Cosmic Cocktails Workshop (Online)

SUN 12 NOV 8PM: What happens when an astrophysicist and a bartender collide? Cocktails and mocktails in space! Join in on this live galactic drink crafting workshop.

Join astrophysicist Dr Alfredo Carpineti and artist Scott Gorham as they share both alcoholic and non-alcoholic recipes in this live mixology workshop. What does a nebula taste like in liquid form? What cocktail could we make with ingredients found on Mars? How would you mix a drink on the International Space Station anyway? What is the physics behind cocktail layering and what is the best technique to do it perfectly ever time?

Participants will take part mixing along at home while learning about the galaxy, and join in on creative challenges throughout the hour.
