The Golden Pig, in Hopland, will host a one hour mixology class where you will learn how to master the craft of a proper winter Wassail cocktail. Modern recipes begin with a base of wine, fruit juice or mulled ale, sometimes with brandy or sherry added. Apples or oranges are often added to the mix to be tempered into the warm and delicious drink. Participants will be taught details such as to use proper technique and presentation using the appropriate glassware and thermometers, the correct temperature and more. With over ten years of bartending and mixology experience under his belt, Tyler Randolph will lead the class and teach participants how to create these cocktails along with their history. Participants will receive a small tincture bottle to enjoy at home, and you’ll have all the right tools to create a winter Wassail cocktail for friends and family over the holidays.
