Give it to me straight up!

Posted by on June 16, 2013

This “We Never, ” which turned out to be a surprise.  We drove to a house with bars on the windows but when we walked around to the back, we opened a door to reveal a spectacular fully-stocked bar.  The guy who gave the class loved what he did and knew his stuff.  He was all about real drinks.  Forget the fu-fu stuff and guessing how much of each ingredient to mix into a drink.  We learned to make drinks with precision and with an appreciation for combining flavors.  The four-hour class was also a walk through alcohol history: pre-prohibition v. post-prohibition drinking, historically wealthy v. poor man drinks, and the increasing loss of the science of drinking.  The 8 of us sitting at the bar each had a hand at making a drink and then of course we all imbibed, passing around each concoction.  What a fun way to spend 4 hours.  Cheers!
