History in a Glass: Queen Kumquat Sashay

Tuesday, May 25, 2021, 6 p.m.

History in a Glass is back! Join us for a virtual cocktail class and history lesson, all poured into one good time. Each month our friends at The Woods craft-cocktail bar will create a special libation based on a particular story from Orlando’s past, and our online gathering will feature a demo about how to make the drink, plus a dive into the history that inspired it!

We’ll send you the recipe, so you can create your craft cocktail beforehand to enjoy with the presentation, or follow along at home! Attendees to this virtual event receive $2 off admission to the History Center and a 25 percent discount at The Woods, in the heart of downtown Orlando.

Queen Kumquat Sashay
In the 80s and 90s, Orlando was home to the outrageously fun Queen Kumquat Sashay, advertised as the “parade for people who would not be permitted in any other parade.” Find out more about this beloved once-annual event that was a tribute to all things ridiculous.
