What you'll do
This class is all about bar technique! Have you ever wondered how your favorite cocktail bar mixes up your drink? How they choose the spirits? How they balance the flavors? Then you will love this class! Our lead mixologist, Dan Rek will walk you through the basics of stirring, shaking, straining, double straining and much more. Dan will also break down the basics of choosing and mixing spirits, mixers, making syrups, infusions, batching cocktails, tasting and much more. If you are looking for a real-time look into the day to day of bar operations this course is for you! In addition to learning a bunch about making cocktails, Dan will also make you cocktails to sample and our resident Chef and owner, John Brennan has snacks ready to pair! This is a fun experience to get a deeper look into the craft cocktail industry.
You will be tasting craft cocktails and have snacks made to pair with them.
Hi, I'm Dan! I am the resident cocktail geek and bar manager at Elm City Social in New Haven, CT. Here at Elm City Social, I've been mixing, stirring & shaking up tasty and unique cocktails since we opened four years ago! I am also the Vice President of the New Haven's chapter of the Bartenders Guild, regularly host educational courses on spirits, cocktails, the history of both and have placed in several national cocktail competitions including the Woodford Reserve Manhattan Challenge. Lucky for you we are in a city full of rich history, so feel free to ask questions and enjoy the ride!
