The name amaro – plural, amari – refers to a style of Italian bittersweet herbal liqueur. These complex liqueurs can be a bartender’s best friend. They add complexity, fascinating flavors, and structure – even when used in small amounts. In this class you’ll taste several different amari on their own and in cocktails that take advantage of their complex and assertive character.
Your booking includes light snacks (pretzels, nuts). The Last Word is closed during the class, so no food service is available. The class includes a combination of history and stories, technique instruction, and hands-on making of cocktails. Plus sampling, of course! Total consumption is equivalent to around 2 cocktails per person over the 2 hour class.
Please note that we have a restricted table layout and use communal seating. Parties of two will almost always be seated with at least one other party of two. Groups of four or more will usually have their own table. You may request a private table in the “seat with” section of the booking form, and we will attempt to honor your request, but there is no guarantee that one will be available.
