Like cocktails? Like devouring them at one of the Valley's favourite hangouts? No, they're not trick questions. If you answered yes to both — and we're certain that you did — then you're going to love Dutch Courage Officers' Mess returning boozy masterclasses.

Not content with wowing thirsty folks with its drinks list, the Alfred Street hotspot wants to impart its beverage-shaking wisdom to its patrons. So, on select Saturdays each month, it enlists its bartenders to share the tricks of the trade in themed afternoon sessions.

Each class covers everything from the tools you need to the basics of cocktail structure, as well as the history of alcoholic concoctions and tips for making your own recipes, too. The drinks change each time, with 2021 lineup so far showing you how to whip up a twisted spanish maids (on January 23), mojitos (January 30), breakfast martinis (February 13) and gin classics (February 27).

Whatever the subject, we're betting that a certain clear spirit will feature among the ingredients; this is a bar that boasts more than 150 gins on site, after all. Times vary each session, too, but you'll generally be able to head along at 1.45pm and 3.30pm.

Your ticket also includes two cocktails, plus a house wine, beer or spirit upon arrival.
