Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping, “Liquor is quicker, but get me a single-malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!” Be like Ol' Winnie with this Groupon.

During classes held every other week on Saturdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and Mondays from 8 to 9:30 p.m., Quench's award-winning staff demonstrates how to make three or four unique, classic cocktails and give students a chance to devise their own concoction using new mixology skills – with the winner earning a spot on the Quench menu.
At Quench, owner Michael Holstein and barman Matt Allred aim to live up to the hype stemming from the Favorite New Restaurant award they earned from the Restaurant Association of Maryland. They, along with their team of chefs, go beyond simply making food and mixing drinks—they prepare artful dinner specialties and unique, out-of-the-box cocktails. Though their meal creations arise out of seemingly simple ingredients—local produce, house-ground meats—the team crafts wildly creative send-ups of typical pub fare in addition to traditional comfort foods. Baby back ribs are braised for days in homemade cherry cola, and Natty Boh beer cheese, local crab, and nacho cheese chips add local flavor to mac 'n' cheese. Quench also plates healthy fare such as herb-roasted chickpeas and edamame hummus served with local cucumbers and apples, all complemented by inventive cocktails, and the seasonal dessert menu includes house-made donuts and gluten-free flourless chocolate cake. The drinks, with clever names such as Sex in the Burbs and Django Juice, draw on a palette of blood-orange juice, house-made foams, and uniquely infused spirits. Mixology classes prepare students to delight party guests, and Quench also hosts events such as Saturday and Sunday brunches scored by live music, and weekday lunches that feature 10 dishes priced at $10.
