Want to make great cocktails? Learn from a pro in this hands-on experience - everything from balancing ingredients to how to measure, and whether to shake or stir and why. You'll even learn to pair your cocktails with food! We'll mix up a few a standard cocktails, then let you craft your own from an array of fruit, juices, mixers, and even spices. Taste your cocktail (and your neighbor's cocktail), fiddle with ingredients, taste cocktails, etc., etc., and ultimately Uber home.
Bar bites will of course be served, and each couple will take home their own professional quality Boston Shaker
