We’ll learn how bourbon is made and the folklore of famous distillers. After a bit of tasting, we’ll cover the cocktails to show it off, from the “Old Fashioned” to the ultra-modern – smashes, sours, mules, and punches. You’ll head home with a repertoire of Bourbon know-how for every occasion.
As a whiskey lover, you may already be familiar with the classic Mint Julep, but did you know there are so many more delicious and diverse cocktails that can be made with bourbon? In this class, we will deeply dive into the world of bourbon and explore its rich history and unique characteristics.
First, let’s talk about what makes bourbon different from other types of whiskey. Bourbon must be made in the United States and distilled from at least 51% corn. It also has specific aging requirements, including being aged in charred oak barrels for at least two years. These factors contribute to the distinct flavor profile of bourbon: sweet, smooth, and with notes of caramel and vanilla.
But don’t let the rules and regulations fool you – bourbon is a versatile spirit that can be used in various cocktails. From classic Old Fashioneds to modern twists like a Bourbon Peach Smash, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. In this class, we’ll make and taste some of the most famous bourbon cocktails and learn how to mix them for optimal flavor.
You will expand your cocktail knowledge, impress your friends at your next gathering, and gain a deeper appreciation for one of America’s favorite spirits. So grab your shaker and join us on this journey through the bourbon world!
