2024-08-23 – Aquavit Garden Party



August 23 (6:30-8:00 pm CT) 


Hannah Garry 


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


Join instructor Hannah Garry (owner and manager of Blazing Star Cafe in Decorah, Iowa) at a virtual garden party celebrating seasonal produce, Nordic flavors, and aquavit.

In the class, we’ll make three refreshing craft cocktails featuring the traditional Scandinavian spirit, aquavit, with fresh herbs that highlight aquavit’s unique flavor profile. We’ll also make a creamy dill dip, perfect for serving alongside cut vegetables or for creating a smørrebrød platter for the whole party to enjoy. Whether you’re hosting four guests or forty, Garry will give you tips and suggestions for creating a Nordic-inspired crudités spread that your guests will love. You can use the provided drink-and-dip recipes as inspiration for your next gathering or take this class with friends or family and enjoy eating and drinking your coursework after class is over.



A full list of ingredients and spirits will be sent to participants one week prior to class. 

Additional Supplies:

Students will need to provide a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.
