Enjoy the experience of a Gulch Distillers signature cocktail class, designed to enhance the skills of the novice or seasoned home barkeeper. Learn some tips, techniques, and recipes to easily mix beautiful cocktails in your home bar. On the second-to-last Saturday of each month we lead a FREE, one-hour class on individual mixology topics, at high noon (unless noted otherwise). We will occasionally fill a second class time at 1:00, so make sure to read your confirmation email after registering.
While the education is free, cocktails are available for purchase.
What better way to enjoy a long, hot summer evening than with a cold, refreshing Gin and Tonic. Or maybe you prefer that tonic with Vodka. Or Rum. We are going to use this class to look at classic tonic pairings and variations. Learn how to optimize your ideal tonic profile by making your own at home. We will cover recipes, cocktails, and a little history.
After the overwhelming popularity of this class we’ve decided to go back to the basics and address the different methods for building cocktails and specifically focusing on ice. Ice comes in many forms and variations of quality; depending on what you have available, you will need to adjust your technique. Join us for a discussion on when to shake, when to stir, and pro tips on making clear ice.
Use your herbs and garden produce to freshen up cocktail hour! Learn some syrup recipes, garnish techniques, and seasonal cocktails to make the most of those fresh ingredients.
