Virtual Cheers to New Lawyers - Cocktail/Mocktail Class and New Lawyer Panel

Event Description

Currently, all bar association programming is REMOTE-ONLY participation. There will be NO in-person attendance until further notice. Thank you.

Calling all recent law school graduates and New Lawyers!

Whether you recently took the bar exam or plan to take it yet this bar year – we want to celebrate your achievements. Join us for a virtual mocktail and cocktail class with Twin Cities own Meteor Bar followed by a candid conversation with New Lawyers Section members. After Meteor walks us through the history and beverage making of both a cocktail and mocktail, sip on your drink while the new lawyers discuss what they wished they would have known entering the legal world and answer your questions. This is a great opportunity to build your network in a fun, lighthearted atmosphere during this challenging time for law students and new lawyers. While this event celebrates new graduates, we welcome all attendees! Current law students and new lawyers are encouraged to join. Register to receive a custom-made cocktail/mocktail kit created by Meteor exclusively for this event! Each person is allowed a plus-one if they’d like. If the plus-one wants to receive a cocktail/mocktail kit you will need to “add an attendee” when you register and list their first name, last name, and email address.
Meteor, rated 2020’s Best New Bar by CityPages, is a wonderful little cocktail bar that doesn't take itself too seriously. Meteor brings great cocktails to the people without being pretentious or too expensive. Its motto is "Old ass bar, good ass drinks". It's the brainchild of Robb Jones and Elliot Manthey, both well educated, celebrated and award-winning bartenders and rock and roll drummers.
This class will cover the history and the evolution of the Old Fashioned cocktail. We will explore the roots of one of the most essential cocktails and talk about why it's more of a "style" than a rule. The first half of the cocktail session will focus on how to make a basic bitters mocktail using everyday ingredients for those who prefer their beverages sans alcohol, including a discussion about bitters, what they are and how to use them, spirits education, random history, and more! The second half of class will walk you through how to make an Old Fashion using the cocktail kit custom-made for this class!
