Introduction to Mixology, Part 1 (Mixology 101)
“Martinis, Manhattans, Mojitos and Margaritas: Redefining the Drinks You Thought You Knew”.
2 hrs – This class teaches the fundamentals of home bartending, the necessary tools and cocktail construction, all through the building of four fundamental cocktails that most people misunderstand. By rediscovering these drinks and the ways they can be made you will come to understand not only how you really like your cocktails to be made, but how to order them so that you always get them that way, and more importantly, how to make them (and many more) for your friends and guests while entertaining. You will leave with a new perspective and a new set of skills that you can build upon in future classes.
This class is offered on December 8th, from 6pm to 8pm. All materials are included and you get to consume everything you make! Students must be 21 years old and older and will be identified at the beginning of class.
Sponsor products include Square One Organic Vodka, Plymouth Gin, Wild Turkey Bourbon and Espolon Tequila.
