Sense & In-sensibility: Getting "Lit" With Jane Austen Mixology Event

Join JASNA Iowa member and amateur mixologist Allison Petersen as she guides you through the making of three Sense & Sensibility themed cocktail recipes. Recipes will contain historically accurate ingredients and the tutorial will include commentary on the history of said ingredients and the cocktail's relation to the time period and the S&S theme. And if you don't imbibe, fear not, mocktail versions of each drink will also be offered. Attendees are encouraged to bring a cocktail friendly snack to enjoy with their drinks.

RSVP will be required and there will likely be a small fee for supplies and ingredients.
