Save a Spot at Glorietta’s Craft Cocktail Classes


Back by popular demand, Glorietta’s cocktail classes are returning for the summer. The format is slightly altered for the summertime. In this round, classes will take place on Sunday afternoons before the restaurant opens, and will feature a little more hands-on action! Another addition: snacks! Think finger foods for tidy sustenance during your cocktail course.glorietta

When selecting the focus of the summer season classes, the Glorietta team wanted to delve deeper into bartending techniques for the at-home connoisseur. It’s safe to say, the folks behind the bar at Glorietta exercise some pretty stellar techniques in their concoctions. Well, they’re willing to pass along that skill set to attendees, teaching not only the techniques, but the reason why they use it in specific applications. For example, why is a cocktail shaken or stirred? In addition, some of the season’s classes will highlight a couple of the crew’s favorite spirits.

Summer schedule:

  • May 12: technique class (shaking, stirring and round building)
  • June 9: syrups and infusions
  • July 14: daiquiris
  • August 11: gin with Jackson Hole Stillworks
  • September 8: how to properly balance a cocktail
  • October 13: bourbon

*more dates may be added per demandglorietta

Classes are on the second Sunday of the month, from 1:30-2:30 p.m., but they ask that you arrive five minutes before the class starts. These classes are only open to those over the age of 21, and cost just $40. After you’ve mastered the techniques of these cocktails, you can recreate them at home with the assistance of the recipe cards you get to take home.
