With more than two centuries of history behind the cocktail, making them at home or ordering one in a fancy bar can be intimidating. There’s an art to making a great drink, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave it to the pros. We’ll teach you how to be confident with cocktails in our new The Perfect Cocktail class.
The Cutting Edge has tapped into the knowledge of Mixologist Matt Smith from The Knoxville Bartending School and his passion for making cocktails approachable for everyone!
In our class The Perfect Cocktail, you’ll learn the basic techniques of making cocktails, including:
When to shake and when to stir,
How to muddle,
How to use a jigger,
How to strain, and
How to balance flavors in your cocktails.
We’ll also cover what you need in your home bar (it’s not as many bottles as you might think!) as well as essential equipment.
Tapas will be served and Matt will demonstrate how to prepare drinks using the techniques listed above. Must be 21 years or older to attend.
