Bartending was traditionally a man’s world, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been women behind the bar and in the distilleries. We’ll celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8) with a class where you’ll meet some of them through their cocktails, from golden age giants like Ada Coleman (head bartender at the Savoy in London), to wartime Bessie the Bartenders, to modern trendsetters like Audrey Saunders and Ivy Mix.
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 1.5-2 cocktails per person over the 2 hour class.
