As we navigate social distancing, Flower City Drinksmiths are bringing their knowledge and love of drink right to your home - for the first time ever! After a brief history lesson on spirits, cocktails, and bar tools, students will learn to make two cocktails and a citrus syrup from left over fruit peels. So stay in, shake a cocktail, and imbibe with us.
