Drink the Wild: Recipes from a Kitchen Witch for the Spirited and Sober Soul

April 17 at 6:30 pm

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.

Angie Jackson aka The “Traveling Elixir Fixer” began her career behind the bar in 1996. She is a graduate of the Academy of Spirits and Fine Service, BarSmarts Advanced Bar Education Program, and the Advanced Culinary Mixology Academy.
In her 25-year career, she has designed and executed award-winning beverage programs for Chicago’s top bars and restaurants, numerous Midwest distilleries, national distributors, as well as global brands and celebrities.
Angie taught Culinary Mixology at Kendall College at National Louis University in Chicago before moving back to Michigan where she lives with her family in a magical urban cottage near the woods. Angie is the co-author of the book Drink the Wild: Recipes from a Kitchen Witch for the Spirited and Sober Soul.
