Last Thursday Science World hosted its second annual Science of Cocktails event. The event takes over multiple levels of science world and has a variety of exhibits and demonstrations including cocktail competitions, demonstrations, and a silent auction.
There are over 30 different drink stations that each feature a type of spirit and a bar tender who creates a special drink for the event with that ingredient. Since the event is called “Science of Cocktails” there is an emphasis on creativity and using unique ingredients and methodologies to make the cocktails.
My favourite drink obviously involved liquid nitrogen as it was the most visually impressive drink of the night. It was a gin based drink that was topped with a sour cream and fruit foam and liquid nitrogen.
Beside this station there was also a really cool “Gin and Tonic Pop Corns” which were essentially little soft frozen “kernals” of gin and tonic. It was super refreshing and something I have never seen done before.
Overall I thought the event was cool with a lot of interesting stuff to see, drink, and eat. The tickets are a bit pricy, but they include unlimited samples of all the food and drinks. If you are someone who likes trying new things and doesn’t have too many specific drink preferences you will likely enjoy the event.
There will be another event in 2018 and presale tickets are already available at $125 a ticket on their website. This event always sells out in advance so if you are eager to go you should take advantage of the pre-sale offer
