Teacher: Anthony Caporale

What you'll learn in this bartending class:

Are you a working bartender looking to take your technique and product knowledge to the next level? Are you a cocktail aficionado who wants to learn how the pros make drinks? If you want a rock-solid foundation in the history, science, and skills behind professional mixology, this course is for you.

During the first session, you will learn the traditions and production methods behind each major category of alcoholic beverage (vodka, gin, rum, tequila, whiskey, Bourbon, Scotch, beer, and wine), taste through popular brands, and discuss flavor profiles and common uses.

The very hands-on second session will cover mixing techniques for different types of drinks, recipes for classic and modern cocktails, and give you the opportunity to make drinks under the guidance of Anthony Caporale, producer and host of Art of the Drink TV, the leading web cocktail show, and beverage director for Mesa Grill, Bobby Flay's flagship restaurant. He has been involved in the opening of nine major restaurants in his close to 20 years as bar instructor and bar chef.

You will cover:

Session 1. Product Knowledge.
Alcohol 101---history, properties, and production techniques; history, production, popular brands (tastings), and common drinks for vodka, gin, rum, tequila, whiskey, bourbon, and scotch, beer, and wine.

Session 2. Technique.
  • Bar setup;
  • glassware;
  • pouring;
  • mixing techniques: how to correctly build each type of drink;
  • best practices: service speed and working clean;
  • recipes: practice making popular cocktails (straight and rocks; highballs; juice drinks, multi-liquor drinks; martinis; frozen drinks; pousse-cafés; hot drinks; beer and wine cocktails)

Students enrolling in this class MUST attend the first session of the class in order to participate in the rest of the series. If you are unable to attend the first session, please do not enroll.

Note: We serve wine in our classes. It is against our policy for guests to bring in any type of alcoholic beverages.
School Notes:
Please note that a valid ID is required for entry into ICE's building.

Upon arrival to 225 Liberty Street, proceed to the security desk on the 2nd floor located next to Hudson Eats to check in.

If this is your first time visiting ICE, you may want to leave yourself 30 minutes to find your way to our lobby at 225 Liberty Street.

We will begin checking guests in 15 minutes before the class start time. Please note that classes will enjoy the menu at the end of class. While a snack platter is offered in both morning and evening classes, you may want to consider a light snack before joining us for class. Additionally, for those enrolled in a pastry or knife skills class, a meal is not planned so we recommend bringing a snack. Class menus subject to change.

Refund Policy
Two weeks withdrawal notice is required for a refund; but please note a transaction fee will be deducted from the refund for each and every class seat registration that is cancelled by the registrant/student based on the following scale: classes up to $125 will incur a $20 fee, classes in the $126-$350 range will have a $30 fee, classes valued over $351 will incur a $50 fee. When a class is dropped 3-13 days prior to the start date, only school class credit will be issued, and the corresponding transaction fee will be deducted. Rescheduling a class entails a cancellation and, therefore, a transaction fee will still be charged to customers. There are no refunds or school credit issued when fewer than 48 hours notice from the class start date is given. In case of class cancellation, all students will be notified and a full refund will be given.
