Shepherd PTO Spring Fling “Shaken & Stirred” Virtual Cocktail Making Class – Thurs, May 13 at 8 pm

We will be mixing up two different cocktails — a Strawberry Smash and a Bees Knees — both of which are a perfect way to ease us into the warm weather. Each ticket purchase will gain the adults in your household access to the cocktail class which will be hosted virtually. In addition, we will offer cocktail kits that will give you everything you need to mix up two of each of these delicious cocktails. Should you choose to raid your home bar and provide your own ingredients, you will receive a “shopping list” prior to the event to make sure you have time to gather everything you need. Get your tickets here.
