Fancy being a mixologist? Learn how at Blackbird Café’s cocktail making classes and then sip perfectly poured martinis on the couch.

The facts are in: cocktails are delicious and everyone loves them. Finding people to go out for cocktails is easy, but finding a bartender who makes the perfect drink can be a little more challenging.

Luckily, the team at Blackbird Café will help you find great cocktails wherever you are, because they’ll transform you into a master bartender.

The cocktail classes

Learn how to shake, mix and muddle your way into being the life of the party. Taught by in house mixologist and molecular cocktail master, Alessandro Enna, you can finally learn how to master three classic cocktails: Espresso Martini, Sex on the Beach, Mojito or Cosmopolitan. We sat down with Blackbird Café’s resident cocktail connoisseur to get the low down,on shaking it up at Blackbird’s Cocktail Making Classes.

What’s the best soundtrack to making cocktails?

Depends on what you’re making! A Pina Colada pairs with reggae, a Negroni with jazz. When teaching, we keep the music at an ambient level so students can focus on the main event: becoming cocktail masters.

What cocktail do you love teaching to make?

You can’t beat an Espresso Martini. I love watching our students place the iconic three beans on top of a perfectly shaken, frothy martini.

Martini – dirty or with a twist?

Neither, dry is best! 

Why are the Blackbird Cocktail Making classes the best in Sydney?

The cute teacher!  Just kidding. Seriously, we deliver an unforgettable experience. From fun instructions to expert teaching, you’ll love your day at Blackbird Cocktail Making Classes.
