Born to Rum

Follow Last Drop Bar’s mustachioed spirit guide Travis Nass on Sunday, June 15, as he journeys through time and tastes in the pursuit of rum. The small, 10-person mixology class will go over the spirit’s long and unique history, all while exploring different brands, styles, and recipes -- and ensuring plenty of time for questions from the crowd.

However, the best part of the whole class comes when Nass will mix up two different rum cocktails off-the-cuff based on what the cocktail students like to imbibe. If those cocktails are anything like what he typically mixes up at his bar, the drinks will surely be well-balanced and beautifully refined.

The rum-centric mixology class will take place at the Last Drop Bar at the Hermosa Inn located at 5532 North Palo Cristi Road in Paradise Valley beginning at 2 p.m. You can reserve your spot for $30 by calling 602-955-7878.
