The Langham, New York Introduces New Cocktail Classes

The Langham, New York, Fifth Avenue has announced a new experience at Bar Fiori, the hotel’s destination bar and lounge. Pete Stanton, head bartender at Bar Fiori, will be showing guests how to be their own mixologist with a series of Cocktail Classes this Spring. Launching on April 28, these classes open to the public for a price of $75 per person.

The first three class themes are:

  • Negroni Workshop (April 28), which will focus on working with Italian bitter liqueurs, specifically amaro, and will include a history about how bitters are made and the variations on this classic cocktail that exist, which will inspire attendees to come up with their own creative versions.
  • The Daiquiri and Tiki Drinks (May 19), which will give insight into how rum has played a part in American history, and the birth of both the daiquiri and of tiki culture as a trend, with lessons on the classic daiquiri but also how to put your own tiki stamp on it to make it a signature cocktail.
  • American Whiskey Classics (June 16), an ideal class for Father’s Day, which will trace back through the history of American-made whiskeys, including an in-depth look at regional styles, and a tutorial on how to make the two drinks that every bartender aims to perfect – the Old Fashioned and the Manhattan.

The $75 ticket price covers the cost of participation in the class, and includes complimentary small bites prepared by Chef Scott Schneider and Pastry Chef Rachel Pancho and specifically paired with the cocktail class theme. Space is limited to 15 participants per class.
