Become the master of your own home bar with a private cocktail making class for your friends, family, or colleagues! 

In a private cocktail making class, you will learn bar tools (and substitutions!) and key skills, then move on to how to master a few classic cocktails. Special skills you will learn include how (and when) to use egg whites, alcohol infusions best practices, how to choose the appropriate base spirit, and more!

Participants will learn a bit of Mixology history as we build these classic quaffs and review how to stock a bar for making these and other classic cocktails. At the end of the demo, we will do a wild card cocktail - audience suggestions welcome!

The class was great! Erin was fun and we learned some interesting tips. I think it was a hit. I appreciate you working with us to create the event.

The event was a huge hit!
Jillian G.
My husband and I took Erin’s class and had a really great time! Erin was fun and informative, able to answer any question, and was engaging with all the attendees. I have some experience bar tending, my husband has none, and we both were able to follow along with Erin. This was a really fun remote date night for us, the drinks were delicious, and we would love to take another class from Erin in the future!
Donnie N.
Erin was fun and informative. My wife and I enjoyed a perfect date night of making cocktails together and learning these classic recipes with Erin's twist. My wife and I agree that her Old Fashioned is much better than anything we've been getting in many bars, even those that bill themselves as bourbon bars. Even better, Erin's instructions and helpful cocktail cards have allowed us to consistently replicate her great drinks. I would highly recommend that anyone who would like to expand their bar or hosting game take Erin's class. With what I learned, I feel like I'm cameoing with Tom Cruise in Cocktail every time I pick up my shaker now.

Erin is top class. I needed this class for those inside tips and tricks that top bartenders use to elevate my cocktails to greatness. I could never watch enough videos, read recipes or talk to bartenders to get there. Erin showed us the way. The class was engaging and Erin has great energy along with all that knowledge.

I am a novice (to say the least!!) at “Mixology” which is why it was so apropos for me to take this class with Erin. Her class was simply stated, wonderful!! I had all the tools required, as well as the other ingredients recommended by the course instructors, so I awaited Erin’s program, with an healthy anticipation. We “met” online, first, with introductions, and then, off we went!! The lesson was fantastic!! I enjoyed the conversational approach Erin used in instructing us in the best ways of mixology, and, especially, in fashioning the finished products; an Old Fashion, a Whiskey Sour, and a Margarita...all well crafted (by me!!) and delicious!! I very much enjoyed Erin’s lesson, and, I can’t wait to her next courses!! A great way to enjoy “Mixology”!!

Erin was AMAZING! I accidentally signed up for a different class so I didn’t have all the ingredients and she made me feel so comfortable and helped me wing it and use what I did have :) So knowledgeable and friendly!
