We’ll explore some of the more the unusual ingredients used in boutique bartending, and then open the class to experimentation and play. Once you have created your cocktail we will have a tasting to sample all of the drinks. By the end of the evening you will have a delicious, unique concoction.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here's what the press has been saying about Booze Époque:
Their cocktails are anything but ordinary. Instead of mixing a traditional Old Fashioned, for example, they’ve developed their own spin (what they call the “New England Old Fashioned”) with black walnut bitters, bourbon, brandy maple cranberries, and kumquats. Then there’s their most recent creation: a beet, cardamom, rose water, lemon, and vodka cocktail. It doesn’t sound like those flavors would go well together, but what you get is a drink that’s both earthy and refreshing.
Heavily influenced by the local food movement and seasonality, these ladies will ensure that the drink in your glass is a perfect representation of your theme and what’s in season whether you’re planning a pétanque tournament or a Yankee swap. And after having run into them at a recent Somerville event, and tasting two of their delicious punches, we can safely say that they know what they’re doing.
The ladies of Booze Époque are very chill, friendly, and awesome in person. The class deviated a bit halfway through, but Booze Époque were ok with it and had no problems shifting their presentations.
Can alcohol be art? For Meaghan Sinclair and Harmony Dawn the answer is yes. Their company, Booze Époque, seamlessly blends artistry, convenience, and magic.
Forget bar menus limited to plain champagne, red and white wine, and chocolate martinis. Meaghan Sinclair and Harmony Dawn, the spirited duo behind Booze Époque, create locally sourced cocktails that match a couple’s wedding style.
You know those elaborate cocktails you see on Pinterest that you always think you’ll make but end up just cracking a beer instead? This is the event to hit up if you really want to sample a fresh and complex cocktail (especially of the pineapple sort). Booze Époque is run by pair of ladies who are sure to wow you with their sensational mixology.
In addition to creating original drinks or twists on traditional beverages, Sinclair and Dawn handmake many of the ingredients they use in their cocktails. I was lucky enough to try several of their simple syrups, shrubs and garnishes (as well as their incredible homemade grenadine). After tasting them all, I can truly say these women are creating something special, with rich and sometimes surprising flavors that are truly unique.
First, let Meaghan Q. Sinclair and Harmony Dawn of Booze Époque serve some of their boutique cocktails, perhaps the “Mercado” of basil, lime, ginger, and gin or one of their 100 different martinis.
"It's like the art world. You can find beautiful art out there, but you can still be inspired to create something new," Sinclair says. "We just really love the process of creation. When I get excited about a flavor, I want to share with people."
Booze Époque Mission statement: "boutique cocktails & spirit alchemy for private parties and events." Honestly, that is just the tip of the iceberg, co-creators Meaghan Sinclair and Harmony Dawn Kelly bring even more to the table. Wow, did they blow me away with a high level of skill (leaps and bounds over me) and more importantly, hospitality.
