What you'll do

Join me and have a blast as we use fresh, simple ingredients to make (and of course, drink!) delicious cocktails at home.

This experience is GREAT FOR GROUPS & TEAM BUILDING
(feel free to request a specific date & time).

First things first…a great cocktail can be (and usually, should be) made with as few as three or four ingredients. The most common household items that will yield a wide array of choices are: citrus juice (from lemons or limes) and sugar (white, raw, maple syrup, agave nectar, honey etc). With even just one from each of these categories, you’ll be sitting pretty.

For spirits, we’ll be drinking something fabulous whether we’re reaching for gin, rum, tequila, vodka, aquavit, whiskey…the list goes on.

First, you will be guided through the history of bartending and cocktails. Then we'll discuss a few key techniques for making killer cocktails at home!

We will dive into the finer details of ice, dilution, citrus, bitters, bar tool etiquette etc.

We’ll shake cocktails, we’ll stir cocktails, we’ll laugh, we’ll drink, we’ll become friends.

We'll socialize — regardless of distance.

What to bring

Hey!

My name is Simeon. I am the founder of Equal Parts Cocktail Company. We specialize in creating guest-driven drinking experiences.

Now, they're online!

Over the past nine years, I have spent countless hours studying and honing my craft with other bartenders from all over the country as a member of the United States Bartenders Guild.

For years, I have absolutely loved taking care of others through cocktails, it is my joy, my passion, and the core value of my business. To continue along this journey, the time has come to embrace the ‘virtual venue’.

My bar has been converted into a professionally lit, camera-ready studio bar looking to guide guests along their home bartending endeavors.


Sincerely, your bartender Simeon.

We really enjoyed Simeon's class as a surprise birthday get-together for my friend. We'd all forgotten what a well made cocktail tasted like. Simeon was very knowledgeable and great fun.

Just a wonderful experience overall! It was so much fun to make craft cocktails and Simeon was very knowledge on all things cocktails. He was great at answering questions and explaining how to make the cocktails. Our cocktails have definitely been elevated and taste SO much better now!! I HIGHLY recommend this class and will be sharing it with my family/friends to sign up as well. :)

Simeon provided an excellent pandemic-friendly activity that was sincerely even better than I expected. While we do make our own cocktails, this helped us finesse the details and make them really enjoyable with just a little effort. I strongly recommend this experience, especially if you're ready to upgrade from the same old Jack and coke-type drinks to something fun.

We did an event with Simeon for my mothers birthday and everyone had a great time. Simeon was both very informative and also a lot of fun.

Simeon’s class was a great virtual team outing! Loved the mix of history and how-to and loved that everyone was able to participate and customize cocktails to their own taste. Highly recommend!
