We’re a little over a week into 2016, and hopefully those New Year’s resolutions are still going strong. If “drink more homemade cocktails” is among your personal declarations for this year, then lean in, friends: Because Scottsdale, Arizona’s top hands-on cocktail experience, Mixology 101, is returning for the New Year with a Spirits Series designed for guests eager to discover the subtle art of cocktail creation.
Mixology 101 is an interactive mixology class held inside jade bar at the award-winning Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain. Mixologists will tantalize the taste buds with a 3-hour mixology experience that accommodates up to 20 people per class. Guests will have the chance to mix their own cocktails while enjoying dishes from jade bar’s popular small plates menu as they learn cutting edge techniques, and get the inside scoop on jade bar’s freshness philosophy, spirit details, and the history behind the libations they are concocting.
