Leach Garden Summer Sippin' Lecture Series: Cocktail Bitters
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 • 7:00pm-8:30pm
(Doors open at 6:00 for refreshments & strolling.)
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR

Cindy Capparelli, proprietor of Portland Bitters Project, teams with The Meadow to help us understand the world of bitters and how to make best use of them. Bitters have been around a long time but with literally hundreds on the market today, many of us are uncertain about where to begin. We will learn about bitters’ original medicinal history as well as their modern-day uses. And we will learn how essential bitters are made - starting with organic roots, barks and seeds. Then, in the tasting, we’ll experience the role that bitters can play in adding complexity and punch to new as well as classic cocktail creations. Cindy founded the Portland Bitters Project in 2014. Mark Bitterman, owner of The Meadow, is the author of Bitterman’s Field Guide to Bitters and Amari. $15 admission. ($40 for the whole series) Advance registration required. To register go to (click on "learn") or call 503-823-1671. Leach Botanical Garden, 6704 SE 122nd Avenue, Portland, OR 97236.
