Vermouth Tasting with Micah LeMon author of The Imbible

We are so excited to have local cocktail master and author of The Imbible, Micah Lemon in the shop to taste vermouths and share some mixology knowledge with us. We will have copies of The Imbible available for you to buy and you may be able to convince Micah to sign your copy. We have a lovely little selection of aromatized wines some of which will be open for tasting. We hope you will come learn with us.

"LeMon managed the bar program at several Charlottesville restaurants before finding a home at The Alley Light, where he has overseen the bar since its 2014 opening. The Alley Light was a 2015 semifinalist for The James Beard Foundation’s best new restaurant award, due in large part to the inventive and well-executed cocktails that LeMon and his bar staff created. In addition to his work at the restaurant, LeMon owns Lemon Bar Services, a company that specializes in beverage catering with a focus on custom, seasonal and creative cocktails."

"A good cocktail is never a random concoction. LeMon introduces readers to the principle components of every drink — spirit, sweet, and sour or bitter — and explains the role each plays in bringing balance to a beverage. Choosing two archetypes--the shaken Daiquiri and the stirred Manhattan — he shows how bartenders craft delicious variations by beginning with a good foundation and creatively substituting like ingredients."
