Ever wonder how a new cocktail is created? What goes into it: base spirit(s), modifiers, and garnish? And then how it's named? Well, on June 14 MOTAC brings together three living legends, one of them, Dale DeGroff, aka "King Cocktail," a James Beard Foundation Award Winner and Who's Who Inductee, to tell the origin stories of five signature cocktails they themselves created, and why they carry the names so synonymous with their creators. Come pass a rich evening of storytelling and drinking, all while enjoying a spread of gourmet appetizers courtesy two-time James Beard Foundation Award Winner and Who's Who Inductee Sherry Yard.
