Dom Costa, one of the most internationally famous Italian bartenders, is considered to be a historian of the cocktail. He harbors a rich knowledge of the evolution of mixed drinks, to be told with a mixture of specific details, anecdotes, and legends. In this workshop, the subject will be addressed by a myriad of perspectives which will not only touch on technical aspects, but above all discuss the transformation that characterized the “Drink Eras”. Dom will guide you through the history of the cocktail, from its inception to modern times, and all the stages in between: from the Jazz Age to Prohibition, from the Club de Cantineros in Cuba to Tiki mania, from the era of disco music to the return to the classics. Why wait to book this trip of classic libations of the past?
