Here's what's up: This year, you've decided to amp up your liquor cabinet and finally impress friends with a signature cocktail you've created. There's only one problem, which is you have no idea what you're doing! In this hands-on class, you'll be playing around with four different liquors (whiskey, tequila, gin, and vodka) and a bunch of hand-crafted mixers and bitters to create something delicious. We'll walk you through understanding the art + science of mixology in its most basic form: including taste, exploring flavour pairings, dilution, temperature, mixing, and serving. By the end of class, you'll have the liquid confidence to go forth with Julia Child-like conviction and be an at-home mixologist! ****We're not about putting baby in a corner: In this class you won't be forced to mix basic drinks that you may or may not be interested in. Instead, you'll be the master of your domain and make something YOU love with your own two hands.**** Whether it's whiskey or tequila. vodka or gin, let's make something delicious in 2020! Come shake with us in what WGN's SEE TV calls one of "Chicago's Hidden Gems!"
Hey, y’all! In June 2014 I won a national cocktail competition through Slow Food USA, earning me a position as a delegate to Slow Food International’s biannual Terra Madre conference, considered the Olympics of Food. I’ve taken courses from some of the best mixologists in the world at Sala Mixology in Italy on topics of dilution and temperature, Mezcal and Tequila, botanicals, and molecular mixology. I'm have my WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) Level 2 Award with Distinction in Spirits and working on Level 3! In addition to media appearances (promotional videos for Jack Daniels & CB2, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Reader, WGN-TV's SEE Chicago, which named HOLLOW LEG a "hidden gem of Chicago,"), I have the pleasure of consulting at institutions worldwide, and truly love doing what I do!
