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
www.leachgarden.org (click on "learn") or call

Avenue, Portland, OR 97236.
