What you'll do

Join me and have a blast as we use fresh, simple ingredients to make (and of course, drink!) delicious cocktails at home.

**If you want to get festive - ask us about Holiday Themed Cocktails!**

This experience is GREAT FOR GROUPS & TEAM BUILDING
(feel free to request a specific date & time).

First things first…a great cocktail can be (and usually, should be) made with as few as three or four ingredients. The most common household items that will yield a wide array of choices are: citrus juice (from lemons or limes) and sugar (white, raw, maple syrup, agave nectar, honey etc). With even just one from each of these categories, you’ll be sitting pretty.

For spirits, we’ll be drinking something fabulous whether we’re reaching for gin, rum, tequila, vodka, aquavit, whiskey…the list goes on.

You will be guided through the history of bartending and cocktails - we'll discuss a few key techniques for making killer cocktails at home!

We will dive into the finer details of ice, dilution, citrus, bitters, bar tool etiquette etc.

We’ll shake cocktails, we’ll stir cocktails, we’ll laugh, we’ll drink, we’ll become friends.

We'll socialize — regardless of distance.

Hey!

My name is Simeon. I am the founder of Equal Parts Cocktail Company. We specialize in creating guest-driven drinking experiences.

Now, they're online!

Over the past nine years, I have spent countless hours studying and honing my craft with other bartenders from all over the country as a member of the United States Bartenders Guild.

For years, I have absolutely loved taking care of others through cocktails, it is my joy, my passion, and the core value of my business. To continue along this journey, the time has come to embrace the ‘virtual venue’.

My bar has been converted into a professionally lit, camera-ready studio bar looking to guide guests along their home bartending endeavors.


Sincerely, your bartender Simeon.

Simeon provides a great experience in learning about the technical details of mixing cocktails as well as the history. This class was more informative than I expected and I walked away learning a lot. Thank you Simeon!

I tend to stick more to wine and beer, so I expected this class to be new and different, but I was really surprised at how interesting I found the class! I’m someone who learns best when I understand the reasons behind everything when I’m being shown something new, and Simeon explained everything in a way that kept it fun and engaging. And the end of class, you have some tasty beverages and can impress your friends with your new skills — what could be better? 😉 Now I’m just trying to figure out who I’m going to invite to the holiday party I’m planning on booking….
