Class Is in Session: Scofflaw's Den Helps Take the Mystery Out of Cocktails

Cocktail blogger/enthusiast/historian, Marshall Fawley III, has launched several new cocktail classes which he'll be teaching at Last Exit this spring and summer. A full schedule of these fun and informative courses can be found at Scofflaw's Den. Some of my favorites in the line-up:

Spirits of Mexico

05/05/12 Celebrate Mexican heritage with a discussion on the national spirits of Mexico, tequila and mezcal. We will discuss, and taste, the differences between tequila and mezcal and learn how to use them in cocktails. We will also learn the importance of quality in these spirits and how important they are to many of the small villages who make artisanal tequila and mezcal. Please note that this class begins at 3:30pm at Last Exit. The cost is $50 per student and limited to only 10 students.

Tiki Lounge

06/24/12 Summer is here and what better way to celebrate than relax with an icy, fruity, boozy tiki drink? This summer when you invite friends and family over for a cook-out and some drinks, throw in a touch of Polynesia by serving the best tiki drinks around! Learn the history of tiki drinks, the tricks to making them and how Tiki became synonymous with Americana. Choose whichever date fits your schedule! Each class begins at 5:30pm at Last Exit. Cost is $50 per student and each class is limited to 10 students.

Punch into Spring

05/19/12 When entertaining at home, having a punch or two for your guests keeps you chatting with them instead of stuck in the kitchen mixing drinks. In this class, learn the history of punch and the basics to punch making. This is not your parents neon green sherbet-topped fruit punch or the Rubbermaid tub of anything goes punch from your college days! This punch is based in traditional cocktail methods and culinary flavors. Class begins at 5:30pm at Last Exit. Cost is $50 per student and limited to 10 students.
