Eight food courses come with cocktails (inspired by historic female figures) such as Rosé the Riveter and the Tubmantini.
The eight-course pop-up dinner held Tuesday Dec. 6 at Great Lakes Distillery is inspired by a new book of “feminist” cocktails by Milwaukee writer Jeanette Hurt. (Featured libations include the Tubmantini, named after the abolitionist Harriet Tubman.)
Chef Ana Docta, who serves dinners in the tasting room of GLD (616 W. Virginia St.) in Walker’s Point, combines her fusion cuisine with four cocktails from Hurt’s Drink Like a Woman. The cocktails all incorporate Great Lakes spirits.
Courses include cucumber carpaccio with wild baby shrimp and chipotle mayo drizzle and creamy tomato soup with yogurt, feta and mint – both paired with a gin-cucumber cocktail called “Bewitched.” There’s also lamb goulash with Rosé the Riveter (a mix of vodka, wine, elderflower syrup, rosewater and fresh lemon).
Dec. 6, 6:30 p.m. Cost is $75 per person, which includes a signed copy of the book. To reserve your spot (and see more menu info), click here.
