COCKTAIL HOUR LIVE with Uncle Nearest Master Blender Victoria E. Butler!
January 21 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
Join us once again for an evening of Uncle Nearest cocktails with our Master Blender Victoria Eady Butler, Jay Madison and Sailor Guevara.
Victoria will walk us through two beautiful cocktails.
We were looking to create something that lived somewhere between the classics, “Pink Lady” and the “Pink Squirrel. This cocktail pays homage to our new Vice President, Kamala Harris, a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Their signature colors are salmon pink and apple green.
She has such an amazing heritage, and wished to tie these together. One common thread with both Jamaican and Indian cuisine is coconut so we wanted to have it represented in this cocktail.
Our new Vice President’s middle name is Devi, which translates to “The Goddess,” which is certainly befitting.
