Molecular Mixology Master Class

I think that if you are going to drink, you might as well do it scientifically. At they've been teaching Molecular Mixology
The key to this new discipline is the combination of the unusual and the unexpected. Rather than match ingredients that traditional cocktail making suggests might go together, bartenders are now matching ingredients with a similar genetic make up. Incredible new flavours, textures and ways of serving are being created, using the principles of chemistry and physics as a source of scientific inspiration and guidance.

The original course was taught at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, which I suspect is beyond the means of all but the most successful geeks. Fortunately, you can now watch the course on video. I think a molecular mixology evening where the attendees were supplied with interesting ingredients and challenged to create a new cocktail would make for a fabulous party. All in the name of science, of course!
