(Greystone Mansion Speakeasy, Beverly Hills)
Bitters, Liqueurs and Cocktail Basics
$95 {includes ingredients, supplies and cocktails}

In this artisanal cocktail lover's dream class, we'll dig into our apothecary's cabinet (bitter herbs, flowers, roots, etc), mixing and manifesting the perfect combination for your imbibing pleasure. We'll go into the history behind bitters making, as well as some common and not-so-common ingredients that make up both traditional and new essences. Upon completion, you'll have created your own, unique bitters formula to take home, and incorporated it into a personalized, signature cocktail.

We'll then use pure grain spirits to make our own unique liqueur infusions including a citrus flavor bar (orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit). Triple Sec will forever be banned from your liquor cabinet after this class! 

We will then be guided through the making of a prohibition-era cocktail. The fruits of our labor will be played out by enjoying cocktails together with a selection of artisanal cocktail snacks.
