Pairs Well With Kit with Dexter Dutton, Head Roaster @ Thunder Coffee

Age(s) 21 – Adult

Register for a themed cocktail tutorial video with Dexter Dutton, Head Roaster at Thunder Coffee, a take-home kit with featured NON-alcoholic ingredients, and a librarian-curated list of suggested books that pair well with the cocktail. The recipe, as well as an equally delicious non-alcoholic version, is also included.

The Shanghai Noon: Dexter’s riff on the old fashioned puts a new spin on the classic western, marrying it with Eastern influences! Pair it with one of our suggested reads, which similarly blends refreshing elements with the usual western suspects.

You can also giddy up over to Thunder Coffee with your book, belly up to the counter, and order a Shanghai Noon from their menu starting in June.

Kit pick-up is Wednesday, May 26, at the downtown Main Library from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. A link to the video tutorial will be emailed out May 25 and posted on the library's Facebook page May 26.
