Perfect your “Madmen” cocktail-making skills. Discover how to make your own bitters for classic cocktails like the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the “Classic” Martini, and the Sazerac. Join author and culinary expert, Mark Bitterman to make, mix and taste at a hands-on workshop detailing the best practices for creating and enjoying hand-made, bitter-infused cocktails. Everyone will be a mixologist as we create a delicious, signature cocktail and learn the secret to 'Wowing' guests at your next party. Mark will also be signing copies of his new book, Bitterman’s Field Guide to Bitters & Amari, a perfect holiday gift for the Madmen in your life, and the Madwomen! A special workshop offered by the Horticultural Society of New York.

Mark Bitterman is a leading expert on culinary salt, chocolate, and cocktail bitters. His forthcoming book, Bitterman’s Field Guide to Bitters & Amari, is the most comprehensive handbook available on selecting, understanding, mixing, and cooking with bitters, for everyone from professional bartenders and chefs to casual entertainers and home cooks.

Mark has been featured in the New York Times, Splendid Table, Food & Wine, Bizarre Foods, and countless other media. Mark is the owner of the specialty store, The Meadow, with locations in Portland, OR and New York City. The shops carry the largest selection of artisan salt and cocktail bitters in the world, and perhaps the largest curated selection of chocolate bars.
