About the Event
Take a journey through “the uncharted reaches of the cosmic ocean” at Epsilon Spires, where a screening of the first episode of Carl Sagan’s PBS series Cosmos will be paired with cocktails inspired by the show.
Aired for the first time in 1980, Cosmos combined revolutionary special effects and whimsical narration to take viewers on a dream-like voyage through space and time. The delightfully retro-futuristic aesthetic of Cosmos is enriched by Sagan’s observations about science, nature, and human civilization, which remain as relevant today as they were forty years ago.
Drinks designed for the event include the Molten Sunrise, a mezcal-based citrus cocktail rimmed in black lava salt, and the Crystal Cosmo, a clear twist on the classic that uses white cranberry juice and a rock sugar garnish.
