What a great way to bring people together safely and still learn about Mezcal! I am not personally a fan of tequila/mezcal but learning how to structure the drinks and what makes a mezcal special helped me actually enjoy it! I was just making my drinks all whacked in the past apparently! Ha ha. Kudos and thank you for the help!
David and Sofia were excellent teachers! Our group had a blast learning how to make tasty beverages with them and we'll most likely do it again.
This was a super fun experience! I booked a private party for my husband's birthday and invited a bunch of his friends. The hosts were very friendly and got to know the group by asking questions. They walked us through the making of each cocktail and really worked with whatever we had on hand. I would recommend this for a fun group gathering or date night activity!
This was such a great experience! Ana was so fun and personable as well as knowledgeable and entertaining. This was my first Airbnb experience and it blew all of my expectations! Highly recommend!
David was great, super knowledgeable on mezcal/tequila obviously and did a great job of engaging with everyone!
So fantastic - was the perfect choice for my husband's birthday! Ana is so knowledgeable and genuine, great experience and left with so many new ideas for cocktails!
A great balance of helpful info and interactiveness! Made some delicious cocktails with friends and family
We were the only two in our class so it ended up being a very personalized experience. We made three cocktails—all delicious—and learned about tequila and Mezcal. We got extra tips and ideas as well, along with a great recommendation on an app to download. I haven’t received the recipes yet but it’s only been about an hour since the class, so we look forward to getting them. A fun afternoon that will set us up for great parties this summer.
Thanks for the fun experience! A group of us took this class to celebrate a friend's birthday and we had a lot of fun! The cocktail recipes were unique and delicious, and we learned a lot about Tequila and Mezcal along the way. Thank you again for being a great host and making my friend's birthday extra special 🙂
Date night winner! Just do it. They are amazing. We learned a lot and had a blast taking this class!
Amazing, personalized experience that is well worth the value! We learned three different cocktails, each with their own fun way of incorporating mezcal. I would definitely recommend having a full cocktail kit and the listed ingredients if possible, it definitely allows for a lot more playfulness in the kitchen.
My husband and I each participated and made our own unique drinks. They were absolutely delicious! We even made one on our own to enjoy after the presentation. It was great to learn how to make drinks with fresh ingredients. Not all of the participants had the same ingredients but Ana made it easy to improvise to make a beautifully layered Mezcal or Tequila drink.
What a fun Saturday night! It was like drinking with friends across the world. Not only did we learn a few cocktail tricks, we got to learn how to really build a well crafted cocktail “layer by layer”. Highly recommended
We did this as a company event with about 8 people and it was incredible they could personalize to each of us. If you don't have the ingredients (even alcohol) they will make sure you are still able to build some incredible drinks. Great online experience!
A super fun experience with awesome and knowledgeable hosts! A great way to bring groups from all over together in an interactive and casual way. I would definitely do this again.
Ana did an amazing job breaking down cocktail theory and then had a wonderful array or cocktails for us to make together. She took her time and answered all our questions about tequila and mezcal. I felt like I learned so much during this time and was so happy to be a part of it. I’d strongly recommend the experience to anyone!
Did this class with a private group and despite our lack of organization and experience behind the bar. Liza made this a super engaging and enjoyable experience. Remembered our names throughout, called on people to show their drinks, stayed patient when we messed up. Even better than I expected
Terrific experience. Host was very knowledgeable, engaging and interesting. Was good about making sure there were customizations for each participant. Thoroughly enjoyed!
Do not hesitate to take this class! This was such a fun way to spend a Saturday night in locked-down NYC. I’ve never been good at making drinks on my own and Ana and Gaby’s instruction was clear and easy and they managed to include every single person in the class along the way. I used to live in Mexico City and really miss it so if I get to go back soon I would likely check in on them and ask for their suggestions of where to eat and drink bc it’s clear they know what they are talking about. Thanks guys for a very fun evening. I’m feeling it this morning which is the best sign of a good time!
This is a super fun experience my Partner and I did on a random Tuesday evening.
We were both kind of rushing around right before and host was really engaging and got us both into the class.
We were totally blown away by what we learned and the cocktail making approach we learned and look forward to using in future!
