Description

Sip with #SOBEWFF gets elevated with a special appearance by Mixologist Pete Siewruk of Sparrow at The Dalmar. Located on the top floor of The Dalmar Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Sparrow Rooftop is an intimate urban hideaway designed with adventure in mind - and adventure is indeed the main component in Siewruk’s intrepid cocktail creations. Together with longtime Festival friend, Gio Gutierrez aka @ChatChowTV, Siewruk will walk viewers through the layered flavor profiles, daring ingredients and audacious whiskey and vodka forward libations that elevate Sparrow.

Siewruk and Gutierrez will be joined by Robert J. Ferrara, Whisk(e)y Brand Ambassador, Pernod Ricard USA - and one of America’s Greatest Bartenders according to Thrillist -  and Teresa Cesario, Brand Activation Manager, Absolut Elyx, to chat all things The Glenlivet® and Absolut® Elyx. This will be a night for unexpected discoveries as you explore Siewruk’s luxe take on tropical-tiki creations, and sip the night away!

Please note: Cocktails for this class are made with the following base spirits: The Glenlivet® Caribbean Reserve Single Malt Scotch Whisky, The Glenlivet® Founder’s Reserve and Absolut® Elyx. Other modifiers may be required and will be outlined in the recipes.
