with Alex Rumsey of The Preacher's Son
Join us in the HKS Kitchen for our new cocktail series with Alex Rumsey to learn all about how to create the perfectly balanced cocktail and hone your bartending skills. Many beloved libations are flavored with citrus, but most home bartenders may not know all of the various ways that acids and citrus can balance out the flavor of your cocktail. Come learn the role that acidity plays in a cocktail, learn the technique of fat washing your liquor, and learn how to make unique simple syrups as Alex teaches you 2 different drinks filled with citrus juices that will tingle your taste buds! Charcuterie snacks and nibbles from Sweet Freedom Cheese will be available upon arrival. You must be 21 or older to attend this class. Recipes will be provided.
*All class ticket sales are final. No refunds or credit transfers to other classes are available at this time.*
MEET THE BARTENDER
Alex Rumsey began his bartending journey seven years ago in his hometown of Dallas, Texas working at upscale eateries like The Woolworth and Paul Martin's. He truly found a passion for cocktails and hospitality, but wanted a change of scenery and made his way to Northwest Arkansas in 2019. He began working at The Preacher's Son in Downtown Bentonville and never looked back! After more than three years with the establishment, which includes Undercroft Bar (a cocktail lounge underneath The Preacher's Son) and a seasonal rooftop bar, he is now the Lead Bartender/Bar Manager working with a talented crew to create innovative crafted cocktails and unique experiences for guests to enjoy.
