The  agave plant is the provider of that Scotch from south of the border, Mezcal, and its close cousin, Tequila.

Instead, our instructor lead you through mixing techniques and recipes for these absolutely delicious, frequently misunderstood liquors. Lite bites and 3 Full Sized Cocktails are included in the ticket price.

After class stay for a special LYP  Pop-Up Bar takeover.  Our mixologists / bartenders will be serving cocktails from a signature cocktail menu focused on the Mixology of Mexico in the upstairs lounge until 11pm.   The music will be appropriate, the atmosphere sophisticated and the kitchen will be open.
