About Our Classes
In each class Molly will allow you to concoct your version of a virgin cocktail to drink during the class, and Dan will help you create your own handmade holiday candy to eat or take home! Half of each class will be hands on and half will be demonstration. For those who would like to add liquor to their cocktail a bartender will be on staff, but liquor is not included in the cost of the class. The cost of the class does include a virgin cocktail and candy for two people to enjoy or take home with them! We will also send you home with printed recipes of the cocktails and candies from the class!
