Description

This is one cocktail mixing class you won’t want to rum away from!

Annie Blake and Ayme Harrison, co-founders of Death or Glory in Delray Beach, FL, are going to lead you through a no-holds barred mixology lesson that worships rum! Afterall, National Rum Day takes place in August, and we couldn’t not celebrate. Come mix along as the always charming Gio Gutierrez aka @ChatChowTV joins Blake and Harrison to showcase the precision and utmost care that Death or Glory is known for when it comes to crafting cocktails. Lynnette Marrero, Zacapa Mixologist, will also be on-hand to walk you through the nuances and flavor profiles of the Zacapa Rum Portfolio utilized to make these cocktails. Marrero is an NYC-based bartender, mixologist and philanthropist known for creating the world's first all-female speed bartending competition, "Speed Rack."

From elusive and whimsical creations to seasonal cocktails with such strong flavor profiles that they practically induce a state of euphoria, this talented quartet has a drink for everyone. We invite you to learn how to craft the perfect libation with the same level of finesse and exquisite flawlessness that Harrison and Blake are renowned for. Mix along at your own peril - but let's face it, we were all born to rum!

Please note: Cocktails for this class are made with the following base spirits: Ron Zacapa Edición Negra and Ron Zacapa 23. Other modifiers may be required and will be outlined in the recipes.
