Science of Cocktails February 2018 Vancouver

Sharing is caring!

The annual Science of Cocktails fundraiser took place on February 8 where the city’s most talented bartenders and chefs showcased the science behind preparing modern cocktails and cuisine.  1,500+ guests were in attendance and raised $276,695 for the Science World Class Field Trip Bursary.  The bursary gives kids from underserved schools an opportunity to go on a FREE class field trip to Science World.

The evening 20+ bar stations run by award-winning bartenders, paired with 12 food stations featuring molecular gastronomy from local talent.  Attendees enjoyed a variety of special cocktail science activities, hands-on science demonstrations and classic Science World fun.  Here are some my favourite moments of the evening:
