Kimball Friends & Fam Cocktail Class Nov 12th!

 In Virtual Cocktail Classes

Welcome to Home Bar Network!

🎉 Hi Katie, friends and fam! Looking forward to getting shakin’ with you guys on November 12th! We’ve put together a well rounded class of classics and original recipes 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. Home Bar Network will provide all the non-alcohol items including fruit, fresh juices, produce, bar tools, homemade syrups, clear ice, 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.
