Liquid Confidence: Brandy + Grappa Cocktails

Rhine Hall’s fruit brandies and grappas are used by experienced bartenders in Chicago and beyond to create unique and delicious cocktails. This class is for all of us who aren’t master mixologists but want to make great drinks like the pros. Rhine Hall’s spirits are the perfect palette for exploring the art of creating a delicious drink.  Spend an evening learning how to mix Rhine Hall spirits with bitters and mixers, explore flavor pairings to create your own signature drink, and leave with the knowledge and confidence to make balanced cocktails at home for you and your friends. (Class runs 1.5 - 2 hours.)
