Augustine Cocktail Classes

This practical training gives everyone the opportunity to cooperate closely with our chief bartender and his bar team. You will discover the beauty of the art of working behind the bar counter and the fun of mixing cocktails, develop dexterity skills in the basics of bartending and taste all the cocktails that you´ve learned to prepare according to the eras in which they were invented.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

MODERN ERA (1998 – Present days)

The Modern era of cocktails marks the return to the roots of bartending and the adaptation of current technologies, also applied in the kitchen. Bartenders rediscover the classic cocktails and the methods of masters who stood behind bar counters in old times. Drink mixology is practiced all over the world and modern masters of cocktails devour the pages of traditional recipes found in dust-covered books so their own tinctures and bitters regain the taste of lost and forgotten spirits. The combination of bartending methods and ingredients from the kitchen enable to create ever renewed kinds of cocktails.

PREPARED COCKTAILS:
Penicillin Cocktail (Scotch Whisky based / Shake)
Gin Basil Smash (Gin based / Shake)
Chartreuse Swizzle (Green Chartreuse based / Swizzle)

******

DISCO ERA (1970 – 1998)

The counterculture of the movements in the 1960s enabled many great social changes and reductions of inequalities. It also gave birth to other forms of relaxing substances and non-conformist ways of living. The old idea of Cocktail parties became obsolete and many social codes underwent a change. Cocktails were still drunk but their consumption became much less ritual. Classic cocktails fell into disfavor as something that parents used to drink, and they were replaced by fruit or sweet drinks.

PREPARED COCKTAILS:
Cosmopolitan (Vodka lemon based / Shake)
Margarita (Tequila based / Shake)
Bobby Burns (Bourbon / Straight)

******

TIKI ERA (1940 – 1970)

Tiki culture is a 20th century theme used in Polynesian-style restaurants and clubs originally in the United States and, to a lesser extent, all around the world. Although inspired by Tiki carvings and mythology, the connection is loose and stylistic, being an American form and not Polynesian fine art form. If you want to prepare great tiki cocktails, start with rum. But rum is not used in all tiki cocktails. Some of them use gin, Scottish or other whiskies, pisco and other brandy, or tequila. Tiki cocktails are inspired by the tropics, and since the rum is very popular there, you should start with it.

PREPARED COCKTAILS:
Mai Tai (Rum based / Shake)
Corpse Reviver #2 (Gin based / Stir)
Fog Cutter (Cognac based / Roll)

******

PROHIBITION AND POST-PROHIBITION ERA (1920 – 1950)

Alcohol prohibition in the United States in the 1920s and the 1930s is one of the infamous eras of modern American history. This period, which became a golden era for cocktails, is associated with gangsters, smugglers, illegal alcohol vendors and illegal saloons “speakeasies”. The so-called “Noble Experiment” led many American bartenders to the gangland or to the decision to leave the country. Some bartenders preferred to ply their trade in London, Paris, Havana or Tijuana, rather than give it up or become criminals.

PREPARED COCKTAILS:
Old Fashioned (Rhye Whisky based / Straight)
Sazerac (Cognac based / Shake)
Bloody Mary (Vodka based / Roll)

******

CLASSIC ERA (1885 – 1920)

Bartenders of this era introduced new, lighter and simpler forms of cocktails. The cocktail preparation in the shakers was replaced by typical methods of mixing, adding carbon dioxide to the cocktails. At the same time, there was a
boom in glass products, bartending tools and a rise of consumption of vermouth and fruit juices in the cocktails. Thus, cocktails started to be mixed with spirits such as whisky or gin. Due to the ravages of phylloxera in Europe, traditional
spirits were replaced by American and Scottish whiskies and this increased the use of London Dry Gin.

PREPARED COCKTAILS:
Martini (Gin based / Stir (Always))
Punch (Rum based / Straight)
Morning Glory Fizz (Scotch based / Shake)

THE COST OF ONE COURSE: 1700 CZK / PERSON
SPECIAL PACKAGE FOR COMPLETE ERA COURSE: 270 EUROS/PERSON


DO NOT HESITATE AND COME TO MIX YOUR OWN COCKTAIL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Groups of 5 and more persons will get a special 10% discount of the total price.
