Ring In Spring With Some Mystery Mixology

Spring is here!! And there's no better way to ring in the season than with a refreshing cocktail out on the patio, balcony, porch, or even sitting on the couch.

Our mixologist walked us through step-by-step.


The team at Gente de Mezcal hosts our virtual cocktail classes and they know a thing or two about mixing a good drink. Gente de Mezcal (‘Mezcal People’) is a small, independent, Mezcal-producing company founded in 2015 by Hardey Martínez and Juan Carlos Muñoz Flores. The founders are passionate about small-batch production, local sustainability, and the promotion of Mexican Mezcal culture. Their award-winning mixologists lead our virtual Mezcal & Tequila Cocktail Class—one of our most popular experiences and perfect for really elevating a team happy hour!
