🎉 Hello Flannery fam and friends! Looking forward to getting shakin’ with you guys on November 6th with some extra special libations! We’ve put together a well rounded class of classics and originals incorporating delicious fall flavors and we can’t wait to share with y’all. Before we get shakin’, here’s a shopping list of booze you will need for class.

We’ve included links to several brands in the shopping list below but feel free to choose your favorites in each category. 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.
