The Core of Mixology
(formerly Mixology 101*)
The tools, terminology and techniques behind
a good majority of modern cocktails.
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 listed on another Eventbrite page as Mixology 101. A combination of our editorial error and Eventbrite policies measn we had to create this other page while the old one is stil live. Please use this page to place your order so we can eventually shut that one down. )
