Harding's NYC

Americana-chic Flatiron parlor, Harding’s, is shaking up the first Tuesday of each month with the launch of a new hands-on mixology class series. The series which started on Tuesday, May 6, will lead participants through an interactive 1-hour session (with Harding's head mixologist) to instill the building blocks of mixology (for instance, the difference between bourbon and rye, and why James Bond should have ordered his martinis "stirred—not shaken"), fundamental mixology techniques, and the methods behind three seasonally inspired cocktails, each month built around a new theme: May’s class will focused on floral cocktails using ingredients like lavender bitters, rosewater, and elderflower liquor. June will illuminate the lighter, brighter side of whiskey. In July, spicy jalapeno and ginger-infused cocktails will most certainly set off fireworks. Complimentary light snacks will also be provided.

The experience of learning how to make your own drink is probably one of the best DIY skills to have at your disposal. Yes, its cool to build houses or learn how to make a cake but the person that can make a drink will never be without friends and gets invited to all parties. Bartender (mixologist) Derrick Turner takes you through a small history lesson and then gives you some key pointers on how to avoid getting screwed at the club/lounge/bar. Trust me, although its only for an hour, it would be the best hour of the day, definitely worth taking the class.

Here are the details on how to sign up and more…
