Modern Cocktails are beginning to return to pre-Prohibition era styles while also exploring new techniques and ingredients like craft spirits, specialty bitters and more.
In this class we’ll cover flavors beyond the basic sweet, sour and bitter including complex notes from herbaceous, spiced, spicy and other components plus the basics of flavor theory.

• Accent ingredients, including floats & spritzing
• Barrel aging
• Combing spirit types
• Eggs – foam & flips
• Classic recipes with substitutions of specialty sweeteners and bitters
