CIY (Craft It Yourself) | Hands-on & Engaging Virtual Cocktail Class
San Francisco, California
CIY (Craft It Yourself) cocktails with Rebecca Pinnell, a seasoned mixologist who is passionate about sharing just how approachable cocktail crafting can be. This class is designed to guide you in crafting cocktails using ingredients & tools you likely already have at home, or can easily pick up from your local grocery and liquor store. Her goal in teaching these classes is for you to walk away with a deeper understanding of bartending techniques & how to make balanced & delicious cocktails in your home. In this 75 minute engaging class, we will be crafting 2 cocktails, making everything at the same time. In addition to learning how to craft cocktails, Rebecca will share cocktail history stories, tips on how to make larger portions of these cocktails for a small gathering, and advice on how to craft other cocktails. After signing up for the class, you will receive a list of tools & ingredients to gather for use at the start of class. You will also receive a zoom link for the event.
Spiced Pear Maple Manhattan
The Manhattan is an all time classic stirred & strong cocktail. For this winter inspired version we will make a fast and easy spiced pear and maple syrup to be paired with sweet vermouth & whiskey, tequila, or rum. If you prefer drinking cocktails that are not so strong or ones that are made with gin or vodka, bring some sparkling water & a lemon to the party (gin or vodka too, if that is your preference). Rebecca will share with you how to create a lighter version of this cocktail in class.
Fresh grapefruit juice & celery are a perfect pair. For this version of the Paloma we will craft a grapefruit & celery syrup to be paired with fresh grapefruit and lime juice, sparkling water & your choice of tequila, rum, gin or vodka.
