To mix the best drinks at home for you, your family and friends, you must think like a good dancer - to do it properly, you need to know how to twist, shake, and effectively remind your guests where to locate their head, shoulders, knees, and toes. Learn the cocktail hokey pokey with Indulge Wine and Spirits Mixology 101 course, a 90-minute course where students learn the basics of mixology and how to make five fantastically fabulous summer cocktails.
Helmed by a cocktail connoisseur and scholar of bar-side psychology, Indulge's Mixology 101 class helps drink buffs to hone their concocting craft while pushing the boundaries of the country's resurging cocktail movement. During the Mixology 101 class, burgeoning bartenders learn the basics of flavor pairing and mixing techniques while mingling and celebratorily chest-bumping with other concoction-crafting enthusiasts. All the while, instructors cover a slew of libation-themed topics including drink ratios, the proper use of bitters, and the difference between stirring and shaking as they spin tales about the cocktail's rich history including its role during the Prohibition era and how it missed it's callback to star in Sideways.
With approachable and functional concepts, students learn the ropes of merging fresh ingredients to craft shindig-worthy cocktails, practicing how to pour, shake, and strain spirits like professionals. Students also study the principles of how alcohol bonds each sweet, sour, and smooth-talking flavor together. As students frequently get caught up in all the fun and might miss an important point or two from the instructor, we'll provide a recipe book for later reference.
