It's safe to say learning has never been quite this fun (and delicious)! Throughout the course of an hour and a half, guests will learn a series of cocktail recipes and techniques they'll be excited to show off to all their friends. With the expertise and leadership of a skilled mixologist/ bartender, guests will create 3 different cocktails that represent traditional, modern, and seasonal style drinks. Their experience will begin with a brief overview of cocktail culture, significance, and historical context (with a little comedic relief, of course). From there, guests will be introduced to each of the ingredients and tools they will use to create the perfect cocktail. Once everyone is acquainted, its time to get to work. The bartender will instruct each step of building the perfect cocktail and explain the rationale behind proportions. After all 3 cocktails have been crafted, there will be a comparison between "traditional", "modern", and "seasonal", leaving guests with a better understanding of their preference and palette. This experience is a great segue-way into a fun night out or a fun night in!
Hi, my name is Rob. I am a skilled mixologist/ bartender with over 10 years of industry experience. I have been selected to be a part of multiple cocktail competitions and have successfully designed and executed multiple bar programs. I love talking to people and sharing my passion for cocktail culture. More specifically, I enjoy tailoring each cocktail experience to fit each client's taste buds. Many times clients have expressed interest in learning what it takes to make a great drink, and I think I'd do a great job of teaching the basics.
