Upcoming Classes:

September 7th Scotch Cocktails $30

We all know a scotch purist who insists that there is no other way to enjoy scotch except neat or on the rocks. Scotch is another one of those divine and complex spirits that ranges from light and soft to smoky and intense. In this class we will take the unpopular opinion and use scotch to make some classic cocktails worthy of a leather bound (or velvet!) chair and a cigar.

 

September 14th Low/No alcohol Cocktails $25

Cocktails are fun to mix up, yet many of the recipes are pretty heavy on the alcohol. Sometimes you just want/need to have an extremely refreshing cocktail that isn’t quite so boozy. In this class you will learn how to make a delicious drink when you’re in the mood without the strong liquors.

 

October 5th Call a Chocoholic: Chocolate Cocktails $30

Everyone we know loves chocolate and for good measure. It was once considered only fit for consumption by royalty. The problem with most chocolate cocktails however is they are so sweet they could destroy your taste buds and give you a wicked hangover. This class is designed to do the opposite by using sweet and savory chocolate in subtle ways to enhance a cocktail.

 

October 12th Gourds Gone Wild: Pumpkin cocktails $30

Ok don’t make that face! Yes, we understand everyone and their mother has a pumpkin version of something, and just when we think it can’t get any worse, here comes pumpkin flavored spam!!! Woof! You have to admit that it wouldn’t be fall without pumpkins and of the least offensive ways to have pumpkin is in a cocktail. In this class we will make some show-stopping cocktails that aren’t basic.

 

Nov 2nd Maryland Lost Cocktails $30

“The Southside, Diamondback and the Preakness–Marylanders imbibe history in their native cocktails, from local favorites to little-known classics. Early residents favored fruit brandies and potent punches until the Civil War, when rye whiskey laid claim to local palates. During the golden age of the cocktail, grand hotels like Baltimore’s Belvedere created smooth concoctions such as the Frozen Rye, but the dry days of Prohibition interrupted the good times.”  – Forgotten Maryland Cocktails: a history of drinking in the free state. Using historic recipes, we will explore a few of Maryland’s forgotten cocktails.

 

November 16th Bourbon Cocktails $30

Bourbon purists will tell you that adding even a drop of water will ruin the whiskey’s flavor, but that’s just one of the many myths surrounding the spirit. In fact, there are an array of delicious classic and modern cocktails that call for bourbon. We have all heard of the Manhattan and the old fashioned, so this class is designed to show Bourbons range as a perfect cocktail companion.
