What you'll learn in this drink making class:

Turn your homegrown herbs and fruits into sophisticated drinks! Michael Blakeney, a private estate gardener whose botanical beverages have been featured in The New York Times Magazine, will show you how. 

He'll demonstrate how to concoct shrubs, or infusions made with vinegar, that can be mixed with seltzer or alcohol, using what's in season—from a summery basil strawberry shrub to an autumnal one featuring cinnamon and apple. 

Discuss the best ways to combine flavors and plan your garden, all while sipping refreshing samples on the deck of our newly opened Edible Academy overlooking the Bronx River
