Join Mixologist Cory as he debunks the myths of absinthe in this online mixology class.

Get ready to mix up a variety of classic absinthe cocktails while learning everything there is to know about the infamous alcohol in this online mixology class with Mixologist Cory. Begin with the traditional absinthe serving of just absinthe and ice water and be memorized as the clear liquid turns into a milky haze while you hone in on its distinct, herbal flavor. Enjoy Hemmingway's own effervescent creation, the Death in the Afternoon with sparkling wine.

We had a custom mixology class with Cory and it was amazing! I am a cocktail nerd and Cory showed me so many new tips and tricks; not to mention the best Sazerac I've ever had!! Cory is very knowledgable, easygoing, and has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend taking one of his classes or set up your own custom class! Thank you Cory!
