In this class, you’ll learn to make herbal liqueurs! Amaro, St. Germain, and Chartreuse are all herbal liqueurs, made by infusing a lower ABV alcohol with herbs, fruits, and spices. You’ll walk away with a fantastic holiday gift for a host/hostess, friend, family member or just to enjoy yourself!
We'll have a table set up with a gorgeous array of organic fruits, herbs, spices, and BOOZE, so you can sip, sample, and craft your very own custom liqueurs for the holidays!
