The team at Spiffy Dapper is opening up their cocktail masterclasses and bringing it into your living room so that you can learn how to make great cocktails at home and impress the hell out of your friends.
You will get a kit delivered to your home along with the tools, ingredients and garnishes needed to make the cocktails. The team will Zoom / Skype into your living room and guide you along to make the drinks.
PS: You can also have this masterclass in person at The Spiffy Dapper. We will host you at the bar and you can learn how to make the drinks in person.
What's In The Kit?
Each kit has the ingredients for two different cocktails: booze, garnishes, tools and a recipe book for you to try at home.
You will be taught the basics for each style of cocktail and you will learn how to make the cocktails the proper way at home.
You have a choice of four different kits, to master 8 different classic cocktails.

What Tools are Included in the Kit?
Each kit comes with a bar spoon, a jigger for measuring, and a vessel for stirring or shaking your drink. These are the tools you’ll need to execute the cocktails.
Who will be Conducting the Sessions?
The primary instructor will be Abhishek C George, the founder of Spiffy Dapper and Oriental Elixir. Expect irreverent banter and an in-depth yet laid back approach to cocktails. PSA: He does tend to swear like an old sea dog.
You can also opt to have your session with Vojta Bazant, whose last gig was heading the bar program at Bread Street Kitchen for Gordon Ramsay. Expect a more technical and refined approach to the craft of making great cocktails.
What are the Available Timings?
We have a schedule for the sessions that will be sent to you via email after the purchase. But we are pretty flexible about it. So if you do not find a timing that suits you, just reach out and we will make the timings work for you the best we can.
You can do a session just by yourself or with friends across different screens who have purchased the same session.
How Many People Can Join In?
We can host up to 15 screens at a time on Zoom. So you can get your friends to join in with you. We can deliver the kits to multiple locations and everyone can join the masterclass from the comfort of their own homes. We can do more than 15, but the experience is best enjoyed with groups of 15 and below.
If you are attending in-person at the venue, then the maximum number of participants is capped at 5 based on the recommendations from the Ministry of Health.
PS: The guests on one stream must all be using the same kits so that the masterclass can proceed smoothly.
How Can I Make More Cocktails at Home?
You have the option to purchase an advanced kit along with your masterclass (choose from the product options above). The kit will allow you to create around 15 different cocktails at home.
