Seminar by Philip Duff & Dave Arnold, Tales of the Cocktail, 2015, New Orleans.
Once the sole province of the most technologically advanced mixologists on the planet, decades of abuse by chain-bars making soulless drinks killed the blender's appeal to modern cocktailians. Slushie machines never even got a look in.
But then tiki bars made a comeback as respectable temples of mixology. And then slushie machines began becoming fixtures at trend-setting bars like The Artesian (London), Mother's Ruin (New York) and the Erin Rose (New Orleans). With all this, plus brand-new research from mixological mad scientist Dave Arnold's ground-breaking book “Liquid Intelligence”, it's time to, ahem, let it goooooooooooo!
Together with award-winning presenter, spirits educator (and ex-blender slave at TGI Fridays) Philip Duff, Dave will explain and demonstrate when to blend and when to slush, how you can make slushies without having to buy a slushie machine, the mathematics of frozen drinks, pitfalls to avoid when embarking on a frozen drinks program, the importance of sugar (and salt, come to that), how to translate a stirred recipe into a frozen one, and why your blender is a heater as well as a cooler, all featuring original research underwritten by Pallini, creators of the world's best-selling premium limoncello.
There can't be a city in the world with more frozen-drinks machines per square foot than New Orleans, so come on down to a room full of more different blenders and slushie machines than you can shake a stick at for stories of pull capacity, Chocolate Monkeys, and sugar-to-acid ratios.
(Oh - and the best frozen drinks you've ever had!)
