Event Details

CLASS BY ASSOCIATION offers cocktail enthusiasts an opportunity to delve deeper and refine their knowledge. Classes explore bar basics, tools and techniques as well as individual spirits, their history and use in classic and contemporary cocktails.

The Association's head bartender, Scott Cushman, hosts the 45 minute classes every Friday & Saturday from 8:00pm - 9:00pm, with each class focused on different levels of expertise and topics. Saturday classes delve deeper into topics already covered in previous classes (aka: for the true spirit nerd!); Friday classes are our "basics" class. That said, you are not required to attend the classes in any particular order and both are offered in a way that everyone can follow along.

The IBA (International Bartenders Association) is the end all be all of Cocktails. If a cocktail makes their list, it has truly made it, though not all are famous. In this class we will look deep on this list and introduce you to the Forgotten Unforgettables. 

Some Cocktails are destined for greatness. this class wil cover those that are too new for the IBA, but too good to not be known by every drinker. Lets discuss.

8/30: SOURS
One branch of cocktail-dom, the sour is when we add juice to balance out a cocktail. Come try these sometimes sour sometimes sweet but always delicious cocktails.

One branch of cocktail-dom, the aromatic is made when the bitterness of a cocktail is used to balance out a cocktail. Come try these sometimes strong sometimes fruity but always delicious cocktails.


9/6: FIRE
Our most popular class, come learn how we use fire to make drinks ( maybe even learn how to fire one up yourself! )

The granddaddy of them all--whiskey was there at the beginning of the cocktail and has lasted through the entire history. 

Drink our way through history as we start early and go late in the development of Americas favorite drink. 

Not just for Everclear anymore, the punch actually predates the cocktail by more than 300 years. We will talk about old and modern uses of the punch. 

A grab bag of the bartenders' favorite cocktails.
