Holiday Mixology Class – Dec. 10th

 In Virtual Cocktail Classes

old fashioned

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 on Dec. 10th, 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!

For those who want the full experience, here’s what you’ll need. (Full Amazon shopping list at bottom of page!)

*Note: The tools we’ve chosen are the exact tools we’ve used behind the bar for years, and if you take care of them, they’ll last you a lifetime. These tools will give you the best result when used in the manner we’ll teach you! However, if you’ve already got things at home that you’re comfortable using, it is still possible to achieve a great result! If you’re not ready to make the investment, CLICK HERE for a list of alternative tools you probably already have in your kitchen.

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. It’s also good to have a clean towel handy for drying your hands and one laid out on your table to work on.

Pro tip: Have a glass of water handy to cleanse your palette and keep hydrated!
