Lightner Museum's Summer Mixology Series
To celebrate the summer in style, the Lightner Museum will be evolving its Lightner After Hours program into a Summer Mixology Series. The first of the series will be held June 21st, 2017, from 5:30 pm. to 7:30 pm. in the museum’s Historic Pool Area.
The Lightner Museum is adding new programming to complement the upcoming Dressing Downton™ exhibition, coming October, 2017. 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 Manifest Distilling products, and enjoy food-pairings while also learning how to entertain with ease and style in their own homes.
“It will be as if Martha Stewart and F. Scott Fitzgerald were in attendance”, said Lightner Museum Educator Elizabeth Graham.
The Summer Mixology 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, each mixology event will focus on one particular spirit, its history in America and how it is best paired with particular flavors. Guests will be able to sample featured crafted cocktails and food pairings.
Tickets are $45.00 each and are available online by visiting www.lightnermuseum.org/summer-mixology.