This was a great experience. The hosts were welcoming and knowledgeable, inclusive and personable. I would definitely recommend for any mezcal or tequila fans. Good value for price I thought also.
LOVED THIS EXPERIENCE! I've always wanted to take a bartending class, never thought a virtual one could be so great! Sade was amazing! Walked us through everything, helped us make substitutions when necessary and made itreally feel like I could walk away from this and make these cocktails for friends! I've already started telling friends that we should do this together because I would definitely do it again! ALSO she played great tunes throughout the entire class.
Had a lovely time with new and old friends making delicious cocktails. Sade was super friendly! Thanks!
Many thanks! Our bartender/instructor Sade was so delightful and the drinks delicious. Her instruction was a fantastic set up to help me make many future tasty cocktails. Thank you!!
If you're thinking about booking this experience, do it! David was our bartender/mixologist for the night, and he was amazing. Very personable, and understood the vibe of our group as I brought together several of my partner's friend groups to celebrate his birthday virtually. We learned a lot and got some amazing recipes out of it that I can wait to keep trying this summer! Thanks so much, David!
This event was great! Not only do you get to make a variety of cocktails, but you also learn how to layer mezcal cocktails (the basics) so that you can make any cocktail to your liking in the future. Tons of fun learning about Mexico City and the history of mezcal. Highly recommend for a night of fun!
Had a great time learning to make cocktails, especially in the time of covid when bars are closed. David was a fun and accommodating host, tailoring drinks based on the ingredients we had. I like that we learned the fundamentals so that we knew how to alter ingredients or ingredient combinations to make "new" drinks on our own in the future.
We did this for a work team building experience and it was great. Ana brought everybody in and also created some excellent cocktails.
This experience was just incredible!! Their employee Ana conducted the tasting and her passion for mezcal was incredible. We had 4 total in our group. It was incredibly personal as we got to know each other and Ana taught us everything she could about mezcal tasting. Thank you beyond words for a wonderful time!!! I can’t recommend this enough!!
Perfect surprise birthday experience for our friends during quarantine! The hosts were more than accommodating, fun, and knowledgeable. We learned so much and had the best time celebrating our friend’s birthday. 10/10 would recommend! Thanks, ladies!
Had the best time learning all about Mezcal and how to make some amazing tequila drinks! But most importantly Ana taught us WHY certain mixed drinks ka are so amazing, giving us the skills we need to go on creating our own! An amazing class and an amazing teacher. Thanks Ana for everything!
Booked this virtual experience as a gift for Mother's day and it did not disappoint. I was able to spent time with my parents although we are on different coasts and Ana was a great host.
Would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone! You don't need to be super into making cocktails or tequila/mezcal for this to be enjoyable. Sade was an excellent host that made the experience easy, fun, and interesting. Definitely recommend!
This event was absolutely amazing and I recommend it to everyone. I chose this for a Cinco De Mayo customer event, and I’m so glad I did. Our host was so pleasant and knowledgeable and interacted with my very quiet customers. By the end, everyone had opened up and was raving. If you’re on the fence about booking this experience, don’t be. It was fabulous.
Great activity for those who unable to travel directly to Mexico, or have always been curious of what makes Mexican Mezcal such a great spirit. Class adapts to whatever you have on hand, so do not sweat if you run out of or don’t have the exact ingredients.
Fun experience. Learned a lot about the history and origins of Tequila !! Delicious . Drinks we made are easily done independently..which is great. We really enjoyed .
This was such a fun "girls night out" virtual experience for a birthday party. The hosts showed us how to make two cocktails, and they worked with each of us to pair fruit and herbs together so all of our cocktails would taste as great as possible based on what ingredients we had available. It was clear they were highly knowledgeable about tequila and mezcal. I chose this because given the ongoing quarantine conditions we're living with in the United States, I knew it would be a while before I can celebrate with friends in person. This gave us a chance to celebrate and do something unique that we couldn't normally do together.
We did this as a virtual team building activity for work and it was a hit! In particular, we appreciated that Liza tailored the options for each participant and she was very creative, accommodating, and flexible. One participant noted that Liza was very experienced, fun, and resourceful and they loved being with the group and having a fun time. "My margarita was mind-blowing!"
