This class is switching to Second Wednesdays

Check Out Our Current Schedule Here.

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 from 7pm to 9pm. All materials are included and you get to consume everything you make! PLEASE EAT BEFORE CLASS, as these cocktails can be a lot for some people. You certainly don't have to drink them all, but we recommend you eat before class. Students must be 21 years old and older and will be identified at the beginning of class.
