A Work of Art in Every Glass
Every artist must first know their instruments before mastering their craft. Taking this to heart, Raise the Bar on Leap Year begins with the basics - what liquors, extracts, bitters and mixers are necessary in a sophisticated home bar; choosing the right glassware for each cocktail; understanding ratios; proper ice handling; whether to shake or stir - and quickly unleashes students to craft their own quaffable works of art. And yes, you can drink whater you create.
