The craft cocktail is as much a part of Capitol Hill’s food and drink culture as an excellent pull of espresso. The next two weekends, you have the opportunity to learn from one of the neighborhood’s leading purveyors of the craft just in time to spread the Hill’s culture far and wide during your holiday travels. Or, you can just mix up some excellent drinks right here at home, also. Seattle Central’s Experimental College is teaming up with Liberty Bar’s Andrew Friedman for two one-day classes at the 15th Ave E bar. They’ll cost you $60 and $55 a pop but you’ll get two hours of hands-on training in the fine arts of Santa’s Sauces and Naughty and Nice New Years Mixes. You can register online here. Last we checked, there was still room for more of Andrew’s little helpers to sign up as of Friday afternoon.
The Experimental College will offer two single-sessions holiday drink mixology courses with Andrew Friedman, bartender and owner of Liberty Bar on Capitol Hill later this month. He will teach students to mix both classic and original holiday cocktails.
The courses will be offered at Liberty Bar at 517 15th Ave E. The first course, Santa’s Secret Sauces, will take place on Sunday, Dec. 21 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The second course, Naughty and Nice New Years Mixes, will occur on Sunday, Dec. 28 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. A fee of $60 is required for the class and participants must be 21 or older.

Meanwhile, Liberty reports its Tiki Kitty is missing! Hopefully it and the Harvard Ave Baby Jesus turn up before Christmas.
