The Wonderful World of Whiskey (Whiskey 101)
54 Have Dabbled
Food & Drink
All our favorite silver-screen leading gentlemen (and ladies!) seem to have one thing in common: a love for good whiskey. And while they look effortlessly cool polishing off a glass without the slightest pucker of the mouth, we don't have the good fortune of being so poised.
The truth is, whiskey is one of those very 'acquired tastes.' And we're determined to add it to our repertoire of cool drinks to order at the bar, but first we need to do our homework. That's why we've joined Eat, Drink, Educate for this Dabble class that walks us through the basics of Whiskey. Learn what it is, how (and where) it's made, the differences among brands, how they're best served and what they taste like.
Leave class confident about which whiskeys you like and which you can't stomach, and how to properly prepare a glass. We'll be providing generous taste tests of four whiskey standards ... but, sorry, the 'aloof look into the distance' isn't included in price of admission. You'll have to practice that one in front of the mirror by yourself.
Come early or stay late to enjoy all of the awesomeness that is O'Donovans! Killer drink selections and specials from the bar and a food menu that is out of this world! Discover your new favorite spot on the North Side!
