Since October 2015, Tonia Murphy has been mixing up delicious drinks with her bartending business, Bitters ‘n’ Sweet Bartending.
Bitters ‘n’ Sweet Bartending serves cocktails at various events such as wedding receptions, corporate events and private parties. “After bartending private events for the past few years, I’ve looked into different ways to expand my business. I have heard about other cities hosting public mixology classes and thought it would be fun to host in Cincinnati. The city continues to grow and offer different types of entertainment, so this is the perfect opportunity for me to launch the classes,” says Murphy.
The public classes will contain an experience of not only creating the cocktails, but enjoying them after as well.
“When each guest arrives, they will enjoy a welcome cocktail of champagne, wine, etc. and tasty appetizers to settle everyone in. All of the equipment will be set up with a personal station for each guest to create their drinks with fresh ingredients. They will be making a total of 3 cocktails, all pre-planned and created by myself,” says Murphy. “I like to have a little fun, so everyone will have a great time as they experience hands-on the process of making various types of cocktails!”
Guests will get to hone in their bartending skills in hopes of taking the knowledge with them to entertain for years to come. “I’m excited to share this experience and connect with the Cincinnati area on a greater scale with this class,” says Murphy.
