"Cocktail Class - No Shots Allowed: Tequila Cocktails": Tammy's Tastings.

  community member   < less

Too often, the word "tequila" brings to mind bad 21st birthdays and fraternity hazing. In this class you'll learn the differences between different grades of tequila and we'll examine the variety of roles this under-appreciated spirit plays in cocktails. Its sultry, smoky and sophisticated cousin Mezcal will also appear.
Your booking includes light snacks (pretzels, nuts). The Last Word is closed during the class, so no food service is available. The class includes a combination of history and stories, technique instruction, and hands-on making of cocktails. Plus sampling, of course! Total consumption is equivalent to 1.5-2 cocktails per person over the two hour class.
The Last Word, 301 W Huron St. $45. 734-276-3215. [map]
