Cocktail Club - Gin (Wednesday June 28th)
Gin is a clear liquor that packs a pretty astounding amount of flavor into a small glass. It's a neutral grain spirit distilled with juniper and botanicals that has a predominantly piney flavor, but it doesn't stop there. It's similar to vodka, in that they're both light spirits. But while vodka has no taste, gin is distinctively botanical.
Like the spirit itself, gin cocktails can be just as varied, though many feature similar flavor profiles of citrus fruits, mint, and a touch of sugar. Gin cocktails are often light, refreshing, and a little bit sweet — the perfect drink for summer or, really, any time of year.
We'll make two different gin cocktails - a classic and a spin of the classic. This week we are making cocktails to inspire your next summer party. Class sizes are intimate and hands-on.

Like the Cosmopolitan in the '90s and the Mojito in the '00s, the Negroni has been the trendy tipple of the past decade or so. If you've been to a craft cocktail bar in the past ten years, dollars to donuts, you've seen somebody drinking one.
The Lola / Strawberry Aperol Gin Fizz
You'll need to ask guest bartender why he named it "The Lola". We're sure there's a story there and maybe you can get it out of him. This unique cocktail is a fun cross between a Gin Fizz and a Tom Collins. Perhaps best classified as a "Strawberry Aperol Gin Fizz"
