Holiday parties aren’t quite in full swing yet, but wait a few weeks and they will be. Want to impress your guests (or fellow party-goers) with your cocktail mastery when the time comes? Learn from a pro, Parsnip’s bartender Augusto Lino, on Saturday, November 17th so you’re prepared with the shaking and stirring knowledge you need once the celebrations roll around. From 4:00 to 6:00pm, Lino (previously of UpStairs on the Square, Hungry Mother, Area Four and A4cade) will teach you the ins-and-outs of mocktail making and cocktail crafting. The 21+ class is $75 per person and includes recipes, a tasting of four signature concoctions and small bites. All proceeds will go to Community Cooks, a local organization that recruits volunteers to prepare home-cooked meals for those who might otherwise go without food.
