's one of ZINC’s favorites to use in cocktails) They used trimming from their own plants to create this experimental flavor and it was so good they knew they needed to continue. Rose, Chai Spice, and Birch came shortly after that. The flavors were strong, but not over powering; sweet, but not masking the true flavor. After hearing great things from close family and friends, they decided to have a tasting for other various groups and industry people. To their surprise, everyone loved it! Exclaiming that they needed to sell this ‘magic in a bottle’ as soon as possible. We're glad they listened!
We’re so excited to host a Cocktail Social using these fabulous liqueurs! We’re crafting up four signature cocktails for you to taste, accompanied by light hors d’oeuvres. Representatives from The Hartford Flavor Company will be there to answer all your questions and educate you on the liqueurs. You won’t want to miss this event! Thursday, September 21 from 5:30-7pm. Tickets are only $15 and you can get yours today at cocktailsocial.brownpapertickets.com
