Embrace the Smoke - Demystifying Mezcal
Brooklyn, NY, USA
It's Friday night, summertime is around the corner, and it's time to unwind from a long week of sitting in front of your computer with a nice glass of the elixir of Oaxaca. So what better way to escape the grind and get your weekend started right than by embracing the smoke and having a little mezcal. In this class, award-winning bartender and National Brand Ambassador, Justin Noel of Sweetwater Social and Goldbar, will walk you through what Mezcal is, how it's made, and how to use it to craft cocktail bar quality drinks from your kitchen or backyard (and if the weather is right maybe Justin will do the class from his backyard as well). This class will be an hour-long, fun, engaging, and informative experience that doesn't even require you to put your pants on. Justin will show you how to craft three cocktails using tools you already have in your kitchen. So don't sweat about the equipment and just embrace the smoke. Tune in and learn to craft three tasty tipples.
