Making cocktails can be as simple or as complex as you'd like. For us, the most important part of cocktail making is to first enjoy the art of the craft and then, celebrate your accomplishment with a delicious sip. Our "Crafting Cocktail Hours" are private cocktail classes that are a fun, hands-on journey for both the novice and the expert.
