Nightcap with Kara Newman!

Kara Newman

Catoctin Creek is DELIGHTED to host spirits writer and cocktail enthusiast, Kara Newman, for an event celebrating the release of her new cocktail book, Nightcap

A nightcap is the perfect way to end the night, and author Kara Newman knows just how to make them. This gifty, foil-accented book contains more than 40 cocktail recipes—some to keep the night going, some that will help ease you to sleep, some that can double as dessert, and some that can soothe the stomach after a hearty meal. There are classics like the sweet and creamy Brandy Alexander, new takes on old favorites like the Black Manhattan, which swaps an aperitif for the classic vermouth, and simple new ideas like the Open & Shut, which combines equal parts amaro and cognac for a slow sipper. Whatever kind of night it’s been, Nightcap is the perfect way to top it off.

About Ms. Newman:

Kara Newman is the Spirits Editor for Wine Enthusiast magazine. She's also the author of several books, including Shake.Stir.Sip., Road Soda, and most recently NIGHTCAP: More Than 40 Cocktails to Close Out Any Evening

Your ticket to the event includes three cocktails from the book, plus a signed copy of Nightcap by the author! During the event, Ms. Newman will be available for friendly discussion and any questions about the book.  Extra copies of the book will be available at the distillery for sale.  You can also order copies online, here
