A perfectly composed cocktail, like composing a piece of music, is an art. Finding balance, highlighting specific notes and creating a harmonious product can produce a full-sensory experience. Using instruments to showcase the role each ingredient plays within a cocktail, we will walk through American Whiskey history with Jim Beam, live music, and perfectly composed cocktails.
Song & Tonic presents "La La Land: The Sounds & Flavors of LA" as part of the monthly social hour at Rowan Lofts, a beautiful loft apartment building in downtown LA. Our theme focuses not just on LA but on the vibrant diversity of its downtown area… an area that was once covered in citrus groves!
Inspired by Chef Louis’s dedication to using hyper local ingredients, Song & Tonic will tell the story of Los Angeles by pairing and deconstructing four LA inspired songs with four artisan cocktails featuring LA-based distillery, The Spirit Guild.
Each cocktail ingredient will be paired with an instrument, harmony, or melody from the featured song.
As we mix, shake & stir, musicians play melodies and sounds that emulate the ingredients and explore their relation to the full song.
