Join us for drinks and a discussion of how plants make great beverages. Ellen Zachos, author, forager, and mixologist, will discuss the use of native and foraged plants in mixology, while you taste a few specially cocktails, created from local harvests. She'll also be signing copies of her new book, The Wild Crafted Cocktail. You might be surprised by how many "worthless weeds" actually make tasty drinks. Elisabeth Forrestel, PhD, an expert in grape vinesand plant ecology, will explain a little about the evolutionary history and ecology of wild plants, and how this knowledge can help protect the future of wine grapes and other crops essential to the production of alcohol.
