What you'll learn in this mixology class:

Learn how to make delicious cocktails from a Master Mixologist who knows how important it is to start with the classics- like the Martini and Manhattan, so you can move on to the craft cocktail realm- perhaps a Key West Sunset or Lavender Lemontini.

During this course, important details about liquor, cocktail recipes and mixers pair with fun and creative suggestions for your next, very impressive cocktail gathering. This is a comprehensive course, taught by a career bartender who wants you to know how to master the bar. You'll leave this class having an invaluable mixology education and a hell of a lot of fun.

The class will include a one hour demo with 30 minutes for Q&A.

If the students wish to make one of two of the six cocktails on the course menu, they will need a cocktail shaker, jigger and long spoon, as well as liquors. I will provide this list as before the class as well as a recipe book after the class.

Materials needed if you want to follow along (we recommend you just get ingredients for 2 cocktails though you're welcome to do them all):

For liquors I've listed recommended cost effective varieties, though what you have in your liquor cabinet is fine!

Virtual Class FAQ

What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?
You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?
Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

Carolyn is a lovely teacher. She explained everything clearly and answered questions with patience and excitement. The camera setup/ sound was good as well. I learned a lot in the short time and am inspired to experiment more in my cocktail making.

Class was a lot of fun. Very lively and entertaining instructor. I think she would be great fun in person. It was a little fast doing it virtually because she couldn’t really interact with us and see if we were following along and doing it right or wrong but after the second drink we were feeling no pain anyway and had a great time.

Carolyn was sweet. It was a small class but enjoyed every minute of it. She was very knowledgeable and informed. I look forward to taking another one of her classes as well as seeing what course horse has to offer

Carolyn was outstanding and knew so much about the history of cocktails, not just how to make them!
