H. Ehrmann knows his cocktails. He has a deep knowledge of not only ingredients and the process of making fantastic cocktails, but the history and lore that add great context to the art of mixology. Plus he has a wicked sense of humor and really seems to be able to connect with his class in a way that makes really fun and non-stressful. One of the best aspects of the class is watching the other participants get friendlier and louder with each drink made ;) It is a really good idea to plan for a pre-class meal, as the drinks will begin to creep up on you! Thanks for the killer experience, H.!

With H's instruction and trade secrets in the art of cocktail making, I made some of the most delicious drinks I've had in my life! Whether you like it shaken or stirred, for sure join in on his class to make drinks that many bartenders don't even know how to make properly. Extra points for getting to play with fire. The night was certainly one to remember (or not remember).

If you can get a good group together, this experience is a blast. H is incredibly passionate about his trade and is able to take the complexity of mixology and put it in layman's terms so that even the least experienced individuals will be concocting awesome drinks by the end of the night.
