Event Type

Mardi Gras is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate than a deep dive into the the favorite cocktail of New Orleans (and of Tammy). Many have argued that the Sazerac was America’s first cocktail, and while that’s probably not true, it’s certainly one of its finest. In this lab style class we’ll explore the individual components of the drink – rye whiskey, absinthe/Herbsaint, and Peychaud’s bitters – along the path to participants developing their own perfect Sazerac.

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 90-120 minute class.
