There’s more to learning how to make a cocktail than just following straight recipes. A traveling Cocktail Theatre show that aims to teach you how to make libations and has elements similar to the History Channel and The Rocky Horror Picture Show is making its way over to Santa Monica on Jan. 23.
L.A.-based molecular mixologist Rob Floyd, who’s designed cocktail programs for hotspots like Chateau Marmont, Hotel Roosevelt and SLS Hotel, has been running his normally sold-out Cocktail Theatre for the past two years, taking it to cities like Las Vegas and New York. A $50 ticket to the show, which takes place at Sonoma Wine Garden at 8 p.m., will get guests four cocktail tastings, paired appetizers and a zany show.
