FESTIVE TONICS & RESTORATIVES As the harvest season gives way to holidays, we look at festive cocktail concoctions and the need for a good digestif to help us process the culinary indulgences of the season. Join us for an evening of discussion and sampling as we look at the history of traditional tonics and herbal elixirs crafted both for seasonal celebrations and as a healthful remedy. From unusual hot toddies to the end-of-meal restorative, we’ll give you a new perspective on your holiday libations.
Our guest speaker, Dwight Grimm and his wife Leigh revived the Northern Catskills’ historic Greenville Drive-In movie theatre in 2015. As part of the revitalization, he established the Projectionists Club cocktail garden, a unique venue featuring his eclectic array of original tonics, bitters and sodas crafted from New York-sourced and global botanicals. His adventures in movies and cocktails are chronicled bi-monthly on his radio show and newspaper column, Cinema with a Twist and in a forthcoming book. He has a BA in Communication from Stanford University and is a graduate of the Herbal Bear Botanical Medicine Program in Grand Gorge, NY.
