Wild Turkey & HotBox bring back classic skills to teach you to BBQ like a boss and mix drinks like a pro
Wild Turkey, the authentic American bourbon, is launching a series of events – the Wild Turkey 101s – giving you classic skills to make the most of modern life. Masters of their craft will be on hand to pass on the tricks of their trade, starting with life’s essentials: becoming a BBQ master by smoking meat, and making the perfect Wild Turkey 101 Old Fashioned cocktail. Wild Turkey have teamed up with meat-smoking pioneers HotBox to bring you three events held at HotBox, Spitalfields:
- - 5th July
- - 24th July
- - 30th August
Each £35 ticket includes two workshops, three Wild Turkey cocktails and a shared feast:
- - HotBox head chef Lewis Spencer will teach you to make incredible marinades and mouth-watering rubs, followed by how to smoke meat
- - Learn how to mix the perfect accompaniment, a Wild Turkey 101 Old Fashioned, with Wild Turkey brand ambassador, Sam Kershaw
The secret to an Old Fashioned is a big bourbon with a flavour that can stand up and be counted, because after you’ve added sugar, bitters, ice and an orange twist to engage the senses, the bourbon still needs to sing. Wild Turkey 101 fits the bill perfectly as it’s a classic American, high-proof bourbon – big on age, big on flavour, with a high rye content giving it a bold and spicy character.
After mastering your new found skills, you'll sit down to a well-deserved feast. Expect moist meat and crispy skin of smoked beer-can chicken, succulent smoked St Louis pork ribs and a slow-cooked brisket slider that will melt in your mouth. Plus sides guaranteed to deliver – from the big, rich punch of mutton barbecue pinto beans, to the citrus hit of pickled red cabbage slaw. To ensure that all these flavours are perfectly paired, there’s a choice of cocktails, all using Wild Turkey 101: Dixie Fizz, Paper Plane and, naturally the Wild Turkey 101 Old Fashioned.
Delicious food and good friends make the perfect moment to enjoy a Wild Turkey 101 Old Fashioned – and with these new skills, it’s a moment you can relive all summer long.
