Join Mixologist Stefan Gitschner of Twisted Spoon Cocktail Co. in a master class on cocktail classics, basic bar tending techniques and using local and wild ingredients you can use to make cocktails at home!

He will be shaking things up and adding a “Twist” on cocktail classics using locally sourced ingredients. Stefan will also teach you the basics of bar tending, garnishing techniques and bar terminology!

For this SIP Series virtual workshop, Stefan shows you how to make a classic Margarita, his very own ‘Twisted’ Swizzle and a Classic Gin Fizz (vegan version) with a Twist…

Grab your shakers and round up these ingredients and tools. Don’t worry if you do not have all the tools, you can use other household items to make these tasty libations.

Tools Needed: *Many of these can be purchased at The Chef’s Shop

  • Metal Shaker (Boston Shaker, if you don’t have a shaker you can use a ball jar)
