Tad Carducci MOTAC Workshop on Spice

The Museum of the American Cocktail is bringing Tad Carducci to the District later this month to give a presentation on spice in cocktails. Tad’s a phenomenal bartender whose creations I had the pleasure of drinking at last year’s Repeal Day Ball. Here are the details for the April 22nd event.

From 2500 B.C. to 2010, a look at the importance of spices and herbs; as medicine, as currency, as foodstuffs, and, most notably, as flavoring agents for spirits, liqueurs and cocktails. Join us on a whirlwind journey back in time and around the globe to shed light onto an exotic and illuminating topic that most of us take very much for granted, while, of course, we “spice it up” with cocktails.

I’ve been posting these Museum of the American Cocktail events for two reasons: First, they are really informative sessions that allow you to go deep into the history of a particular concept or drink. But perhaps more importantly, it was a Museum of the American Cocktail workshop, led by Phil Greene and Derek Brown, which really introduced me to the DC craft cocktail seen and set me on the path to where I am today. It’s an opportunity that I think more people should have available to them and if you’re reading this blog, there’s a good chance it’d be up your alley.
