The Anne and Stan Clan – Fall Happy Hour!
Welcome to Home Bar Network!
🎉 Hi Anne, Stan and friends! Looking forward to getting shakin’ with you guys on October 23rd at 4:30pm with extra special fall libations! We’ve put together a well rounded class of classic cocktails plus riffs and original recipes 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 all the recommended brands 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.
- 1 750ml bottle of Tanqueray Gin or Bombay Sapphire Gin
- 1 750ml bottle of El Jimador Reposado or Cazadores Reposado
- 1 750ml bottle of Maker’s Mark or Weller Special Reserve or Larceny Bourbon
