Mixology Class with Bully Boy Distillers

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Learn how to create craft cocktails using local spirits made right here in New England! Each cocktail will be made using Bully Boy Distillers liquors paired with their freshly made bitters and syrups.

The Mixology Class will be a step-by-step demonstration introducing proper mixology techniques that participants can then use at home. The class will cover a tasting of the 3 spirits being used in the cocktail class in addition to instructions on "proper tasting techniques" to cover associated aromas and tastes. Learn how to make 3 cocktails start to finish and talk about basic cocktail terminology: Up, rocks, stirred vs. shaken, what shakers are called, what strainers are called. Learn about every single ingredient and how to reproduce the results at home.

In each class, participants will learn three signature cocktails paired with Bully Boy whiskey, rum and gin.

April, May and June Cocktails

  • Cucumber Basil Gimlet | A refreshing spin on a classic cocktail that uses fresh, seasonal produce. Muddled cucumber and basil give this cocktail a bright green hue which we will mix with lime juice, simple syrup, and gin for a well-balanced drink sure to impress all drinkers
  • White Rum Daiquiri | Daiquiris are historically one of the first cocktails ever created based on their simplicity - rum, sugar, and limes. We'll add a few small touches to make this an interesting version of the daiquiri composed of our White Rum, lime juice, simple syrup with mint and Angostura bitters shaken in. This fresh, boozy, and classic cocktail always goes down easily.
  • Whiskey Sour | Whiskey sours are one of those drinks people ask about making all of the time - always better when they order it out at a bar vs. try to make it at home. We'll do a very classic preparation of this cocktail by using American Straight Whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and an egg white to bring a really nice, smooth, and creamy texture to the cocktail.

Along with the cocktails we will also provide a local cheese and snack board from Appleton Farms, the Boston Public Market's purveyer of over 100 Massachusetts cheeses!

About Bully Boy Distillers

Bully Boy Distillers is Boston's first ever craft-distillery founded in 2010 by brothers Will & Dave Willis. Located in Boston's Newmarket District, Bully Boy produces a wide variety of spirits including vodka, gin, whiskies, and rums. Visitors to the distillery can take tours of their state of the art facility and enjoy cocktails made in the Tasting Room bar, voted Best of Boston in 2017, which overlooks the production facility. Classes will be led by either Alex Koblan or Adrian Navarro from the Bully Boy team.

Alex Koblan has been a brand ambassador for Bully Boy for over 2 years and recently took on a full time position running the distillery Tasting Room, events program, and social media/marketing. Her first foray into the beverage industry was with beer which developed into a passion for spirits and all things Bully Boy. Swing by the Tasting Room most nights to catch her in action.

Adrian Navarro is one of the lead bartenders in the Bully Boy Tasting Room and has been with the team since the space opened in April of 2017. Adrian's passion for riffs on classic cocktails and sweet liquid treats can be found all over the Bully Boy menu and he prides himself on ensuring each and every guest has a wonderful and unique experience during their visits. Stop in Thursdays through Sundays to see him in action at the Tasting Room!
