Quality cocktails and the quiet comfort of speakeasies have undergone an overdue Renaissance recently. While there is a lot to enjoy about simply drinking Sazeracs and Negronis, develop a fuller appreciation for what you’re tasting during an evening with Brian Quinn — an event producer and bartender hailing from both the underground supper club and cocktail worlds.

You’ll sample a range of popular (and potent) Prohibition Era cocktails while Brian shows you the tools and tricks that go into putting them together. While every sip is rich in complexities, classic cocktails aren’t actually as complicated as you might think. Take a crack at it with Brian after he gives you a rundown of the ratios behind the recipes and how different base spirits work in drinks. And after learning how the classics are crafted, you might just be inspired to make up a cocktail of your own.

The minimum number of bookings for this SideTour to take place is 4 spots.
