REBECCA PINNELL

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!

VIRTUAL CLASSES:

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.

IN-PERSON EVENTS:

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. 

Click the link below, let's make a cocktail or two... or five together. 

 

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.

In this 75 minute engaging class, we will be crafting 2 cocktails, making all syrups & cocktails at the same time. There is time at the start of class for introductions and to discuss the tools and ingredients lists and possible substitutions. Throughout and at the end of the class there is time allotted for Q&A about all things bar, spirits, and cocktails.

'How Do You Like Them Apples?' Old Fashioned will be crafted under the influence of apple, plum, ginger and a dash of vinegar.

 

Spice in the Coconut is a tart and creamy cocktail with subtle notes of chili. This cocktail can be made with or with out egg whites or aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas).

 

Both cocktails taste great if crafted with: bourbon, rye, Japanese whisky, aged rum or reposado/anejo tequila.

 

Alcohol-free versions of these cocktails will also be discussed.
