Be Your Own Bartender

With a little help from Max Messier and Lauren Myerscough, founders of the New Orleans–based mixer company Cocktail & Sons, guests can hone their skills with a cocktail shaker. The pair will break down the basics of blending custom simple syrups. Then, they’ll demonstrate using the syrups in single servings of classic cocktails such as the old-fashioned and the Tom Collins as well as how to scale up to punches when hosting a crowd.
