DIY Home Bar: A Hands-On Cocktail Workshop with April Wachtel of Swig + Swallow
Do you want to build your home spirits collection but don't know where to start? Want to wow your guests with your creative cocktail creations? Want to get your home bar up and running without spending a fortune? DIY Home Bar with NYC-based April Wachtel is an introductory crash course that will teach you everything you need to know to start making both classic and original cocktails at home. We will discuss cocktail history, tools & techniques, and how to build a smart and diverse spirits collection without breaking the bank. Most importantly, we will make (and drink!) a variety of cocktails in class as we discuss methods and ratios for proper balance. Finally, we'll send you home with 10 classic recipes and the resources to have you making beautiful cocktails in no time, and on any budget. April teaches cocktail classes at Astor Center and The Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, and is the founder and principal educator at Swig + Swallow. Please note that antipasti and hors d'oeuvres will be served at this class - not a full dinner.
The Main Course is new this week with host Alexes McLaughlin in studio with April Wachtel.
