Kara Newman, spirits editor of Wine Enthusiast magazine and author of six highly regarded cocktail books joins The Violet Hour's Toby Maloney for an evening that celebrates an essential, yet loosely defined category: the nightcap.

Newman's recently published volume, Nightcap: More Than 40 Cocktails To Close Out Any Evening, has been celebrated for her take on everyone’s favorite cocktail. Join us on August 14th, 7pm-9pm, for an evening of lively conversation, guided by Newman and Maloney, drawing from the writer’s recent release. Guests will partake in an intriguing and diverse tasting of late night libations from and inspired by Newman’s book, along with an opportunity for Q&A with the author. All guests will take home both the book and the know-how to pursue their own nightcap -making at home.
