Some call me a cocktail evangelist

I am passionate about learning, educating and throwing a darn good party. Since 2014, I've taught cocktail history and disciplines to bar staffs and to humans curious about cocktails. I've crafted cocktail menus for restaurants and conducted cocktail events for private in-home events, weddings, gala's and office happy hours. Recently, I was the bar manager at San Francisco’s Bon Voyage!, and previously worked at Maialino, Barbuto and Dante at Genuine in New York City.

In 2020 I started my full service cocktail experience company and have since conducted over 500 cocktail events virtually and in-person.

Wow Wow Wow! 5 star review! What a fantastic experience we had with Rebecca. We were celebrating a virtual bachelor party and Rebecca went above and beyond to host the perfect cocktail making class. Energetic, entertaining, extremely knowledgeable and super kind in accommodating a few custom requests on the drinks! Cocktails - 5 stars, Vibes - 5 stars, Knowledge - 5 stars! Highly recommend!

Marc Stevens, Brand & Communications Manager May 2024

Rebecca and her team were extremely knowledgeable, timely, and, most importantly, FUN! From the in-depth breakdown of the science behind mixology to the custom-made cardamom simple syrup and habanero extracts, this was not your average mixology class.

Rebecca accommodated our group, which included non-alcohol-drinking individuals, by making special flavorful options and virgin liqueurs for these attendees so they did not feel left out.

Rebecca's class was amazing. We learned so much about how to make different cocktails and the environment was very relaxed and friendly. She is very patient in explaining different concepts in the cocktail making process. We can't wait to use everything we learned!

Rebecca's class was amazing! I set this up for my wife's milestone birthday celebration. We had a table of seven in our kitchen and Rebecca made it a wonderful, memorable virtual experience for us. We selected the drinks to make with Rebecca's guidance (based on our preferences). She was knowledgeable, personable, and fun - and the drinks were delicious! We can't wait to make them again for family and friends. Thank you, Rebecca and ClassBento We highly recommend her and this class.

Rebecca is wonderful, all around! She did an impressive job of providing the perfect amount of education, while making it so much fun. From start to finish she exceeded all expectations - prompt email responses, flexible & helpful in creating the menu, bar setup on a fairly small table, engagement with our group and follow-up afterwards with some helpful tips to share with our group. I look forward to working with her again in the future!

Andrea Johannessen Dec 2023

Rebecca and her team did an OUTSTANDING job for our employee Holiday Mixology Class. She was well-organized, and the set-up for the event was absolutely stunning. She is an excellent speaker, a wonderful storyteller, and she kept our employees captivated as we made several holiday drinks. I can't recommend Rebecca highly enough - she did an excellent job tailoring her presentation to our employees' skill level, while staying delightfully positive and absolutely charming throughout the event. Her teamed cleaned up quickly and thoroughly, and my employees could not have been more thrilled with the event. Thank you Rebecca and team, I'm looking forward to booking again next year!

Rebecca is a fountain of knowledge and so easy to talk to. It felt like having one of your closest friends hosting a cocktail making class, including knowing your flavor preferences. She was absolutely fantastic and I cannot recommend her enough.

Rebecca was a fantastic and engaging teacher for my mom’s surprise birthday cocktail making class. She was so knowledgeable, patient and most importantly so fun with my family and I heard nothing but great things from all of them on how fun the day and memorable the day was thanks to her!

William Curry-Johnson May 2023

Rebecca was incredibly kind, charming and informative throughout the entire class. My mom and our close family friend have been talking about the cocktails and the experience ever since mothers day. Not only did Rebecca bestow some good practical knowledge about our initial cocktails, but she went the extra mile and sent us a few extra's that involved my mom's favorite liquor. You all should be booking her yesterday

Rebecca was fantastic! She is so personable and knowledgeable, making our experience so fun! I bought this as a gift for my sister, and we look forward to doing another larger session with my cousins. Highly recommend!

Dale Viger Jan 2023

My friends and I had a wonderful with Rebecca. She was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. Everyone enjoyed talking and learning from her. The best part is she customized our drink menu to our likes and dislikes so every drink we tried (all 3 were brand new to us) were fantastic! She asked us about any techniques we wanted to learn (i.e., smoking a drink or making a foam) and incorporated that into the evening. We would HIGHLY recommend any cocktail class with Rebecca and hope to do it again ourselves.

Rebecca was an amazing teacher. We asked her to come for a company social event, and she was very professional and well prepared. She brought everything we needed and she and her assistant Caleb set up. They also generously waited 15 minutes+ for a group that was running late to the event. During the mixology class, Rebecca was extremely knowledgeable and explained even the history of certain cocktails. She asked members of the class for their favorite cocktails and discussed how they are made and why you might add one thing versus another. She was very generous with her knowledge, detailing her recipe for syrups and even saying we could email her after the event for more recipes and information. I highly recommend hiring Rebecca for a social mixer or any other event. Also, she was very non-alcoholic friendly, as I don't drink, and she brought a number of non-alcoholic spirits and mixers to try.

Nishat Hossain Jul 2022

This was an amazing class and I would highly recommend to anyone doing team building or a fun group bonding activity! Rebecca was so excellent throughout the entire process. The cocktails were delicious and the instruction was so informative. We got completely engrossed in the history of cocktail making. I would definitely do this again given the opportunity!

We worked with Rebecca for a team event at Airbnb and we had a lot of fun. Rebecca's energy and passion for misology is unique and she is a great storyteller, hard to find someone like her. Everything was really high quality and we were able to accommodate drinks with and without alcohol. We will definitely consider her for future events!

Shawna Ryan Jun 2022

OMG, Rebecca was so organized, so creative, and so fun! I hired her to do a class for my partner's birthday, and I got a text the next day from a guest that I had set the bar high for future parties. I agree. I highly highly recommend!

Hannah Warren Jun 2022

Rebecca’s class was absolutely fantastic! We booked for a bachelorette party as something fun for the afternoon. The cocktails were easy to make and she explained everything in detail! She played music during the class and kept us engaged and was so wonderful! Will definitely recommend to all my friends and hope to book her again

Abby Watson May 2022
