Making Mad Men Inspired Cocktails

 

On Nov 4th, about 35 R:ED members and guests gathered at the Exchange Bartending School for a fun R:ED event.  We learned about cocktails and bartending and even got to go behind the bar and make our our martini with expert guidance from Brandon Whyte and his staff.  The evening included lots of networking time, so we had a great opportunity to meet new people from the area and chat over cocktails!
