The Roaring 20’s

Drinking with Daisy and Gatsby

Spend an evening in West Egg and (from the comfort of your living room) as we explore the grit and glamour of Prohibition through F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic, The Great Gatsby. While learning to measure, shake, stir, pour and garnish like a pro, you’ll make two classic drinks – a Gin Rickey and a Mint Julep – straight from its pages.

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S

Cocktails with Holly Golightly

Fight off the mean reds with Holly Golightly as we explore 1940’s NYC through the eyes of Truman Capote’s beguiling gal about town. You’ll learn to measure, shake, stir and garnish like a pro while making a sparkling French 75 and a Manhattan that would rival any found at P.J. Clarke’s or “21”.

LICENSE TO SHAKE (AND STIR)

Drinking with James Bond

Join the Man with the Golden Shaker and break out of your Quantum of Solace for a very special evening of 007-inspired cocktails. Our very own Q will take you through a class For Your Eyes Only where we’ll make a Bond-approved martini and a whiskey sour that will have you feeling like You Only Live Twice.

BEYOND THE DAIQUIRI

Raising a Glass to Ernest Hemingway

Hemingway had some very specific ideas about how a proper drink should be made, and even invented a few classics of his own. We’ll explore Hemingway’s life and literary works while making two of his favourite cocktails – a Classic Daiquiri and a Gambler’s Delight. Learn how to measure, shake, stir and pour like a pro while we pretend we’re in Cuba for a day.

SHAKEN AND STIRRED

Cocktails with Fleming and Heming(way)

Both James Bond and Ernest Hemingway certainly knew their way around a drink, and so will you after this hands-on cocktail class! We’ll teach you all the fundamentals of measuring, shaking, stirring and garnishing while we explore some of their seminal works. You’ll create two delicious, perfectly balanced classic cocktails – a Daiquiri that would do Papa proud and a 007-worthy Vodka Martini.

DRINKING WITH MR. DARCY

Jane-Austen Inspired Cocktails

Spend a romantic evening at the Pemberley Estate as we explore the works of Jane Austen. You’ll learn all the fundamentals to make a Victorian-era riff on a Tom Collins and an orange-wine inspired Whiskey Sour that are sure to delight all your Sense and Sensibilities.

THERE AND BACK AGAIN

Drinks with The Lord of the Rings

Join some of your favourite hobbits (and humans!) on a cocktailing adventure through Middle Earth. We’ll enjoy a fellowship-worthy riff on a French 75 at the Prancing Pony and explore the magic of Rivendell with an elf-approved elixir of our own devising as we teach you to measure, shake, stir and pour like a true heir of Isildur.

Great Expectations

Festive Drinks with Charles Dickens

Travel back to a cozier time, when traveling societies shared drinks around the fire and even debtors could find respite over a bowl of hot gin punch. Charles Dickens may have put his characters through a dizzying array of trials and tribulations, but they all shared his love of a stiff drink. We will guide you through a few of Boz’s own recipes — a whiskey sling from his Sketches, and a warm, port-based drink appropriate for the season — taken straight from his pages.
