M is for Mixology
An introduction to the five main spirit categories, vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and whiskey, through five of the world’s most popular cocktails, the Moscow Mule, the Martini, the Mojito, Margarita, and the Manhattan. While you learn how to make each drink and the hand skills involved in modern mixology, we'll tell the story of the people and places that created the drinks and their colorful history.
Light snacks will be served.
