It’s a scary situation, one you’ll likely find in a Roy Lichtenstein cartoon. One evening, you’re making cocktails for your friends. Suddenly feelings of angst flood your system. Cue the theremin music. You stop, raise a hand to your chin and ponder: Should I shake or should I stir?
You’ll never have to face another cocktail conundrum again, if you learn from one of the city’s master mixologists. And Jeret Peña, owner of the Brooklynite, is ready to teach you.
He’ll be offering a technique and recipe seminar at his popular bar, 516 Brooklyn Ave., from 7:30 to 9 p.m. July 27.
In the 90-minute session, you’ll be greeted with a welcome cocktail, followed by the class itself in which you’ll get Peña’s recipes for seven craft cocktails. You’ll get three craft cocktail samples and some small bites to enjoy during the class. At the end, a closing cocktail will be served, and you’ll receive some take-home cocktail mix (just add liquor).
The cost of the seminar, cocktails, samples and recipes is $50.
Call the Brooklynite at (210) 444-0707 to reserve your spot. And call a cab if you stick around to enjoy a cocktail or two more after class.
