Bartender Matt Perkins of Cedar conducted a fun and delicious class as part of Cedar’s popular dinner series, “Sunday Experience.”

During this intimate gathering, guests dined on fresh bay scallop ceviche with avocado and pancetta and beautiful cocktails like The Crimson Slipper with Pyrat Rum, Campari, Cointreau and a lemon twist, all while Perkins demonstrated how to create Prohibition-era cocktails with the ingredients of your choice.

My favorite cocktail of the night is The Therapist with Silver Tree vodka, Domain de Canton, chocolate mole bitters and a garnish of espresso beans.  To accompany it, a small plate of Martin’s Angus Beef, mole pearl onions, honey carrots and pumpernickel tuile.

A “class” where someone does all the homework while I sit back and relax? Where was Perkins when I was in school?
