The Cocktail Sessions

A series of seven cocktail classes focusing on the six “root” cocktail recipes- The Flip, The Old Fashioned, The Daiquiri, The Highball, The Martini, and The Sidecar. Each class will focus on the history, ingredients, evolution, and legacy of a single root cocktail and how both modern and classic cocktails can trace their origins back to these six root recipes.


In each class we will feature:

The history of the week’s root cocktail

Old and new cocktails that relate back to the root recipe

An overview of the ingredients used in each recipe

The tools and techniques used to create each cocktail

A demonstration of how to make each cocktail

A tasting of both the classic root recipe and variations
