How to Build a Drink ... Old School

w/ Instructor Chas Malody

This first class will be a general introduction to drinking, including how to mix a drink properly and introducing the idea of building around a specific liquor, using the Classic Era as a modeling ground. Most classic drinks were modeled on Gin - given the Martini-ization of the past 10 years, it will be a familiar liquor to begin with. This class will show us how the original flavor profiles were much more complex and drier. Also, how basic pairings of flavors can be enhanced. This will provide a good opportunity to introduce a number of products that were core to Classic drinking but aren't used much today at all. Free.
