About the Event

Join Rebecca Pinnell as she teaches a virtual cocktail class aimed to help you create cocktails in your home with depth and balance. Added below is a “shopping” list detailing ingredients and tools that you can gather to have ready at the start of class. We will be making the cocktails step by step, at the same time together. This virtual class has been designed to be engaging, entertaining, and full of tips on how to continue to make delicious cocktails in your home. 

To celebrate cocktails and fall, Rebecca will guide us through crafting a pomegranate ‘appletini’ and hot toddy. For the pomegranate ‘appletini’ we will make a green apple syrup to pair with the bright tartness of pomegranate juice (which can be found near the kombuchas in the refrigerated section at the grocery store). This sour will be delicious when made with vodka, gin, white rum, blanco tequila. For the hot toddy Rebecca recommends using cloves and star anise to bring some beautiful warming spices to this cocktail, and has offered other spice suggestions below. We will make a larger portion of this perfect cool weather cocktail for you to enjoy after class. The hot toddy will be delicious when made with bourbon, rye, brandy, blended scotch, aged rum or reposado tequila. 

Rebecca Pinnell is a cocktail evangelist and has taught over 100 cocktail classes since shelter in place in March. Recently, she was the bar manager at San Francisco’s Bon Voyage!, and previously worked in New York at Dante. You can visit her website at rebeccapinnell.com
