Either your liquor cabinet survived the Dust Bowl or your $#!^ is straight old.
Raise the bar with help from Femme du Coupe.
Schneider starts by ascertaining your bar’s contents and your poison. Then, she takes you to a local shop to stock up on essentials (real lemons, liqueurs that complement your liquor, bitters). At home, you’ll learn to make simple syrup (every bar needs it) and a few cocktails of your choice. Schneider encourages stirring and sipping to understand flavor complexity.
If your barware needs a boost, la femme will source vintage glassware (collins and rocks glasses, cobbler shakers, jiggers, strainers); she’ll even hook you up with a friend who creates custom bar carts.
And that’s some booze you can use.
