Fall Liqueur-Making Workshop with Sarah Cain

Fall Liqueur-Making Workshop with Sarah Cain

Saturday, October 19th, 2019, 2-3:30pm
Class is $45 ($30 class fee + $15 for the materials kit)
RSVP required –> sprucevallejo@gmail.com
Class size limited.

Liqueurs & cordials are a great way to preserve your backyard fruit or favorite farmers market fruit. They make great gifts, and are an excellent excuse to use those beautiful glass decanters and liqueur glasses you own (or purchase them at thrift and gift shops)!

And FALL – prime holiday gift preparation time – is here! During this class you’ll make either a Limoncello (Lemon with a vodka base), Spiced Pear or Cranberry Liqueur. We’ll also discuss ‘aftercare’ for your liqueurs & other simple equipment you’ll need later on.

This is a hands on make-n-take style class with a liberal dose of beverage lore thrown in, too! You instructor Sarah has been making and teaching liqueur-making for 20 years. She’s made liqueurs professionally for restaurants, and has won multiple ribbons for them at the Alameda County Fair. She’s also a former organic farmer & a former sommelier.

Included Materials Kit (to make one liqueur):
1/2 Gallon wide-mouth glass jar with lid
Fruit of your choice (Lemon, Pear or Cranberry – please choose one per kit)
Simple Syrup
Instructional booklet

Here is what you should bring to the class:
Muddler (if you have one)
1 750ml bottle alcohol (We will let you know what to bring – depending on which liqueur you are making – miid-priced, not super expensive or cheap)
Cutting board
Small paring knife (if you are making the pear liqueur)
Peeler (if you are making Limoncello)
Your questions!

RSVP required, please email sprucevallejo@gmail.com. Class size limited!
In your RSVP email, please specify which fruit you would like: Lemon, Pear or Cranberry

Note: Class repeats Sunday October 20th at 1-2:30pm
–> AND there is an Advanced Class on Sunday Oct 20th from 3:30-5:30pm where we will make BOTH a Caribbean Coffee Liqueur & a Spiced Walnut Liqueur. Check out our Events Listings for more info.
