Event Type

It’s cherry season in Michigan! This class will talk about the many ways to incorporate cherries in cocktails. We’ll explore spirits & liqueurs like Cheery Heering, Maraschino, and Kirsch. We’ll discover recipes that use fresh cherries directly, or infuse them for later. You’ll also get our recipe for making your own brandied cherries you can use to garnish your cocktails for months to come!

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.
