Touring the Cocktail: MOTAC Los Angeles


Join us Valentine's Day Eve (and, as it happens, Mardi Gras!) for The Museum of the American Cocktail's liquid ode to romance. Noted spirits and style writer Georgette Moger-Petraske will present a very special "sweetheart" edition of MOTAC's popular Touring the Cocktail series, demonstrating how to make the spirited most of an amorous affair. Georgette also will sign copies of Regarding Cocktails, the award-winning book she co-authored with her husband, the late Sasha Petraske, mentor and inspiration to a generation of master bartenders.

Guests will enjoy five romantic cocktails prepared by the evening's drinkmaster Raúl Pool and organic Mexican dishes from the kitchen of Mi Corazón, the newest culinary star of Silver Lake, one of Los Angeles's most eclectic cultural enclaves.

Tickets are $40 for National Food & Beverage Foundation (NatFAB) and USBG members, $45 General Admission in advance, and $50 at the door (if available). NatFAB membership is available to all at
