Event Preview: Science of Cocktails 2018

What’s more fun that pairing science with drinking? The answer is nothing. Science World is once again ready to put on one of the most inventive cocktail events of the year with the Science of Cocktails.

On February 8, 2018, Science World will transform into Vancouver’s largest cocktail laboratory.  At Science of Cocktails, the city’s most talented bartenders and chefs will showcase the chemistry, biology and physics behind preparing modern cocktails and cuisine.

Each ticket to this fundraising event includes open bar from 25+ bar stations curated by award-winning bartenders paired along with 12 food stations featuring molecular gastronomy from local talent. There are also special cocktail science activities, hands on demos, and classic Science World programming.

Earlier this month, they previewed some of the special cocktails that will be available for this year. Drinks included a Guatemala Colada made with coconut oil and lactic acid, a Yuzu saki-tini paired with edible caviar flavor using a calcium bath & molecular mixology, a Laminar jet streamed cognac old fashioned and a Southern Ginger Belle utilizing orange marmalade.

Those of course are just a few of the creative cocktails that will be on display at the full event in February. Some of the cities best bartenders are tapped to create some truly original cocktail experiences, along with a number of food pairings that of course provide their our gastronomic twist to the evening.
