Discover the Best Drink Making Classes Online

Drink making encompasses the art and craft of preparing a diverse array of beverages, ranging from alcoholic cocktails to non-alcoholic beverages. It involves the combination of ingredients, precise measurements, and various techniques to create well-flavored and balanced drinks. Drink making extends beyond mixing cocktails, and includes brewing tea, serving coffee, home distilling, brewing beer, and wine making. Whether it’s the meticulous process of creating a perfectly balanced cocktail, the delicate infusion of flavors in a cup of tea, or the careful selection of beans and brewing methods for a great cup of coffee, drink making is a complex and enjoyable practice that celebrates creativity and craftsmanship. 

Why You Should Learn Drink Making Online

There are many reasons why learning drink making online is beneficial. For example, developing drink making skills can open up career opportunities in the hospitality industry. Whether it’s becoming a bartender, barista, tea sommelier, or working in beverage management, drink making skills can be valuable assets that enhance employability. Having drink making skills also allows you to impress friends, family, and guests with your ability to create delicious and visually appealing beverages. 

Learning drink making online can be particularly convenient and accessible. With a vast array of tutorials, courses, and demonstrations available, you can explore different aspects of mixology, coffee brewing, tea preparation and more all from the comfort of your own home and kitchen. You can use ingredients and tools that you’re comfortable with as you follow along with the instructors. 

Virtual Drink Making Classes 

There are pros and cons to learning drink making virtually. With an online class, you can skip the commute and learn right from the comfort of your own home and kitchen. Some classes will even ship materials to you in advance, so you don’t have to spend time picking up drinks and drink paraphernalia. However, virtual classes are often missing the immediate feedback (especially taste-based feedback) that in-person classes provide. It can also be more difficult, though not impossible, to form a community in a virtual setting.

If you’re interested in online drink making classes, you have several options. The San Francisco Wine School offers a class called Coffees, Teas, and Bottle Waters of the World. In this class, students will learn the growing area, history, and cultivation techniques of both coffee and tea. It will also cover how to understand the mineral composition of bottled water from around the world. Students will also get a look into the beverage industry itself, including current trends in consumer habits. The San Francisco Wine School is the largest wine school in the U.S., offering beverage education to people of all skill levels. 

Aspiring drink makers may also be interested in Virtual Cocktails: Tequila 101, hosted by The Chopping Block Lincoln Square. In this class, students will learn about the taste and production of tequila from expert Christophe Bakunas. Some of the topics covered include how to set up a bar, cocktail components, presentation, bar lingo, and more. Students will leave knowing how to make the following cocktails: Last Word, Paper Airplane, Corpse Reviver. The Chopping Block Lincoln Square is Chicago’s foremost gourmet supplier and educational provider, with classes on many aspects of food and drink making. 

BLVD. Kitchen offers a course called It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere. In this class, Chef Darryl guides students through unique custom cocktails on alternate Saturdays at 5PM Pacific time.

Students will learn about the history of drink making, and learn how to make bespoke ingredients for their at-home bar cart or drink cabinet. The Chicago Botanic Garden sports one of the largest memberships of any U.S. botanical garden, and provides classes on anything plant-related. 

Finally, the New York Botanical Garden offers a Mystery Tea Tasting - Online class. In this class, herbalist Geraldine Lavin will send each participant a mystery herb and brewing instructions. The instructor will walk students through how to brew and taste the tea, and at the end of the session will reveal the identity of the mystery herb. The New York Botanical Garden is one of the most prominent cultural institutions in the world, with classes on a variety of topics—all plant and herb related.

Online vs. In-Person Drink Making Classes

When it comes to drink making classes, online and in-person options offer distinct experiences that individuals should consider when making a choice. Online classes provide the convenience of learning from anywhere with an internet connection. However, they may lack the immediate feedback and hands-on guidance that in-person classes offer. In contrast, in-person classes provide a more immersive learning environment, where students can interact with instructors and fellow participants in real-time, receive immediate feedback, and have access to physical tools and equipment. When choosing a class, individuals should consider their preferred style of learning, the level of interaction they desire, and their access to resources. Additionally, factors such as scheduling flexibility, cost, and the instructor's expertise should also be taken into account.

Can I Learn Drink Making for Free Online?

Yes, it is possible to learn drink making for free online. There are many resources available on the internet, such as websites, blogs, YouTube channels, and more. These resources often provide step-by-step instructions, videos, and even demonstrations by professional mixologists. While these free resources may not provide the same level of structured learning as formal paid classes, they can still be valuable for individuals looking to learn basic drink making.
