Mixology: The Art Of The Cocktail


Grab your little drink umbrella and join us for a liquid version of the Charlotte Talks monthly food show. This time we belly up to the bar and explore the popular rise of interest in cocktail making, or 'mixology.' Mixology has become a serious exercise with classes offered by well known culinary schools. We'll look at the science of mixing a drink and at the explosion of cocktail choices. We'll also look at a growing debate between traditional bartending and what makes a bartender a 'mixologist.' It's 5 o'clock somewhere, when Charlotte Talks.
