Learn how to be a mixologist with Bob Peters

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I’d really like to learn how to be a mixologist today?”

Well, you’re in luck because this weekend you and your friends can join Bob Peters at Earl’s Grocery for his very popular mixology lab.

Peters, from The Punch Room, shares his cocktail knowledge to all in attendance on the second Saturday of every month. Each class has a different topic so he’ll teach attendees about the differences between bourbon and rye, or about how to make the perfect beer cocktail.

//><!--In the past, he has taught us how to make variations of a mint julep and how to make flavored simple syrups.//--><!

Pisco Sour. Fresh lemon, lime, simple syrup on the bottom & on top is a homemade St Germaine foam. All my Peruvian guests have given me their seal of approval & that means a lot!

This Saturday at 2:30 p.m., boozy students will learn all about punch. From the definition and history to a demonstration on how to make a simple punch for your next party, the hour-long class will prove to be quite the learning experience.

My advice, head to Earl’s early for lunch or coffee and claim your spot.


The class fills up fast and you don’t want to be left out of all the fun. Trust me.
