Everyone’s favorite drink maestro, Gio Gutierrez aka @ChatChowTV, will team up with Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits’ Director of Cocktail Development, South Florida, Carla Rivera, to showcase refreshing libations that are designed to beat the summer heat! Throughout the class, Gutierrez and Rivera will be joined by a few four-legged pupologists to help them teach the art of the perfect summertime cocktail! Deck out your canine bff in their best ‘yappie hour’ attire and join along for a mixology lesson unlike anything you’ve ever seen before! The dog days of summer may be ending soon, but when you have some Tito’s Handmade Vodka, the fun never ends!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON SPIRITS & PREMIUM MIXERS

TITO’S HANDMADE VODKA IS AMERICA’S ORIGINAL CRAFT VODKA. IN 1995, BERT “TITO” BEVERIDGE OBTAINED THE FIRST LEGAL PERMIT TO DISTILL IN TEXAS AND CREATED TITO’S HANDMADE VODKA. WE BATCH DISTILL OUR CORN-BASED VODKA USING OLD-FASHIONED POT STILLS AND THE VODKA IS NATURALLY GLUTEN-FREE. TITO’S HANDMADE VODKA IS DISTILLED AND BOTTLED BY FIFTH GENERATION INC. IN AUSTIN, TEXAS ON THE VERY SAME LAND WHERE THE WHOLE VENTURE STARTED.

AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR STORY AT TITO’S HANDMADE VODKA IS THE INNATE CONNECTION WE HAVE WITH OUR CANINE COUNTERPARTS. SINCE THE BEGINNING, WE HAVE WORKED WITH TITO TO BRING HIS DREAM TO LIFE FOR 20 YEARS, WE HAVE BEEN COMMITTED TO RESCUING AND PROTECTING THE DOGS THAT HAVE COME INTO OUR LIVES, OFTEN SERENDIPITOUSLY-MANY OF WHOM NOW THRIVE ALONGSIDE US AT OUR DISTILLERY AND OUR OFFICE, INSPIRING US EVERY DAY.

FEVER-TREE FOUNDED IN 2005, IS THE LEADING PREMIUM LINE OF CARBONATED MIXERS. IT PROCURES THE WORLD'S FINEST INGREDIENTS FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE, INCLUDING QUININE FROM THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO, GINGER FROM IVORY COAST, INDIA AND NIGERIA, AND LEMONS FROM SICILY. THE FEVER-TREE RANGE IS DESIGNED TO COMPLEMENT AND ENHANCE A WIDE ARRAY OF PREMIUM SPIRITS AND WITH ITS HIGH QUALITY AND NATURALLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS IS THE PERFECT ACCOMPANIMENT TO ANY DRINKING OCCASION. SINCE ITS LAUNCH, FEVER-TREE HAS COLLECTED A VAST NUMBER OF AWARDS, INCLUDING THE BEST SELLING & TOP TRENDING TONIC WATER FOR SIX CONSECUTIVE YEARS BY DRINKS INTERNATIONAL'S SURVEYS OF THE WORLD'S BEST BARS. IN THE U.S., FEVER-TREE'S PORTFOLIO INCLUDES 18 MIXERS, COMPRISING TONICS, GINGER ALES AND GINGER BEERS THAT ARE AVAILABLE AT LEADING RETAILERS, BARS AND RESTAURANTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

  • FEVER-TREE PREMIUM CLUB SODA: BY USING SOFT SPRING WATER, BICARBONATE OF SODA AND A HIGH LEVEL OF CARBONATION, WE'VE CREATED A DELICIOUS CLUB SODA WITH A DELICATE AROMA. PERFECT FOR BRINGING OUT THE BEST FLAVORS OF THE FINEST SPIRITS.OUR CLUB SODA HAS A SILKY SMOOTH TEXTURE CREATED BY USING THE FINEST SPRING WATER (WHICH HAS A LOW MINERAL CONTENT) AND A HIGH LEVEL OF CARBONATION; IT HAS NO AROMA SO IT CAN MORE EFFECTIVELY BRING TO LIFE THE FLAVORS OF THE PREMIUM SPIRIT IT'S BEING MIXED WITH.
  • FEVER-TREE GINGER BEER: BY BREWING A BLEND OF THREE GINGERS FROM NIGERIA, COCHIN AND THE IVORY COAST, WE HAVE CREATED AN AWARD-WINNING GINGER BEER THAT HAS BEEN HIGHLY ACCLAIMED BY GASTRONOMES AND CRITICS ALIKE. NOT TOO SWEET ON THE PALATE AND WITH A DEEP, LONG-LASTING GINGER CHARACTER. TO ACHIEVE THE FIERY, FULL-BODIED TASTE OF OUR GINGER BEER, WE SELECTED THREE TYPES OF GINGER FOR THEIR COMPLEMENTARY, YET DISTINCTIVE, FLAVOR PROFILES. FROM COCHIN IN INDIA, WE SOURCE A VARIETY THAT LENDS A RICH AND EARTHY, ALMOST CHOCOLATEY, FLAVOUR. FROM THE IVORY COAST, WE GET A FRESH GREEN GINGER THAT HAS AN INCREDIBLE LEMONGRASS FRESHNESS. FINALLY, OUR NIGERIAN GINGER BRINGS A DEEP, INTENSE FLAVOR TO THE BLEND. AS WELL AS PRESSING THE PLANT TO EXTRACT THE OILS, WE MACERATE THE ROOTS AND STEEP THEM TO RELEASE THE STRONGER, MORE TYPICAL GINGER FLAVORS.

We recommend preparing as much as possible in advance of the class. Having all your equipment ready on your countertop and ingredients pre-measured prior to the start of the Zoom class will allow you to follow along in real time.
