Cocktail Workshop – February 18th , 21:00

We all know that a PhD is all about research and exploration of new possibilities.

This, however, need not be restricted to science and the humanities. The wonderful world of cocktail making is also an area that requires further research.

Before you can experiment on this new frontier we offer you the possibility of participating in a cocktail workshop. This workshop aims to teach the basics of cocktail making. You will have the  possibility of making your own cocktails and learning the basic tricks of the trade. For this subsidized activity we will ask you a small contribution of €10. Register early to avoid disappointment.


Where: San Remo, Enschede (directions)
Date: Friday 18th February 2011 (registration deadline: Feb. 16th)
Time: 21:00
How much: €10 (to be paid on spot)
Capacity: 25-30 people.
