Tapas & Cocktails (8/19)

Tapas & Cocktails PosterWednesday, August 19th will be a fun night out at Coteau des Prairies Lodge. Tapas & Cocktails is an entertaining evening of live music, craft cocktails and chef crafted foods.

We are thrilled to introduce North Dakota’s newest and Fargo’s only distillery. Proof Artisan Distillers produces a variety of premium handcrafted spirits using locally sourced ingredients. Proof’s lineup of liquors currently includes 2 Docks Vodka and Minions Gin, each of which will be featured at the event. Proof will also be unveiling a limited edition spirit you don’t want to miss!

This is a social event and guests will have the opportunity to make new friends and mingle with the artisans making the event possible.

Distillery owner and founder Joel Kath will be on hand to introduce his products and talk about launching a distillery in the heart of downtown Fargo.

In honor of back to school season, Fargo-based mixologist Elijah Larson is offering the course ‘Mixology 101’. Elijah will introduce the lost art of crafting a classic pre-prohibition drink and discuss the history of cocktails. Elijah’s demonstrations will also include modern cocktails and an in depth look at the essential bartender’s arsenal of ingredients. Included as a part of the event, guests will be served the cocktails shown in the demonstrations.

Chef Judd Eskildsen from The Toasted Frog in Fargo is preparing an incredible secret menu of tapas-style food pairings. Tapas are a Spanish inspired style of cuisine featuring small servings of gourmet foods. Expect to experience a wide variety of amazing flavors. Even though portions are small, there will be many different tapas served. Guests can expect to eat a full meal throughout the course of the event.
