Get ready to sip your way to bliss! In this Manhattan masterclass on how to make cocktails, you'll become a confident bartender, creating delicious and gorgeous cocktails that will be the delight of any guests who grace your dinner table.

A master mixologist will walk you through how to stock a basic bar and create classic cocktails - you'll learn how to make a martini, cosmopolitan, Manhattan, margarita and more. Along with that, you'll master some fabulous new recipes that will impress the most discerning sippers.

The instructor will demonstrate each cocktail on the extensive menu, giving you the opportunity to taste them all. Each student will then be paired with a partner and have the opportunity to make their two favorites from the list. The class includes a segment on making simple syrup from scratch and utilizing stylish garnishes, from standard olives and lemon twists to a few imaginative extras.

If you enjoy cocktails and are ready to learn how to make the magic happen, this cocktail making class is one of the best things to do in NYC.
You'll take away an e-booklet on the well-stocked bar including recipes for cocktails, and a space for you to note your personal preferences.

Andrew Persaud Sep 2023


Class was fun and easy for beginners. Instructor was professional, clear, and made the class enjoyable. Would highly recommend.

Allyson Alonzo Sep 2023


Carolyn was amazing! She was so kind and outgoing. She was extremely knowledgeable and spoke about common myths and errors when it comes to cocktails. She helped provide ideas to taylor the cocktails to our liking so we could come home and make them for our friends and family. The stations were awesome and it was easy to duplicate what she was doing. I love the fact that she has a guidebook of the class so we didn't have to remember what was being taught, especially because who is going to remember all that after you've been sampling and making drinks for 2 hours?! All the guests were super kind too!

Illini Codilla Jul 2023


Carolyn was extremely knowledgeable about her craft and very very funny too! She made the class very enjoyable and taught us so much more about cocktails. Definitely would recommend her class to friends and we are also very interested in her burrata making class!

I attended this class on my birthday with my boyfriend, and we had an amazing time. The instructor was funny. She answered any questions we had The drinks that she had us make were easy to follow as well. She even brought over her lavender syrup that she had made and everyone in the class enjoyed it. The class will not disappoint. You will have a great time you will meet great people, have plenty of laughs, and have a nice buzz. And to top it off, she will provide you recipes thats if you email her.

The teacher was fun, enjoyable to listen to and made the class easy to follow. My only addition would be to add a different variety of cocktails.

Nancy Kito Jan 2023


The class was great! The instructor explained things clearly and it was the right amount of demonstration to actual hands-on. The teacher was also very knowledgeable, friendly and obviously loved teaching, you could ask any questions. The venue was great, very clean, and the demonstration area was very separate from the actual working bar. Overall a great experience. Would definitely take another course!
