Bitter Love: Amaro Cocktails from Classic to Contemporary

March 28, 2024 | 5–7:30 p.m.

Amaro: How is it that something so darned bitter can be so mellow and magnanimous? Can it be that what we use to settle our overstuffed tum-tums and overworked minds can also give us a little something to crush on? In this class we’ll begin to piece together a guidebook to the boggling array of Italian, European, and now even New World versions of this no-two-are-the-same herbal “digestivo” that has become the new sweetheart of the spirit and mixology world. We’ll experiment with tried-and-true drink recipes and try on a few new styles to expand upon the usefulness of this bittersweet cocktail pantry staple for when you’re feeling crafty, not queasy.

A Celebration of Bourbon and Cocktails from the New South

April 25, 2024 | 5–7:30 p.m.

You may not think there’s a horse in this race besides the Mint Julep, but you may change your bet after this class on the signature Kentucky (and beyond) tipple. We’ll learn how bourbon is made and the folklore of famous distillers. After a little tasting, we’ll cover the cocktails to show it off, from the “Old Fashioned” to the ultra-modern—smashes, sours, mules, and punches. You’ll head home with a full repertoire of Bourbon know-how for every occasion.
