Don & Marcela’s Neighborhood Cocktail Party!
Welcome to Home Bar Network!
Hello Aldridge Family & Friends!
Looking forward to hosting a delicious cocktail class for y’all October 21st! We’ve put together a well rounded seasonal menu of classic cocktails and techniques plus variations and original recipes we can’t wait to share with you!
Before we get shakin’, below is a shopping list of booze you will need for class. Home Bar Network will provide all the produce, mixers, bar tools, syrups, ice, recipe cards, etc. We provide everything we need for class except the booze.
We’ve included links to several brands in the shopping list below. We highly recommend shopping at Total Wine Alpharetta as we know for sure they carry everything below at a great price. Although, most larger liquor stores should carry all these bottles as well. Please call/text if you have any questions. 678-438-1547
