Get Started

You’ve conquered the basics of bartending and gotten creative with at-home ingredients and tools. Now, you’re ready to take on the world (literally)!

The first stop is Europe, where you’ll be crafting classic drinks from the UK to Italy. Then, we head to the Americas for a range of tropical cocktails. Finally, finish up with traditional Asian flavors now known and loved all across the planet (hello, milk tea!).

Buckle up and get ready for a flavor take-off!

Meet Your Instructor

Allen Fang, Carson Xie, Choni Song, Gary Hu, and Jackie Lo are back and better than ever! Our team of international expert bartenders is more than qualified to take you on this world tour of the planet’s most popular cocktails.

What You Need: Home Bartending Tools

No baggage is needed for this trip--just your handy at-home bartending tools. To be fully equipped, you’ll want a jigger, shaker, and strainer nearby, but don’t worry! There are plenty of common kitchen substitutes if you’re still building your home bar.

Classic Cocktail Forrmulas

Martinis, margaritas, and Bloody Marys...oh my! While classic cocktail formulas are mainstays for a reason, there are so many ways to play with old favorites. Sours, for example, are most often associated with whisky, but you can easily swap it with a liqueur for a lighter drink. Daiquiris are typically citrusy, but a variation with strawberries or bananas is just as delicious.

LEVEL 1 - Europe’s Best Cocktails + an At-Home Upgrade

Still stuck sipping on a Pimm’s Cup or reusing that outdated Aperol spritz recipe? Europe invented countless classic cocktails, but we’re taking the continent’s well-known drinks to a whole new level.

How To Infuse Alcohol

Upgrading your at-home cocktail recipes doesn’t have to be complicated. Unlock endless flavor combinations with this simple infusion technique, which blends your bottle of choice with notes of your favorite herbs, fruits, or whatever ingredients you choose!

How To Dry Shake

Like beautiful latte art, the fluffy foam used to top off a particularly fancy cocktail is something we tend to skip in the at-home version. But no longer! Dry shaking is the secret behind this special touch, and it’s the perfect skill to add to your bartending repertoire.

Bright, complex flavors of cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, and grapefruit come together in a mouth-watering syrup that adds serious flavor to an Indian-inspired cocktail. Here’s how to make your own!
