Cosa farete

We'll start by exploring your experiences with cocktails, have you made any at home, what are your favourites and what have been your biggest frustrations & proudest moments. Then I'll share some unique stories from my banking to bar owner journey and some tips for anyone considering doing it (don't do it lol). Then we'll get into a little history & how cocktails have evolved from 1800 to today before covering tools, tips, techniques such as stirring & shaking and the critical elements of making a great drink such as balance & dilution. Not to forget what I really think of slushie cocktails and fruit tingles! This is real insider info from career bartenders, things you can only learn from doing it night after night. What you saw Tom Cruise do in "Cocktail" is not reality! Then comes the really fun part, the practical, hands-on stuff. You'll get behind the bar and make two cocktails each under my direction. Even better, you get to drink your own creations! It's always fascinating to get people's feedback on their own drinks. I love to see the pride on everyone's face when they know they can do it themselves. It's an open, interactive session so I'm open to Q&A all the way through. Before we finish up, we can explore any other cocktails you'd like to learn more about and I can share the best places for you to source your own equipment to start your own home bar

Ulteriori informazioni su Matthew

Matthew

After 13 years in investment banking, I switched to hospitality & eventually founded Queensland's first gin & cocktail bar, Dutch Courage. Within 4 weeks, I went from being an Executive Director of a global bank to starting again in a new industry, polishing glasses & sweeping floors. The experience was humbling but energising and gave me a new perspective on life. I learned the art of cocktail bartending from the legends I worked with, the books I read and lots of tasting & experimenting. I was fortunate enough to bartend in nightclubs, fine-dining restaurants & cocktail bars before opening Dutch in 2014. Through the efforts of my team, Dutch Courage has twice been nominated for Australian Gin Bar of the Year. I've spent 8 years serving guests, making drinks & hosting classes. I would like to share that experience with you.

Dove ti troverai
