Event Type

I like to call the 1970s to 1990s the “dark ages” of cocktails. It was a pretty dire time for drinking, but those decades also helped pave the way for the cocktail renaissance we have been experiencing since the early 2000s. In this 1980s class, come learn why every drink in the 80s had an innuendo-filled name and too much sugar. (But don’t worry – the versions of 80s drinks you’ll be making are delicious!)

My online classes combine engaging audio-visual content with informative storytelling with mixing instruction. You’ll learn the history of the cocktails and their ingredients, then get to mix your own drinks and share your experience with others from the comfort of your own home. The class centers around 2 featured cocktails for the decade, but you’ll receive an expanded recipe list with alternatives you can make instead or as well, depending on the contents of your lockdown liquor cabinet and pandemic pantry.

Each session is limited to a small number of signups so we can keep things interactive, just like an in-person Tammy’s Tastings class. But you can have multiple people sharing your computer screen for a single ticket purchase, so feel free to bring your spouse/SO/stranded college kids – pricing is per computer connected, not per person!

“One part history – one part experimentation – two parts fun – with a dash of Angostura. Tammy’s classes are the highlight of our week. In just a few classes our cocktail knowledge has gone from gin & tonic to “the best amaretto sour in the world. “ Anyone who likes cocktails should take the class. Informal and interactive, you forget that it’s an online class and Tammy is an amazing teacher.”
