Bottoms Up! SoBou Partners with museum of the american cocktail to host a series of monthly seminars in 2013
Bar Chef Abigail Gullo kicks off the new monthly series with a seminar titled "I'll Take Manhattan," discussing the history, techniques, and variations of the beloved classic cocktail

(New Orleans, LA; December 21, 2012) - Looking to brush up on your mixology knowledge in 2013? You're in luck! New Orleans' "Spirited Restaurant" SoBou has partnered with Museum of the American Cocktail (MOTAC) to host a series of monthly seminars, each focusing on a different aspect of cocktail culture. The series will take place on the first Monday of the month, beginning January 7, 2013 at 5:00 p.m., where SoBou's Bar Chef and New York City transplant

Abigail Gullo will lead a seminar entitled "I'll Take Manhattan." She will discuss the history and techniques behind this beloved cocktail, as well as demonstrate the classic version of the Manhattan (typically made with whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters), along with two variations.

"I've been dreaming about hosting a seminar like this for years," says Bar Chef Gullo. "The Manhattan has always had a special place in my heart - in fact; it was the first drink my grandfather taught me to make. For me it combines history, both personal and otherwise, along with my favorite spirits, and the city that inspires me."

The event, which is sponsored by Wild Turkey, will be held at SoBou, located in the W New Orleans - French Quarter. For $35 (MOTAC and SOFAB members receive a 20% discount), guests will enjoy bites from SoBou along with Manhattan cocktails and spirited conversation from the Manhattan girl herself. 

Advanced tickets can be purchase by visiting http://www.museumoftheamericancocktail.org/ (Limited space is available). There will be no event in February due to Mardi Gras and Super Bowl XLVII. Seminars will be held on March 4 and April 1, with topics to be announced at a later date.

About Abigail Gullo
A New York native, Abigail Deirdre Gullo began her career in cocktail-making in 2005 while living in Manhattan working at a handful of restaurants and bars, including serving as head bartender at Fort Defiance in Brooklyn, and later helping open The Beagle in the East Village. In addition to blogging about her craft at RyeGirl (http://www.ryegirlnyc.blogspot.com/), Gullo's original cocktails have been recognized in numerous national and international competitions as well as in the media. Her Margarita won People's Choice at the 2010 Tales of the Cocktail, and her drinks have been featured in The New York Times and In The Mix magazine. A member of the United States Bartenders Guild and proud supporter of the Museum of the American Cocktail in New Orleans, Gullo prefers a stirred, not shaken, Manhattan made with a fine-quality, small-batch rye whiskey.
