PRICING: $65 CAD plus taxes and ticket fee


We all know and love classic cocktails, but do we know why they’re so famous? The best way to find out is to taste them all!

Join us for cocktails and charcuterie as we take over the bar at The Alpine, a Junction hotspot known for European inspired food and expertly prepared drinks. Sip on 5 classic cocktails, each famous in their own right, while learning how to make them yourself.

This one-time event showcases the lesser-known stories behind famous cocktails throughout the ages, paired with a charcuterie spread that can be crafted for meat and cheese lovers or simplified for a vegetarian option. 

In true Tastes & Tales fashion, we’ll be showcasing each recipe while discussing the unexpected reasons these cocktails became mixologist staples. Taste for yourself and see why the classics are still popular to this day!
