Newport Vineyards presented “Making Spirits Bright” on December 8, 2016. The seminar was headed by Willa Van Nostrand of Little Bitte Artisanal Cocktails and Newport Vineyards’ Executive Chef Andy Teixeira. The two led guests through a cocktail and truffle making workshop. Nostrand instructed guests on “The Olympia Spritz” cocktail, which featured Bully Boy Vodka, Jules Theuriet Crème de Cassis, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao, lemon juice and Newport Vineyards Brut 2014. Executive Chef Teixeira taught guests how to make two kinds of truffles: a Smoky Bacon Truffle and a Chili Spiked Truffle.
