Cocktail masterclass: Bartenders around Australia are offering free cocktail making classes

Finally, something to fill up your Friday nights in isolation!

If you feel like you miss going out for a cheeky drink - don't worry - we've got a way to keep you hydrated while in lockdown. 

Some of Australia's most renown mixologists joined the team behind the Simply Cocktails Facebook Page -which has stepped in to offer a helping hand to some of our local bartenders who have recently lost their gigs by a introducing a new virtual cocktail workshop initiative.

The first virtual cocktail class, called 'Home Five O'Clock-tails' took place on April 1, but now every Friday and Tuesday you and your friends can treat yourselves to (learning how to make) a new drink.

The classes are availble until June 30, so don't stress there will be plenty of opportunities to learn a mix of different drinks.

If you're really keen about getting an authentic teaching experience, download the House Party app - chat to friends on video call while you all stream the mini masterclass on Facebook from your laptops.
