Shaken & Stirred: Cocktails with Julia’s husband - Paul Child Classics

  • No Thyme to Cook LLC 14624 SOLOMONS ISLAND RD. S. SOLOMONS United States (map)

Mixologist Brooke Brown joins us for the next in her wildly popular Shaken & Stirred series. And this time we're celebrating Julia Child’s birthday with three of the cocktails she and her husband Paul would serve friends when they often entertained.  Using homemade syrups and fresh ingredients you will learn to create these craft cocktails and of course enjoy them too! No experience necessary, just come sip and enjoy the evening. You’ll prepare and enjoy amazing three cocktails. A light tasting menu is also included.

Carioca Quencher

Falling between a tiki drink and a Rum Collins, this highball by Paul Child originally called for Tom Collins mix, a sweet-and-sour carbonated mixer popular in midcentury cocktails. We’ve updated it with contemporary ingredients.

Butterfly’s Breath

A small collection of Paul’s recipes, written on 3-by-5 index cards, was recently discovered in Julia Child’s archives. Among them is this sweet, apricot brandy–laced riff on the gimlet.


Named for the gemstone, this cocktail by Paul Child gets its ruby color from beet juice. Use fresh or bottled beet juice, or even leftover liquid from cooking beets, to impart color and a faintly earthy-sweet aroma.
