friday, july 21st
hygge - camp north end
7:30pm ($65 PER PERSON)

We’re bringing a little tropical paradise to Charlotte with our Tiki Cocktail Class.

One of the coolest retro trends in cocktails is the return of the reinvented tiki cocktail.  A proper rum blend is the key to a balanced tiki cocktail. This class will present the fundamentals for blending base spirits for cocktails.


These refreshing, Polynesian-inspired drinks were all the rage in the ‘40s and ‘50s. Now they’re back with the benefit of fresher, higher quality ingredients like fresh-squeezed tropical juices, layered flavors, multiple liquors – like two or more rums, homemade syrups and flavor accents like homemade grenadine, and fresh spices, like nutmeg, cinnamon and almond.

Guests will be able to shake, stir and enjoy their libations and you'll also receive detailed recipes so you can recreate these cocktails at home.
