Dale DeGroff a.k.a King Cocktail

The Museum of the American Cocktail - New Orleans

On this day over two centuries ago, the first definition of “cocktail” appeared in print. Now that’s something we can drink to! Join our guest of honor, master mixologist Dale DeGroff, for this tribute to cocktails paired with delicious creations from chef Michael Lomonaco and his team from Center Bar at the Time Warner Center.
