Hands On Tiki Cocktail Workshop
Each participant receives a bartender tool kit including a commemorative shaker, muddler, strainer, and more.

When it comes to tiki cocktails, what’s inside the glass or mug is often only half of the experience of a drink. In this class, bartenders from Hidden Harbor in Pittsburgh will teach you the ins and outs of tiki garnish and presentation, from the elegant to the over-the-top, and from the classic to the modern, including a few techniques from the bar’s bag of molecular mixology tricks. We’ll give you the know-how to make and serve fun and photograph-worthy tiki drinks for yourself and your guests. And for good measure, we’ll be making and sampling some very tasty tiki drinks along the way
