Celebrate Father’s Day with a bourbon-focused cocktail class! In this class students will learn how to make two fantastic Dad-approved cocktails and will even leave class with some summer grilling tips (+ a pack of Black Button’s very own Steak Rub). First, enjoy a classic Old Fashioned while learning all about bourbon. Then, mix up an easy Summer Sipper with bourbon, iced tea, freshly squeezed lemon juice and honey syrup. Whether you’re a dad, want to gift it to dad, or just know a dad – join us for a fun afternoon of cocktail mixing and sipping!
