Granville—(January 13, 2016) Science and cocktails? That's the idea behind next month's charitable gala and night out in support of Science World and their Class Field Trip Program. The appropriately named Science of Cocktails event is all about discovering "molecular mixology" for adults on a night anchored by twenty-five different (open bar) beverage stations with hors d'oeuvres from Railtown Catering. (Fairmont Pacific Rim head bartender Grant Sceney, above.)
The night's cocktails will be courtesy of over two dozen of Vancouver's finest bartenders with proceeds going towards supporting underserved/funded Lower Mainland schools with free access to the science centre—an average field trip costs around $1000.
Last week, organizers previewed what's to come for Science of Cocktails at the Granville Room. Featured bartenders explored the physics, chemistry, and biology of three special boozy concoctions (in order pictured):
- Smoked pineapple martini made with vodka, smoked pineapple chunks, and chamomile syrup from Sceney and Fairmont's Lobby Lounge.
- El Ritmo nitro keg cocktail made with rum, Cynar, pineappe, lime, and coconut cream from The Diamond bar manager Giancarlo Quiroz Jesus.
- Chocolate old fashioned made with chocolate infused rum, dash bitters, and orange peel from Bambudda bartender Tarquin Melnyk.
The boozy fundraiser and night of craft cocktails happens on February 4th at Science World. Get your tickets here.
