The Art of Mixology


Return to Courses

Unlike longer and more expensive courses, The Art of Mixology course won't teach you to memorize drink recipes. Rather, we focus on learning and understanding the essential skills behind making any alcoholic drink, even frozen drinks, cocktails, daiquiris, and layered shots. Once you've mastered these skills you can make any drink imaginable and memorization will come with time and practice. You'll learn bar setup, how to distinguish between different alcohols and mixers, and how to use all bar equipment. The course emphasizes hands-on training; students make a full range of drinks under the supervision and guidance of an experienced Boston-area bartender. After completing the first session, you'll receive Harvard's "Art of Mixology" certificate—veritable proof of your training.
