What to Expect

A one-of-a-kind craft cocktail hands-on group adventure.

What’s one step better than enjoying a well-crafted cocktail at the nationally known bar, Stellina? We know – learning to make these cocktails yourself, with friends and family. And of course, you get to enjoy them as well.

Ever wonder…why are some cocktails shaken?  Why are some stirred?  Why does James Bond care so much?   Can I use bourbon instead of gin?  When you start to ask these questions AND learn and experience the answers, something amazing happens.  You become much more interesting and strangers start to smile at you for no apparent reason.

Well, maybe not. But learning to make these four essential and foundational cocktails will be super fun!  And it’s a great way to bond with friends, colleagues and/or family.

Be the maker!

You’ll learn to make four of the most important craft cocktails on planet earth! A French 75, a Manhattan, a Tommy Margarita, and a Bourbon Smash.   You’ll learn the basics and you’ll learn when you can improvise.  You’ll also get to use the very cool bartender equipment and flame some orange peels.  Fun!

Then, gather and mingle with friends to enjoy your creations.

We’ll remind you to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, plus we’ll provide some nibbles from Fortunato too.

Get your brain in the mix too.

Making and ordering a craft cocktail should not be intimidating or mysterious.  The award-winning bartenders at Stellina will let you peek under the hood and get your hands and mind into the mix!

If we use citrus juice should we shake or stir?  Do we want the ice to melt?   What’s up with those garnishes.   And how did these cocktail get their names anyway?

We’ve got answers. And, we might even share some with you!  Of course, we will, that’s part of the fun for us.
