To be able to bluff a spirit-forward cocktail with even a fraction of the skill displayed at Beretta would be an accomplishment. It's not out of the question, since, starting in January, Beretta master barman Ryan Fitzgerald will share tips and techniques via monthly cocktail instructional sessions. Three themed Monday evenings are planned so far, tackling the topics of whiskey, tequila, and gin, respectively. Expect to come away with an understanding of how to work with these ingredients in general, as well as with some of Beretta's specific secrets.
