March Classes Now Posted!

If you take advantage of the sale, you'll have plenty of fun classes to choose from in 2016!

January 11 - Winter Warmers - An ice cold cocktail is just the ticket on a summer day, but the dead of winter calls for something warmer! In this brand new class you’ll learn all about different styles of hot cocktails, from classic toddies to spiked hot chocolate and apple cider.

February 8 - Drink Like a Monk - Chartreuse, Benedictine, and beer cocktails! Get your monk on.

February 22 - Manhattan Project - In this lab-style class you’ll dive deep into choices around whiskey, vermouth, bitters and ratios, and come away with a recipe for your ideal version of this timeless classic.

March 14 - Drink Me, I'm Irish! - In honor of St Patrick’s Day we’ll be exploring cocktails with ingredients from Ireland (and I don’t mean green beer). You’ll sample Irish Whiskey and understand what makes it different from bourbon or Scotch, and use it in cocktails along with other Irish ingredients.

March 28 - Please Don't Tell - New York City’s PDT (Please Don’t Tell) was one of the groundbreaking bars of the modern craft cocktail movement. In this “Drink the Book” class, we’ll sample a wide variety of cocktails from the PDT Cocktail Book – like the bacon-infused Benton’s Old Fashioned – while talking about the bar’s influence.

Featured Cocktail - Bee's Knees

November's Repeal Day class was a lot of fun, with guest speaker Anne Cahalan sharing some fascinating history about Detroit during Prohibition. The Bee's Knees is a great example of the kinds of drinks that were popular during Prohibition – most often gin-based, and full of strongly flavored ingredients to cover up the taste of substandard "bathtub" booze.

Bee's Knees
2 oz gin
1/4 to 1/2 oz honey syrup (mix 3 parts honey with 1 part hot water)
1/2 oz lemon juice
Garnish: orange wedge
Combine all ingredients in shaker with ice. Shake, strain into cocktail glass. Garnish.
