Spring Cocktail Party with the Schusters!
Welcome to Home Bar Network!
Hello Helaine and Friends!
Looking forward to seeing you all for our 2nd cocktail class together, this time celebrating the spring season with fresh bright flavors! We’ve put together a well rounded menu of original cocktail recipes we can’t wait to share with you!
Before we get shakin’, below is a shopping list of booze you will need for class. Home Bar Network will provide all the produce, homemade syrups, fresh squeezed juices, bar tools, syrups, ice, recipe cards, 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. Please call/text if you have any questions. 678-438-1547
