Birthday Virtual Cocktail Class w/ Home Bar Network!
Welcome to Home Bar Network!
Hey y’all! Happy hour is about to begin! Before we get shakin’, we want to make sure everyone is as prepared as possible to make cocktails with us on June 21st at 8pm, so we’ve compiled a shopping list of ingredients and tools you will need for class. Don’t worry, if you prefer to watch and not mix along with us, that’s fine too!
Setting up your workstation:
Before we start the class, make sure that you have a clean area to work in and make sure all your cocktail ingredients and tools are within reach. Please have a small cutting board, knife, and ice within reach as well. **Please make sure to have plenty of ice ready to go and one large lime already juiced.
Pro tip: Have a glass of water handy to cleanse your palette and keep hydrated!
Feel free to buy a full sized bottle or airplane bottles of the following. Please note: It may be more cost effective to buy a 375ml or 750ml.
- Reposado Tequila (We recommend El Jimador, Don Julio and Espolon, but feel free to choose your favorite)
- Añejo Tequila (We recommend Herradura, Don Julio, or Camarena, but feel free to choose your favorite)
- 1 bottle of orange bitters (Angostura, Reagan’s, Hella, Fee Bros. — all are fine)
- 3 large limes (Please juice one lime right before class. The other two will be used for garnishes)
- Light Agave syrup (You can find this at most grocery stores by the sugar and sweeteners)
- Sea salt (we recommend pink Himalayan salt)
TOOLS – If you don’t already have bar tools, we’ve added amazon links to the professional tools we’ve used behind the bar for years (Full Amazon shopping list at bottom of page!)
