The Hoxton’s Mixology Class in Miami
Last week, we attended a Mixology Class at the Hoxton, Brickell’s urban beach house, in Miami and it was a blast! This casual mixology course is perfect for those wanting to learn how to make an unforgettable cocktail but need a little help getting there. We were joined by a small group of fellow-drinkers who went from strangers to our new best friends in just minutes! What really makes the course special is Hoxton’s very own mixologist, Thomas Merolla who gave us the step-by-step instructions to making 3 drinks that evening: Margarita, Manhattan, and French 75. After the demo, we got to get behind the bar and tried our hand at mixology! I have to admit, I wasn’t the most skilled at drink-making, but I have the drink-drinking part down pat!
The classes, which cost $45 per person or $80 for a couple, also include delicious bar bites that correspond to the drinks plus a gift bag filled with goodies that will keep the mixology-fun going at home! Courses can also be customized for a private party if you are looking to do something a little different for your next get-together.
If you want to learn more about the mixology master, Thomas Merolla, check out his tutorial video posted on Chat Chow TV which gives you a bit of a preview of what you can expect from his class!
I definitely want to check this out again…and with the drinks lineup changing every month, I have a great reason to go again! I will give 1 WARNING…make sure you do have a bit before you get there. The food that they offer during the course is great, but are appetizer portions…so if you are going to drink while you learn, I would recommend that you have some food on your stomach first! And, of course, make sure you have a designated driver or plan to cab it with your amigos!
