April 17 – Badass Bartending: Tequila and Mezcal

Join Jermaine Whitehead for this cocktails class focused on making old-school cocktail ingredients from scratch for your home bar. He’ll show you all the tools and techniques you need to make craft cocktails, as well as a bit of cocktail history and some ideas for classic homemade syrups, sodas and flavoring agents. In this agave-focused class, you’ll learn the basics of Tequila and Mezcal, discussing blanco, reposado, and anejo. You’ll shake, swirl, and sip as you learn to make a tequila and cognac cocktail known as the Boroughs of Tacoma, and a mezcal-spiked Cafe de Olla with coffee and chocolate bitters. Also on the menu: a shaken blanco tequila Chilcano featuring strawberry, homemade ginger syrup, lime, and mint, as well as a spicy pineapple and mezcal Tropicale shaken with an egg white and poured over ice. This class is for guests that are 21 and over.

This is a live, hands-on class held in your kitchen via Zoom. Class is meant to be as interactive as it would be at our table, with the instructor teaching you how to prepare each recipe. Each class ticket is for one kitchen, and we welcome groups on the same screen. To learn more about how class will go visit our FAQ page.
