New to the NW Spirits Show in 2014, Kitchen Cocktails is designed to bridge the gap between hosts and excellent cocktails. Focusing strongly on using ingredients already in the fridge, this programming is developed with the host’s budget and sanity in mind. Showcasing will focus on building out cocktails featuring the sponsored brand and simple techniques and a mind set that will keep you moving, even if you don’t have all the ingredients called for.
