Patrón hosts Cocktails with a Conscience, to highlight the importance of sustainability with an exclusive sustainable cocktail masterclass followed by an equally sustainable three-course dinner paired with Patrón drinks featuring leftovers from the preparation of each dish. Created exclusively for the evening by The Conduit’s bar operations manager, award-winning mixologist Walter Pintus, and head bartender Cameron Moncaster, the cocktails will offer great inspiration for those consumers who enjoy experimenting in the kitchen with a touch of ethos.
From producing a flavoursome saline coffee infusion of blended coffee grounds with salt and water, to creating a blood orange sherbet from leftover squeezed oranges and peels, the evening will showcase how to transform leftovers into beautiful ingredients to mix with Patrón.
