SF Mixology

SF Mixology founder Shawn Refoua blended his ten-year experience as a bartender into social, educational events that bring bartending methodology and cocktail mixology into the 21st century. With an eye toward libation history, the school's interactive classes range from basic and advanced mixology courses to in-depth lessons on specific liquors and the evolution of the cocktail through the past two centuries and the decade when swizzle sticks were outlawed. Each class complements the goals of cocktail party hosts, as well as aspiring or continually learning bartenders, who can learn and practice essential behind-the-bar techniques while brushing up on flavor theory and emerging recipe methodologies. The laid-back classes include plenty of sample sips and enthusiastic toasts to newfound friends.
