Chicago Mixology Classes

There’s nothing like a good mixed drink when you’re out celebrating and partying on the weekends in the city.

However, when you think about all the money you end up spending on drinks weekend after weekend, it adds up.

What if you were able to both hang out with your friends on the weekend and learn how to make your own drinks? (Which will be much cheaper for you in the long run.)

Mixology classes have quickly become a popular activity for all occasions. You can now learn how to make your favorite drinks and host a fun night in.

Get mixing with this list of the mixology classes!
