Treaty Oak Distilling is opened every weekend to offer you cocktails made from the Treaty Oak spirits lineup — including Starlite Vodka, Waterloo Gin and Red-Handed Bourbon Whiskey — but next weekend, the distillery is hosting a class to teach you how to make these cocktails yourself.
The cocktail class on Dec. 19 is being taught by Treaty Oak’s cocktail guru Matt Moody, which means you’ll be in good hands if you’ve never mixed up a drink before. He’ll teach you how to make two classics: an Old Fashioned featuring the bourbon and a daiquiri featuring Treaty Oak Rum. His “fun and informative session will explore the history, the process and the methods needed to rock these recipes at home,” according to a press release.
For $38, you’ll also get a light food buffet paired with the drinks, a branded Treaty Oak rocks glass and recipe cards of each of the featured cocktails. Or, if you really want to go all out, upgrade your ticket for $117. That’ll get you a full bag of professional cocktail tools and a bottle of one of Treaty Oak’s clear spirits — you can choose which one. Reserve your spot ahead of time here.
Once the 2 to 5 p.m. cocktail class is over, stay for an evening of games, cocktails and live music from Sophia Johnson, who’s performing at the rickhouse from 4:30 to 8 p.m. The Treaty Oak ranch is located at 16604 Fitzhugh Rd., in Dripping Springs.
Treaty Oak isn’t the only booze maker in Dripping Springs ready to turn you into your own home bartender. For anyone who prefers vodka, Deep Eddy Vodka is offering another “Dive in to Mixology” class on Thursday. This one is $37.92 and gets you small bites, cocktails and a souvenir glass to take home. Tickets to the class are here.
