Metro Demonstration Course: Introduction to Classic Cocktails

July 18, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


The ingredients and equipment needed to make an interesting twist on the classic Blood and Sand cocktail.On Wednesday, July 18, 2017 I will be teaching a class for Metro Continuing Education called Introduction to Classic Cocktails.  Here’s the corny course description we wrote for the Metro catalogue:

The classic cocktail revival is in full swing in Edmonton. Catch the trend and learn about the history and ingredients of classic cocktails, as well as techniques for mixing like a pro. Develop an appreciation for what goes into a well-crafted libation, master old standbys like the sidecar and Manhattan and build a foundation for developing your own recipes and signature drinks. Demonstration course.

The plan is to spend roughly the first hour discussing the most important ingredients in classics cocktails, from the noble liquors like rye and cognac, to liqueurs and vermouth, to bitters, egg whites, and citrus.  Then we’ll delve into equipment and techniques.  Shaking or stirring a drink with ice seems ridiculously simple, but the nuances here are what really set professionally-made cocktails apart from their homemade counterparts.  Finally I want to talk about the powerful, simple ratios at the core of some of the most famous cocktails, and how you can use these ratios to develop your own unique repertoire.

So excited for this class!   You can register here!
