Courses Taught

Dazzling Summer Cocktails

It’s time to mix drinks to enjoy on your patio or front porch—that means cool, refreshing cocktails made with seasonal ingredients and paired with a splash of sunshine. This class will teach you the basics of cocktail making for the home bar, including equipment selection, selecting and balancing ingredients, and basic mixing techniques. We’ll create (and sample!) several summer cocktails together, and you’ll leave with recipes and the confidence to impress your friends with your new mixology skills! Students must be 21 or older; picture ID required. Please eat before coming to class. A $15 materials fee is due to instructor in class.
