Get ready for a journey into the wild with Angie Jackson, aka The Traveling Elixir Fixer! Wildcraft cocktails, apothecary elixirs, medicinal mixology, and agriculture alchemy all await you in this workshop. Recipes from “Drink the Wild: Recipes From a Kitchen Witch for the Spirited and Sober Soul” are the headliners in this elixir show. Juniper berries, cardamom pods, apple cider vinegar, bittering agents, and other botanicals are used in creating the recipes. Attendees will sample these zero-proof elixirs and learn the stories behind the recipes. We can drink things that are delicious, good for us, and good for the wild world we are part of. All it takes is the right proportions of culinary mixology, herbalist tradition, and your inner witch.
