    Spice up your next house party with some new drink recipes!  The Occidental Grill & Seafood is hosting an “Introduction to Cocktails -- Mastering the Classics” class.

    The event is sponsored by the Museum of the American Cocktail.

    You’ll learn the general history of cocktails by taking a closer look at four classics -- the Old Fashioned, the Manhattan, the martini and the daiquiri.

    Learn how to perfectly mix each of these concoctions, and how to come up with a special spin all your own.

    You’ll also get to enjoy appetizers cooked by the chef at Occidental Grill.

    Tickets are $45 per person if you pre-register and $50 at the door. You can sign up at museumoftheamericancocktail.org.
