Nothing says indulgence like chocolate and cocktails. This Valentine’s Day, Bluecashew will deliver the best of both with a chocolate mixed drink class. What better way to toast to love on Cupid’s holiday?

Bluecashew has been holding cooking classes in its new uptown-Kingston kitchen as part of its “Learnin’ in the Homestead” series since the beginning of the year. Many of these classes are taught by award-winning cooking masters in the area. In January, former 32-year executive chef at The Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Brooke Vosika, taught one of the first classes on making the best risotto.

Sean Nutley of Bluecashew says the Valentine’s Day class will demonstrate “how to pair spirits with chocolate by identifying core flavors unique to some liquors and using these as a guide to make the perfect chocolate match.”

Mixologist Paul Maloney will guide the group in crafting exciting mix drinks, such as Graham's Kick, Chocolate Milk Punch, Doctor's orders, and spiked Hot Chocolate. Maloney and his wife Jenny run the trendy Stockade Tavern in Uptown Kingston, which Esquire Magazine named one of America’s Best Bars in 2014.

Joining him will be Bryan Graham of Fruition Chocolate, an award-winning chocolate maker based in Shokan. Graham will offer his expertise and help make a chocolate cocktail. The sweet mix drink will combine Fruition's Marañón Canyon Dark Milk, which won a Good Food Award, and a specially selected rum.

The Lovers Cocktail class at Bluecashew begins at 6pm on February 14. $65 per person, or $120 per couple. Call them at (845) 514-2300 to reserve a spot and satisfy that sweet tooth this Valentine’s Day.

More upcoming classes at Bluecashew include Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Oysters But Were Too Afraid to Ask with Sam Ullman on February 10, Oodles of Noodles with Corinne Trang on February 17, Chicken and Dumplings with Brooke Vosika on February 18, and Saint Patrick’s Day Cocktails with Paul Maloney on March 15.

  • Kingston Standard Sets The Bar for Community Breweries

    The Kingston Standard Brewing Co. aims to bring local folks together in a community-oriented space to drink and enjoy each others' company. The company strays from the popular IPA driven mission of most breweries, and instead provides light, drinkable beer and fresh, succulent oysters to foster a satisfying night out. While they primarily produce traditional Ales and Lagers, they also craft mixed fermentation style beers, including lambics and Flemish reds. However, this recently opened brewery is ever-expanding its drink list, so repeat customers will see more options arise in the future and can enjoy local wine and cider options available in the meantime.
