Calling all inspiring mixologists. Juniper Cocktail Lounge at Park MGM is now offering the Juniper Cocktail Lab series, where cocktail connoisseurs and novices can learn the art of creating the perfect drink.
Led by a member of MGM Resorts; mixology team, the two-hour, 15-person course will offer guests a look inside the history of cocktail culture and a crash course on the “golden ratios” used as the foundation of any great drink. The master mixologist will guide trainees in creating three classic cocktails, behind the fully stocked bar. Each master mixologist will share tips and tricks including how to properly use bar equipment, as well as a behind-the-scenes look into beverage operations and menu development at one of Vegas’ top lounge destinations.
“One of my favorite parts of Juniper Cocktail Lab is that guests can continue the experience even after class ends,” said MGM Resorts International Corporate Mixologist Craig Schoettler in a statement, who developed the curriculum. “It’s intentionally designed to give everyone the necessary tools, resources and knowledge to easily craft exceptional libations at home or share their new talent with friends at their next get-together.”
Juniper Cocktail Lab is now accepting reservations for its May 18 and June 15 classes, held from 1 p.m. - 3 pm. Each participant will receive a souvenir booklet of the curriculum along with a mixology kit, complete with a shaker, strainer, jigger, tweezers, a citrus peeler and bar spoon.
