What to expect

You and Kat Dean will meet in your home (over video chat) to shake, stir, taste, share stories, and delve into the world of cocktails. You will not only have a great time but also acquire valuable skills that will last well beyond your time together.


This Delicious Experience is not a pre-recorded video, big Zoom gathering, or the kind of online course where your eyes glaze over; it is a one-of-a-kind private experience where you and Kat Dean will work together to create something amazing together.


After booking, you will communicate directly with Kat Dean to adapt the experience to your tastes, interests, skill level, and alcohol preferences.


Prior to the online cocktail class we will provide you with a Zoom link and any assistance you may need to connect to the experience from your laptop, tablet, or phone.

Connect up to 2 screens to share the experience with friends or family. Contact us for discounted rates on additional screens.