I can’t believe how good I am now at making mezcal cocktails thanks to this experience… might be a problem 🙂 Had a great time and our host was fun and accommodating. Would highly recommend to groups of friends or colleagues!
I was initially hesitant to sign up for this experience because I had just done something similar in Oaxaca the week before and figured this would mostly be a rehash of what I had just learned. I couldn't have been more wrong. I'm SO glad I took the chance on this and I would recommend it to anyone, whether you've just heard of mezcal for the first time or you've been drinking it for years.
To start, El Salón is a fantastic environment to taste. It's very well designed, clean, intimate and comfortable. The mezcal itself is special too. Each mezcal we tasted was unique and delicious, as I expected, but they were also from remarkably small batches. These are not bottles you're likely to find anywhere else, and I'm glad to say their bottle prices really don't do justice to their rarity or quality.
The part that really made this experience special, though--especially after considering my previous tasting--was the host.
I was blown away not only by Ana's knowledge of mezcal and the culture surrounding it, but also by her genuine passion of the subject. You can tell immediately she isn't just there to do a job, but to share this passion with others. No matter what random question I came up with she seemed to have not only an answer, but a story and a thoughtful perspective to share.
Again, can't recommend it enough.
We had a wonderful time learning how to mix cocktails with Katri & Hardey. They were super enthusiastic and created a really fun experience for our group of friends. Each drink that we made was delicious. We will definitely me using our new-found mixology skills at home!
This was a great experience and I would definitely do another one and try to learn different drinks.
Fantastic!! I’ve never made cocktails with more than two ingredients, but now I realize it isn’t scary at all.
The setting gives a real sense of place. Katri put the emphasis on adaptive, hands-on teaching, working with your skills at any level, and your equipment and supplies. The approach to cocktail-making emphasizes innovation and creativity, as well as balance of flavors. I was given skills beyond the specific recipes we worked on together. Very fun!!!
We had an awesome time with Ana. She was super fun and and expert mixologist. She walked us through history and details of making amazing cocktails that we will keep making!
Katri & Hardey set up a super fun private cocktail making party for us all the way in Asia, and it couldn’t have been better!!! Delicious drinks, great info and storytelling where we learned about mezcal and tequila as if we were there! We were well prepared thanks to the info ahead of time too. I really enjoyed the personalised bits from the host about her favorite mezcal and tequila/mezcal regions of Mexico... what a great way to celebrate my birthday!!!
The experience was fun and informative on how to build a cocktail with fresh ingredients. I am looking forward to receiving the recipes and also how to make some for a crowd. If my computer screen was larger it would have been better but it was fine.
I booked a private class for my husbands 30th birthday and invited some family and friends. They were so quick to respond to my questions and were very accommodating. The class was so much fun! Our mixologist was great. She took time to check-in with each person and made recommendations based on the ingredients they had. She was also good at reading the mood of the group - knowing when to "teach" and when to let people chat and drink. I also now know how to make a mean mezcal cocktail. I would definitely recommend this experience, especially for a group of friends looking to connect during the pandemic.
Great experience for my couples or a group of friends! Looking forward to doing an event like this for a birthday party or something of that sort with a large group of friends! We had a great time with Sade!
Who knew that a Margarita could be so flavorful with a touch spice and citrus (and not syrupy sweet as we find it in the US)? Or that a simple mezcal tonic could taste (and smell) so divine? This class is the real deal. It’s an authentic introduction to understanding the flavors that go into making these classic cocktails by the best baristas in Mexico. David was exceptional. He really gave us permission to experiment. Highly recommend it!
So fun and the drinks were amazing! Highly recommend for a great and informative virtual experience.
We had a great time doing this master class for our anniversary. We learned so much about mezcal and how to mix drinks like an expert. Great way to feel like you're able to travel even in the middle of a pandemic!
The experience was honestly amazing! I chose this for a date night activity and it exceeded my expectations. Ana was extremely knowledgable and personable. I cannot wait to visit Mexico City to seal the deal with an in-person tasting.
We had so much fun at the class. David was our host and he was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He did a great job answering questions, suggesting different tips for recipes, etc. The drinks were delicious and I'm happy to have the recipes in our repertoire. We also came out of it with some great resources in terms of suggested brands of tequilas and mezcals, where to find them, and copies of the recipes we made. Definitely recommend this class.
