What you'll do

We'll start with a little history about cocktails and the American tradition of mixology, complete with the lore of bitters and why we started making them in the first place. Then we'll make drinks! Guests will pair up and use quality barware to make things both stirred and shaken. Depending upon group interest, we'll make classic cocktails, innovative drinks, or no-proof favorites. We'll finish up with a discussion on how to triumph at your own party and truly enjoy entertaining.

Cindy

In 2014 I founded Portland Bitters Project with the vision to create the best bitters on the market. Now our bitters are enjoyed around the country and internationally to make expressive, delicious cocktails. I teach at two Portland colleges and visit private groups, distilleries and maker's spaces to spread the gospel of high-quality ingredients and time-honored technique. I give my students the confidence and knowledge to stir up a drink at home, experiment with tinctures or just more fully enjoy their food and beverage experiences.

What's included

Food
Light snacks to keep the party going - please let me know of dietary restrictions and I'll do my best to accommodate.
Drinks
You get to drink the cocktails you make! Also water is provided at all times.
Equipment
Drinks-making equipment such as shakers, jiggers, strainers, spoons, and glassware.

More tips
