Class Description


What you'll learn in this mixology class:

In two fun-filled hours you can become a confident bartender, creating delicious and gorgeous cocktails, to the delight of your guests. A master mixologist will walk you through how to stock a basic bar and create classic cocktails and some fun variations:

  • Martini (and a Lavender Lemontini)
  • Margarita (and a spicy variation)
  • Old Fashioned (and a mesquite smoked version)

The instructor will demonstrate each cocktail on the menu, giving you the opportunity to taste them all. Each student will be paired with a partner and have the opportunity to make their two favorites from the list. The class includes a segment on making simple syrup from scratch and utilizing stylish garnishes, from standard olives and lemon twists to a few imaginative extras. You take away an e-booklet on the well stocked bar including recipes for cocktails, and a space for you to note your personal preferences.


  • Please arrive 15 minutes early to check in.
  • Guests will work in groups of two throughout the class by sharing ingredients and equipment, but we are happy to seat you with your booking party if you are with a bigger group.
  • Outside drinks are not allowed.
  • 21+ only.

    I was unable to attend due to an emergency. I tried to reschedule but was under the threshold due to the cancellation policy. The good news, possibly ... seems I may be able to reschedule for another class with a fee of $20. It hasn't been confirmed yet. So, if your offer of $15 for a review is real, then I could apply that $15 toward the rescheduling fee. That would be nice. Please let me know.

    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.

    The class was great. The instructor was very knowledgeable about making drinks. The instructor assisted each student when each person made their own drink. The instructor has a great personality and was an awesome person to be around.

    I found the cocktail class interesting but thought crackers and cheese should have been provided to help with the mixed drinks. I am not a bigger drinks and was a little tipsy leaving the class. The crackers would have eased my stomach. Thanks!
