Gustology Creates Confident Cocktilians
Published: November 13, 2013
The November drink list consists of a few classics (an Old Fashioned here, a Sidecar there, a dry martini to end the month), while also catering to its audience: Alamo Heights moms and early 30-somethings. You’ll find fruity concoctions like cranberry and apple Old Fashioneds and a pomegranate margarita.
Fans of Gusto will be able to enjoy signature drinks such as the Cupeño and the St. Pierre soon enough, but for now the idea behind the late bar is stillalive at Gustology. The ingredients are fresh and the liquor is local or eco-friendly (Guerrero’s currently using 360 Vodka, which requires less energy and materials to make, as one of his main spirits).
Attendees can expect to learn how to muddle, strain and yes, shake, while surrounded by friends in this very hands-on environment. The take-home gift of printed recipes and a marked pint glass that spells out margarita ingredients is a sweet bonus.
“There’s a psychology behind it,” Guerrero said, “you’re having fun with your friends; it’s going to make you want to go home and try the recipes.”
