San Francisco, CA, USA — Celebrate the artistry of mixology, shaken with the science behind the craft, at the Exploratorium’s fourth annual Science of Cocktails,Friday, January 24, 2014. The fundraising event transforms the museum into a laboratory of libations, and gives curious cocktail fans the opportunity to get a brainy buzz all in the good name of supporting the Exploratorium’s education programs. Pre-sale tickets are available through December 2, 2013, at www.exploratorium.edu/
Science of Cocktails brings together physicists, master distillers, chemists and acclaimed mixologists for a party that educates as well as entertains. Explore the science behind the age old debate of shaken vs. stirred martinis, learn about the anatomy of a cocktail, or hack swizzle sticks and cocktail umbrellas in our Tinkering Studio, all while conducting your own pseudo-scientific investigation of a roster of surprising cocktails created by master bartenders. Past featured cocktails have ranged from a Fresh Persimmon Pisco Sour to a concoction called the QFF Cocktail, an intriguing combination of quinoa vodka, fig and Fernet.
Tickets to Science of Cocktails include open bar, ample hors d’oeuvres, and special activities. VIP ticket holders also receive access to the Top-Shelf VIP Lounge with top-shelf spirits, special molecular mixology demonstrations, and a few surprises.
Pre-sale tickets are available through December 2, ($95 general; $160 VIP). After that, tickets will be available at the regular prices until the event sells out, which it does!
