Mixology Class with Elle Talk

So, another class at the Toast & Twirl Workshop was Mixology.
 Frankly, I only drink a handful of drinks, so it'll be cool to learn about some alternatives.
 She was so thoughtful to put together a list for a basic bar, explain the spirits and the type of glass.  A lot of great tips.
 This is Michelle, Elle for short, lifestyle blogger, Mixology teacher.
 First drink: Berry Smashed, you do smash the berries (which are strawberries, blueberries, blackberries) with lemon, whiskey.  And even the garnish is pretty and say PARTY!  I'm not a big whiskey fan, but this tasted good.
 Next up: a Tiki Drink... cool, never had Curacao before.
 ooooh, aaaaahhh...
 This is a cross between Tiki and a Moscow Mule, so it's a Tiki Mule.  Actually, without the Ginger Beer, switch the Vodka with rum, you do have a really good drink already.  But to make it 'mule' the ginger beer kick it up a notch.  Pretty cool and delish!
The last drink: Secret Garden, because it has some floral in it.  Not only that, this is the first time I've ever used baking dust (edible glitter) into a drink.  It does pour with sparkle for sure.
 We made 3 drinks in an hour or so.  Not bad, since between drinks a bunch of us went and take pictures as they prep for the next drink.  It was super fun, well thought out and have education.  Like variation of whiskey, vodka, and gin.  Luckily, we had lunch before class, so got some padding before the drinks.  It's so nice to learn some different and classy drinks, so I don't have to be boring when I go out anymore.
