The Perfect Cocktail Party *In-Person* *NEW*

What’s the perfect cocktail party? Food that wows, doesn’t require difficult recipes, can be made ahead (or even purchased), and is filling enough to serve as dinner. Add an array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks along with a signature cocktail and you have the makings of a great party. In this class we’ll make some real crowd pleasers – from everyone’s favorite hot artichoke dip, to figs wrapped in prosciutto, to an elegant (and simple) charcuterie board and more. We’ll review how to set up a bar and learn to make mojitos for a crowd. You’ll leave with recipes and tips for your next party. Instructor: Denise Blumenthal
