Master Mixologist Dale DeGroff, aka King Cocktail, developed his extraordinary techniques and talent tending bar at great establishments, most notably New York’s famous Rainbow Room, where in the ’80’s, he pioneered a gourmet approach to recreating the great classic cocktails. DeGroff has since been credited with reinventing the bartending profession, setting off a cocktail revival that continues to flourish.

Winner of the James Beard Award for Wine & Spirits and author of The Essential Cocktail and The Craft of the Cocktail (Random House), DeGroff’s enormous influence in the bar world has spanned three decades. He is also a partner in the award-winning bar training program, Beverage Alcohol Resource (BAR) and founding president of theMuseum of the American Cocktail.

Saloon singing and storytelling is another passion of Dale’s. His popular presentation: ON THE TOWN; Bars, Speaks, & Legendary Saloons has been performed in over two dozen cities around the world. This year he is a featured guest during the Cocktails & Culture Festival 2017 bringing this exciting show to the Chef & Shaker Challenge on Saturday, June 3, at 5:00 pm at the Scottish Rite Temple in Santa Fe, partially benefitting Cooking With Kids.
