While you sip an assortment of her handcrafted cocktails, master mixologist Revae Schneider explains the basics of making a seasonal drink. She'll discuss how certain fruits and flavors can blend in unexpected ways. Schneider will also cover simple ratios and techniques for foolproof cocktail construction. After that, you’ll put her advice into practice and use fresh ingredients to create your own signature drink. Each workshop is limited to a small number of guests so that everyone gets one-on-one feedback from Revae Schneider.
The evening will include:
- Handcrafted artisanal cocktails
- Fresh ingredients for mixing your own cocktails during the workshop
- Expert instruction from Revae Schneider
These intimate, interactive cocktail workshops start at 7 p.m. and end at 9 p.m., with workshops available on weekdays throughout August, and September.

Revae Schneider's career began in fashion. But when she stepped behind the bar, she realized a great cocktail produced the same effect as a beautiful dress—it made people happier, more confident, even a bit bolder. After honing her mixology skills at Gilt Bar and Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar, she opened Femme du Coupe, which offers mixology classes, custom cocktail design, and corporate brand consultation. In 2011, Eater longlisted her for its Bartender of the Year award, and in 2012, Zagat named her one of Chicago's rising culinary stars in its annual 30 Under 30 list.
