Tammy’s Tastings

Online Classes

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

One part history – one part experimentation – two parts fun – with a dash of Angostura. Tammy’s classes are the highlight of our week. 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.”    
— Elizabeth & Alex

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!

“Tammy’s classes are one of the few things that I’ve really enjoyed in these months of COVID. They are excellently prepared, entertaining and thoughtful – and a ton of fun!”   
— Renee

“Class was like sitting at the bar and learning about what you’re drinking from the bartender and sharing with others along the bar. Great fun!”   
— Trish

“One fun aspect of these online classes is that we’re not all using the same ingredients (and sometimes have to try creative substitutes!), which lets us discuss the differences between our variations.”   
— Heather

Current Classes:

Cider Season: From freshly pressed sweet cider, to bubbly hard cider, to apple jack and apple brandy, the humble apple has a long cocktail history which we’ll explore in this oh-so-seasonal class. BYO-donuts.

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.

Zero-Proof Cocktails: Whether you call them mocktails or zero-proof cocktails, every home bartender should have a non-alcoholic drink or two at the ready. Packed with flavor, mocktails can be every bit as interesting as their alcoholic counterparts, and offer a delicious alternative for those who can’t or don’t want to drink.

Rye Cocktails: Rye whiskey once reigned supreme – especially on the East coast of the US – but over time, Bourbon came to dominate. No longer the forgotten whiskey, rye has made a well-deserved comeback. This class will talk about how that happened, and explore cocktails that make the most of its dry and spicy character.

Flips, Fizzes, Sours & Nogs: One of the earliest known mixed drinks recipes was for a mixture of rum, ale, and eggs, heated with a hot poker. We won’t be making that. But many classic cocktail recipes call for the addition of an egg white or even a whole egg. While this might seem odd at first, you’ll be surprised by the delicious difference it makes!

Vodka Cocktails: Love it or hate it, vodka is the bestselling spirit in the world, and this class will take a look at how that came to be. We’ll explore a variety of cocktails that find ways to take advantage of vodka’s neutrality, including creative techniques like infusion and fat-washing.

Fall Cocktails: When I think of fall, I think about apple cider, pumpkin pie, a warming shot of whiskey, and the smell of burning leaves on the wind. In this autumn-themed cocktail class you’ll discover cocktails that take their inspiration from the season.

Mezcal Cocktails: Mezcal has a bad-boy reputation, in no small part thanks to the trend started in the 1940’s of putting a worm in the bottom of the bottle. But today’s mezcals are sophisticated, well-crafted and varied spirits. Its smoky agave character is definitely divisive, and mezcal haters abound, but people who love mezcal really love mezcal, and this class is for you! Come explore Tammy’s favorite spirit!

“I really loved the drinks I made! It’s also fun to be in a class with people in Europe.”
   — Peggy

“A combination of great new tips and recipes, but some fascinating history. What a fun time!”   
— Renee
“Tammy uses the online format nicely, blending informative storytelling with mixing instruction. The enjoyable presentations of the history behind the cocktails and their ingredients is often illuminating, and then the current tastes are experienced and shared with others online from the comfort of your own home.”   
— Evan
“This class was super fun and I’m not just saying that because now we’re snockered. I learned much more than I expected to. If you’re a sucker for cultural history of any kind and you like drinks, this is a must-do.”   
— Cecilia & Corwin
“Tammy has a deep knowledge of cocktail mixing and “lore” that she dips into to make her classes practical, yummy, and intriguing. Just as important, they are lighthearted and fun! Guaranteed to be a boatload more entertaining than your other Zoom meetings during the lockdown!” 
 — Danny & Chris
