Sindy S.
Another amazing evening learning about cocktails!
Andrea T.
Teacher was great and her delivery and audience engagement was amazing. My only constructive criticism would be to choose 3 cocktails that aren’t as well known but something unique that you’d get at a speakeasy and never be able to make by yourself at home.

The event went very well. We all enjoyed it very much and learned a lot. We will definitely use CourseHorse again. And, we had several guests from other chapters join us for the event, and I bet they will use CourseHorse for their events as well.

The event went great and we had a wonderful time! The drink directions were also easy to follow. The event was also fun because it was relaxed and comfortable, yet organized like a real class. We definitely enjoyed ourselves!
MICHAEL ROSS
Carolyn Montgomery was awesome!! She was engaging, knowledgeable and was very adept at getting everyone in our private group to interact. She was also very good with teaching novices and introducing new ideas that many experienced cocktail makers didn't know about. I would highly recommend her if you're considering a class or using her for a private event.

We had a fun time, enjoyed all three drinks we made, and are excited to make the egg nog recipe that was an added bonus! It was a fun date night with our friends across the states.
Athena S.
I loved this class! Erin was very knowledgeable. She explained a little history behind each drink, showed us how to make the drinks, answered our questions and sent us a follow up email with all the recipes (with a bonus drink recipe too). The drinks were all delicious. I highly recommend this class whether your a beginner (like me) or have been mixing drinks a long time. It was a fun way to spend a Saturday night.

Host / Instructor was phenomenal. Created a fun atmosphere along with demonstrating and sharing her knowledge with the class.
Valerie L.
Erin was fabulous and I cannot wait to take another class with her!
Mackenzie T.
It was great! Erin was fabulous and answered all of our (sometimes very 101 questions). We loved the history she gave and she did a really good job handling us all being in one room, even when it was hard to hear at times. The drinks were amazing and people who don't normally drink cocktails were really surprised how much they liked them.

What a wonderful class! Fun, great pace, and excellent information. The Whiskey Sour recipe alone made it worth it. Looking forward to taking her 201 course.
