As an educator in cocktail history and disciplines I find joy in teaching hands-on and engaging cocktail classes through online platforms, in private clubs, offices, and in people’s homes.
Recently, I was the bar manager at San Francisco’s Bon Voyage!, and previously worked in New York City at Maialino, Barbuto and Dante at Genuine.
PRIVATE COCKTAIL EVENTS
Craving a different way to connect as an office? Looking for a captivating way to raise funds for your non-profit organization? Have a birthday coming up and want to celebrate with your friends? The experience options I offer are great for many occasions. Exciting date nights, corporate events, bicoastal happy hour hangs, enthusing exhausted teachers, social distancing garden parties, weddings, gallery openings, and perhaps to just simply celebrate the weekend and good company!
My CIY (craft it yourself) virtual cocktail classes are designed to help participants understand the techniques of bartending, while making balanced cocktails at home. The personalized cocktail menu for private virtual events are designed to reflect participants' cocktail interests with a focus on using ingredients you most likely have in your home bar and pantry. If you'd enjoy a spirits or wine tasting course, or a class using specific spirits or based around a specific topic, I'd be delighted to work with you in designing this kind of virtual class.
I am also available for social distancing garden parties in the Bay Area. For these in-person events, you will receive a more complex cocktail menu designed around your imbibing preferences. If your desire is for an engaging experience, we can work together on curating a hands-on & educational class/event. You can choose full service bartending, or cocktail stations so you and your guests can learn how to make cocktails. Other engaging participation options include: cocktail design and execution, wine or spirits tasting, food and cocktail pairings, and topic based participatory cocktail history lectures.

Classes are designed to be entertaining, engaging and fun. My hope is that you will walk away from class feeling confident about creating your next cocktail with ease and a better knowledge of the craft of bartending.
Upcoming Virtual Cocktail Classes
Airbnb Experiences: Virtual Cocktail Classes
Each virtual cocktail class menu is specifically designed to guide you in making cocktails using ingredients & tools you likely already have at home. I choose cocktails that are flexible with which spirit is used to make them too, so that you can enjoy cocktails more suited to your palate.
We will be making 2 classic cocktails- an egg white sour called the Clover Club and a honey syrup and lemon cocktail called the Bee's Knees. Both of these cocktails are delicious when made with vodka, gin, tequila, mezcal, rye, scotch or rum.
