    The class was great! The instructor was clearly very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job. The location (i.e., room/space) could have been improved as there was very little room to move around when going up to taste cocktails.

Discover the Best Drink Making Classes in NYC

Drink making refers to the process of preparing various beverages, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. It involves meticulous preparation and familiarity with relevant tools and equipment. Drink making encompasses activities such as mixing cocktails, brewing tea and coffee, creating homemade infusions, fermenting and distilling spirits, brewing beer, and making wine. It involves a combination of artistry, scientific understanding, and skillful execution to produce beverages that showcase creativity and taste delicious. 

Why You Should Learn Drink Making in NYC

There are many reasons why NYC is a great place to learn drink making. First of all, there are many institutions in which aspiring mixologists and drink makers can gain inspiration. It’s home to many of the most iconic bars in the country, including the Old Town Bar and The Campbell. New York is considered the birthplace of modern tea, as it was there that Thomas Sullivan, a tea retailer, invented the tea bag. Aspiring beer makers also have much to seek out in New York. There’s a contemporary push for local hops production in New York, with the Bronx Brewery currently growing hops in community gardens across the boroughs. 

NYC’s vibrant cocktail culture, world-class instructors, and diverse community of professionals provide a stimulating environment in which to hone your skills. From the renowned cocktail bars to the specialty coffee shops, tea houses, and breweries, NYC offers numerous opportunities for hands-on learning and exposure to diverse flavors. The city’s bustling hospitality industry also provides an exciting gateway to career prospects.

It offers a range of different classes, from pasta making to wine tastings, each designed to combine cookery with social gatherings. 

Bitter and Esters offers a class called Brewshop 101: Home Brewing Essentials. This beginner-friendly brewing class offers a comprehensive understanding of beer, its ingredients, and the brewing process. Students will learn the confidence, knowledge, and skills needed to become an efficient home brewer. Students will brew a 5-gallon batch of beer and have the opportunity to taste some homebrew. 

Located in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, Bitter and Esters seeks to make the art of brewing accessible to all. As the city’s first do-it-yourself home brewery and supply shop, Bitter and Esters provides classes, resources, and a store from where to buy all your home-brewing needs. 

Another class that may be of interest is the Barrel Age Your Own Whiskey and Craft Cocktail class put on by Craftsman Ave. In this class, students will copper and create their own oak barrels in which to age spirits. Expert guides will walk participants through the entire process, from assembling the staves and hoops to charring the interior with a propane torch. Alongside these practical skills, students will learn about the history and significance of barrel aging alcohol. 

Craftsman Ave is located in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Their mission is to turn ordinary students into extraordinary craftsmen, including welders, woodworkers, welders, jewelry makers, leather crafters, knife forgers, and stained glass artisans. 

Aspiring drink makers may be interested in the Tour of Europe–Wine and Cheese Pairing class, hosted by Murray’s Cheese.

Virtual Drink Making Classes & Schools

Online classes are here to stay, and they offer both advantages and disadvantages over traditional in-person classes. On the one hand, online classes offer flexibility. With online classes, you have the freedom to attend from anywhere, whether it's the comfort of your own home, a coffee shop, or even while traveling. This eliminates geographical barriers and allows you to pursue education without the constraints of location. Additionally, online classes offer a vast array of options, giving you access to a wide range of subjects and courses from reputable institutions and experts worldwide.

On the other hand, online classes make it difficult to receive hands-on feedback in real time. Students often have to procure their own materials, or pay an extra fee to have them shipped to their house. Additionally, building a sense of community can be more challenging in a virtual setting. In traditional classes, students have the opportunity to interact face-to-face, engage in group activities, and form connections with their peers. Online classes may provide discussion boards or chat features, but it can still be difficult to replicate the camaraderie and personal connections that come with in-person learning. 

There are many options for aspiring drink makers seeking online drink making classes. The Chopping Block Lincoln Square, Chicago's foremost gourmet supplier and educational provider for food and drink enthusiasts, offers an enticing class called Virtual Cocktails: Tequila 101. Led by expert Christophe Bakunas, participants will delve into the world of tequila, exploring its taste and production. This interactive class covers various topics including bar setup, cocktail components, presentation techniques, and bar lingo. Students will leave with the knowledge and skills to craft delicious cocktails like the Last Word, Paper Airplane, and Corpse Reviver. 

The Teaching Table offers an online class on Plant Based Milks as well. Participants in this class will learn the art of making their own plant-based milks using readily available ingredients. Guided by expert instructions, students will acquire the necessary techniques to transform a variety of plants, nuts, and seeds into delicious and nutritious milk alternatives. Topics covered include the benefits and drawbacks of different tools, optimal soaking methods, and valuable insights into ingredient selection. The Teaching Table is committed to providing accessible education on using healthy, local ingredients to create delightful meals and ingredients.
