Build Your Cocktails With Confidence

boozeepoque

Cooking is a skill that often gets passed down from generation to generation, whether it’s grandma’s marinara recipe or dad’s grilling technique. When it comes to mixing drinks, however, the trusty hand preparing your beverage is usually a busy bartender who’s got other guests to tend to. Mastering the mechanics of cocktail composition at home can be daunting and expensive. So, what’s a curious cocktail lover to do? Look to the ladies of Booze Époque, that’s what. Meaghan Sinclair and Harmony Dawn are taking the mystery out of mixology, teaching the fundamentals and giving folks the confidence to make first-rate drinks at home

Great Week For BÉ! Edible Boston and Garden.org Articles!

It’s been a pretty fantastic week for us. Two wonderful articles have made it to press.  

The first is a profile piece in the Drinks Edition of Edible Boston.  We had a blast working with Brain Samuels, it’s rare to find someone who is able to capture us in words and photos.  You can see some of the great outtakes from this article on his blog, A Thought For Food.  Special thanks to Soluna Garden Farm for letting us take over their shop for an afternoon.  

The second article goes hand-in-hand with the Aphrodisiac cocktail class we just taught at CCAE.  The National Gardening Association asked us to come up with some Valentine’s Day cocktails for their website garden.org.

Hope you enjoy reading these as much as we have!

BÉTV Behind the Scenes!

We’re working on an exciting new endeavor, BÉTV!  We shot for the first time last weekend at our shared space at Kitchen, Inc in Somerville.

Our first episode will focus on one of our favorite cocktails, The Aviation. 

Here is a behind the scenes look at what we were up to. Many thanks to our incredible crew from Video/Visuals (and beyond).  We can’t wait to work with them again soon!

In the upcoming weeks we’re looking forward to shooting at GrandTen Distillery and with the venerable Brother Cleve. Stay tuned for tidbits and details and many more cocktails to come.
