Camper English Gin & Tonic

Join us in welcoming Camper English to Detroit to talk about his new little book on the Gin & Tonic. The recipe of this cocktail classic is simple enough (the answer is in the name- so he didn’t bother putting it in the book) but the drink has a long and hilarious history involving Dr. Seuss, the Bubonic Plague, cats airdropped onto Borneo, the invention of the color mauve, cobweb-sucking, blood-drinking, and the Panama Canal. It’s a cool story. Camper will be telling tales from the book while you’ll be enjoying cocktails.

Tickets include:
– Meet and greet with Camper English starting at 5pm.
– A fun talk by Camper on his new book.
– Book signing after the presentation.
– Two drink tickets
– One copy of the book (softcover, ~80 pages)

Camper English is a freelance booze journalist and the man behind He has written for publications including Saveur, Popular Science, the San Francisco Chronicle, Fine Cooking, Cook’s Science, Whisky Advocate, and Imbibe, and has been the North American poling coordinator for the World’s 50 Best Bars list for several years. Camper has visited over 120 distilleries, blending houses, and bodegas in more than 20 countries, judges cocktail contests internationally, and is a popular speaker at cocktail conventions around the globe.
