September 10 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

$40.00

Thursday, Sept. 10, 5:30 – 7:00 PM. Zoom class: Shaken, Not Stirred – Single Malt Whiskey Tucson Style & Savory Bites with Mixologist Jax Donahue & Chef Devon Sanner. $40.00 per screen.

Was James Bond right? Depending on who you ask, maybe yes, maybe no.

We’ll let you decide for yourself as you experience and learn from the best mixologists with our Making & Shaking Cocktails series. Just like a fine meal, memorable cocktails concentrate on flavor, use the finest ingredients, are artfully put together and topped off with a little love, too.

We’re teaming these innovative cocktail experts with incredible chefs who you’ll cook along with creating yummy little bites to perfectly pair with each drink.

It’s only fitting we kick off the series with Tucson’s own award-winning Whiskey Del Bac and its Brand Ambassador Jax Donahue and one of the city’s finest chefs, Devon Sanner, for this sip and cook along class.

In 2006, while drinking Scotch and barbecuing with mesquite scraps from his custom furniture company, Arroyo Design, Stephen Paul had a thought. Why couldn’t he malt barley over mesquite instead of peat, as they do in Scotland, for a single-malt whiskey with a flavor distinctive to the American Southwest? In 2013, three distinctly different Whiskeys Del Bac hit the local Tucson marketplace, weaving the rich mosaic of our Southwestern heritage with traditional Scottish distilling methods, yielding a truly unique blend of cultures and traditions in every bottle.

Mixologist Jax and Chef Devon combined their incredible talents for flavor combinations and pairings to create three amazing and guaranteed delicious offerings that will make any night of the week’s cocktail hour special and memorable.

Cocktail 1: The S.S.S with Whiskey Del Bac Dorado, honey syrup, citrus bitters and other ingredients.
Savory Bite 1: Prosciutto-wrapped fig, honey + chamomile goat cheese, thyme, prickly pear gastrique.

Cocktail 2: The Lawless Drinker, using Whiskey Del Bac Old Pueblo, passion fruit, vermouth and lemon.
Savory Bite 2: Ginger and lemongrass shrimp spring rolls with coconut and peanut dipping sauce.

Cocktail 3: Stone Fashioned, features Whiskey Del Bac Classic, peach syrup and other ingredients.
Savory Bite 3: Pecan and basil pesto bruschetta with heirloom tomato, balsamic agrodolce.
