To celebrate the summer in style and compliment the upcoming Dressing Downton exhibition, the Lightner Museum will be evolving its Lightner After Hours program into a Summer Mixology Series. The Summer Mixology Series will seek to highlight the social trends of the Gilded Era, one of the more popular and iconic changes being the development of the cocktail. Guests will be able to sample specialty-crafted cocktails featuring St. Augustine Distillery products, and enjoy food-pairings while also learning how to entertain with ease and style in their own homes.
Held in the historic pool area, the Series will feature three enjoyable and educational nights devoted to exploring the social and cultural history of the cocktail hour and featuring some of the more popular spirits of the Gilded Age. Taking place once a month, June 21, July 27, and August 31, each mixology event will focus on one particular spirit, its history in America, and how it is best paired with particular flavors. July’s event features gin.
Tickets are $45.00 each and are available online by clicking on the event website link.
