Ever get stuck playing bartender at your own party when you’d rather be mingling? On Tuesday, January 23rd, The Hawthorne is ready to help you put up your dukes and throw a punch or two into your repertoire with a cocktail class all about drinks in a bowl. Punch is the original cocktail—great for entertaining because it’s communal, easy to prepare before your guests arrive, and really, really good. Join Bar Manager Jared Sadoian and Head Bartender Rob Ficks as they lead a discussion on the beguiling beverage’s history before teaching you exactly what makes a good one. You’ll sample five punch recipes, and the class will end with a primer on cutting ice for the finishing touches on your home punches. The class is $75 including all course materials, and participants must be at least 21. Click here for tickets.
