“We recently booked a Zoom cocktail class with FLW for a group of eight of our friends. Marlene taught us in a really lively and accessible manner, perfect for our range of experience. The ingredients were simple to procure and we were able to use tools that we had around the house. We made two delicious cocktails, and the class was sprinkled with fun literary facts throughout. We had a great night, and have made the cocktails again since! Highly recommend a class for a fun night in!”


“My team thoroughly enjoyed Marlene’s virtual cocktail lesson and it really brought us together in a fun and festive way, even though we couldn’t be physically in the same room. Everyone was so impressed with Marlene’s deep knowledge of cocktail-making and literature, and the way she led the session. The (virtual) event was a big hit, months later we still talk about it.”
