If you've always wanted to learn the techniques of a master mixologist, this class in San Francisco is your chance to get all the tricks of the trade and have a blast while you're at it!

You will make two delicious craft cocktails with a bartender from Manhattan Zodiac. Your guide will take you step-by-step so you understand the fundamentals of mixology. You'll learn why some drinks are shaken while others are stirred, what ingredients play well with each other and find out the fascinating history of your favorite drinks.

Everyone gets a welcome cocktail on arrival, then you get to work at your own stations like you're creating drinks at a bar. This is a lively class that's as playful as it is informative. Your teacher will help you learn how to balance flavors and perfect recipes, like how to make an old-fashioned or a margarita.

This is the perfect opportunity to plan an experience gift for birthdays or other special occasions. Or just take time out with friends to do something fun and celebratory!

At the end of your time, you will come away with real bartending skills and recipes to try the next time you get together. (Recipe cards of cocktails that you make in your class will be provided.)

Loved this class! The instructor (Yana) was super easy to work with from the start. The class is well organized, informative, and very engaging. We learned so much and plan to book another class with more friends:)
