Welcome to Home Bar Network!

Hey Karen and Crew! Congrats on the big win! Happy hour is about to begin! Before we get shakin’, we want to make sure everyone is as prepared as possible to make cocktails along with us, so we’ve compiled a shopping list of ingredients and tools you will need for class. You should already have all the booze provided from our friends at Grandaddy Mimm’s.

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.
