You’re All Set!

The day before your experience you’ll receive an event link in your inbox. In the meantime, check out our Virtual Etiquette Tips or Bar Games

(Yeah, we’d choose the bar games too.)


Prepare your space – Make sure you have a strong internet connection with little background noise if possible

Mute yourself when not speaking – This will eliminate background noise (like cocktail shaking!) that makes it difficult for others to hear the speaker.

Be sure to come prepared – Come with ingredients and supplies ready! Set yourself up in the kitchen where you have ample counter space and access to a sink.

Please come 10 minutes early – This way we can get to know each other and start right on time!
