Touring the Cocktail: MOTAC Los Angeles Presents 

“Baijiu: Spirited Essence of China”

Monday, September 22 at 6:30pm
Hakkasan Beverly Hills, (233 N. Beverly Dr., Beverly Hills, CA)
$40 in advance/$35 for SoFAB-MOTAC and USBG members

The Chinese invented distilling over 2,000 years ago, but the spirits made there, despite being the world’s most widely consumed strong drink, are little-known outside the country. We’ll sample traditional baijiu and see how it’s used in 21st-century mixology during the next installment of Touring the Cocktail: MOTAC Los Angeles. The evening begins at 6:30pm with gourmet appetizers from Hakkasan, followed by an explanation of traditional baijiu and a demonstration of its use in modern cocktails. Seating is limited to 30, so reserve in advance to avoid disappointment!
