Tammy’s Tastings is going online. Now you can practice social distancing while enjoying tasty cocktails in an informative and fun interactive environment.

Our online classes combine engaging audio-visual content with informative storytelling and mixing instruction. You’ll receive a list of several recipes so you can pick which drinks you’d like to make in our mix-along time. Every class features a range of cocktails so there are choices for people with minimal home bars and those with fully stocked liquor cabinets. Recipe lists are sent out well in advance so you can incorporate them into your shopping and delivery schedule. Mix what you can, or just listen and learn. You’ll share your experience with others, and learn from what they’re mixing and drinking as well. It’s a fun hour, and as close as we can get to gathering in person.
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!
Gin Cocktails: If there’s an official summer spirit, it’s got to be gin! There’s no other spirit that can match it for ease in a gin & tonic. But it’s so much more than that! In this class we’ll talk a bit about the history and origin of gin, then dive into how to use it in cocktails. We’ll talk about the classic gin cocktails you need to know and modern gin cocktails that you’ll love.

Better with Bubbles: The only thing better than a glass of bubbly is a cocktail made with bubbly! Sparkling wine doesn’t need to be reserved for a special occasion – opening a bottle makes the occasion special all on its own. But if you’re looking for an excuse, I’ve got you covered. Join me for a class full of bubbles, featuring a variety of types and styles of cocktails, but with a special focus on patio-friendly summer spritzes and the like.

Day Drinking: From Corpse Revivers to Brunch Cocktails: We’ve been covering a lot of history in my online classes, and I’ve lost track of the number of time I’ve said “this was usually a morning drink.” We don’t drink many of those any more – except at brunch! Join me for this class to explore the history of day drinking, learn the stories and recipes behind some of your favorite brunch cocktails, and mix up some perfect sips for the middle of a weekend day. From classics like Mimosas and the Bloody Mary to modern creations with creative ingredients, this class will answer the question “What makes a drink a brunch drink?”

Drink Around the World: Sure, we can’t physically travel anywhere right now. But that doesn’t mean you can’t explore the world in your glass! In this class we’ll circle the globe in search of delicious regional spirits and cocktails. Learn the stories behind drinks from Cuba, Argentina, Barbados, Singapore and more. Many of the countries that have regional cocktails are located in warm climates, so this is a great run up to summer drinking as our days start to heat up here.

Farm-to-Glass Cocktails: Did you plant a pandemic-inspired “victory garden”? Or join a CSA so you can make fewer trips to the grocery store? Just enjoying trips to the Farmer’s Market? Come learn how to drink your vegetables (okay, fruit too!) in this online class. We’ll talk about all the ways you can incorporate wonderful local produce – herbs, cucumbers, berries, tomatoes – into cocktails. You’ll learn all about muddling, infusing, and even “shrubs.” Given the June date, the fruit section of this class will focus on strawberries, which should be in season in Michigan, hooray! What weird vegetable will get cocktailized in 2020? Sign up to find out!

Born in the USA: Cocktails as we know them today are fundamentally American creations, although they are now made round the world. In this class, take a cross country trip in your glass as we explore the regional classic cocktails of America, from New Orleans to Kentucky to California and beyond.
