Cocktail Craftmanship

Liquor Lab Elevates The Cocktail Experience

Ever dreamt of becoming a cocktail connoisseur?

Liquor Lab Nashville will make that dream a reality, one cocktail class at a time. One elevated cocktail class at Liquor Lab teaches participants how to make three impressive cocktails that will wow friends! Those who attend a class will leave being able to recreate the bar-quality cocktails at home. Due to their rotating class schedule, patrons are able to attend multiple classes, making it so they will experience and learn new cocktails every time they come in.

Liquor Lab’s Freddie Sarkis describes the experience as “edutainment,” which stands for education and entertainment.

“People are afraid of cocktails,” Freddie says. “When you say cocktail to someone you think it’s gonna' be really complex, or think it’s not gonna' be something I can do at home. So we decided to demystify that and give people the at-home experience and give them a glimpse of what our world is like, and take some of these bar-quality cocktails and bring them home to you.”

Each class is taught in an intimate setting. This makes it easier to interact with the class teachers, all of whom are professional bartenders who are beyond knowledgeable in cocktail history.

Freddie is incredibly proud of his staff. “We are so fortunate to work with some of the biggest names in our industry at one point or another,” Freddie says. “We have an absolutely killer group of instructors so when you come to a class, you’re in the hands of a professional, not just a professional mixologist, but a professional bartender.”

Liquor Lab Nashville is set to spice up Sundays with an exciting new brunch experience called "Sunday Reverie," where the pleasures of brunch eating meet the art of brunch cocktail-making. This unique experience promises to be the perfect way to shake off those Sunday scaries, and unlock inner bartenders.

The weekend before Halloween, Liquor Lab Nashville is scheduled to offer classes on “Fright Night” cocktails based on popular Halloween movies.

Liquor Lab Nashville even provided two spooky cocktail recipes here to impress at any Halloween party.

La Gran Calabaza:

Inspired by the great pumpkin Charlie Brown, "La Gran Calabaza" is a playful yet delicious take on the flavors of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Crafted with care, this bewitching brew features the following tantalizing ingredients:

  • 1.5 ounces Blanco tequila
  • 0.5 ounce pumpkin agave syrup*
  • 0.75 ounce lemon juice

To conjure up this tantalizing elixir, combine the ingredients and shake vigorously with ice. Strain it over fresh rocks and add an enchanting touch with a line of mole bitters as garnish.

*To create the pumpkin agave syrup, toast one cracked cinnamon stick, 2 cloves, 5 cracked allspice berries, and other desired pie spices in a dry pot for 30 seconds. Add one cup of water and one cup of pumpkin purée. Allow it to simmer and then remove it from heat. Let it infuse for 20 minutes before straining. Mix the resulting liquid with 2 parts agave nectar to craft this spellbinding syrup.

Malachai's Old Fashioned:

For those seeking a cocktail inspired by the eerie allure of Malachai from "Children of the Corn," Liquor Lab presents this mysterious libation that showcases a unique blend of flavors.

  • 1 ounce Mellow Corn bonded whiskey
  • 0.5 ounce Demerara Rum
  • 0.25 ounce Corn silk syrup**
  • 2 dashes of aromatic bitters

To bring this enigmatic concoction to life, gently stir and strain it over fresh ice, and garnish it with a captivating swath of orange zest.

Corn silk syrup: In a cauldron of flavor, bring 1 cup of water to a boil with 5 corn silk tea bags.

Once boiling, add 2 cups of raw sugar and reduce the heat. Stir until the sugar is entirely dissolved. Afterward, fine strain and store for bewitching mixology needs.
