a 2 week Virtual Cocktails & Beverages Course
There are many aspects to healthy eating that are given continual care and nurturing. Whether that be sticking to consistent ratios of fats vs carbs or making sure to eat a salad or drink a green smoothie every day. Sometimes, everything we put into our mouth is for a reason and specific to our health goals.
On the other hand, beverages are often overlooked and on “cheat” days, some folks will turn to old standards like cheap wine and canned beer to help them let loose and be less rigid. But these poor quality beverages are often filled with a variety of less than optimal ingredients that can really put a decline in your overall health. And when they are consumed on a daily basis, it's even less optimal.
This cocktails and mocktails course will teach you how to take seasonal ingredients and everyday staples and turn them into delicious condiments for your beverages. Whether containing alcohol or not, we will help you spruce up your bevies to epic status! Learn how to make bitters, syrups, infusions, and more to create the perfect beverage you can enjoy any time of year.
Incorporate fresh, seasonal ingredients in your cocktails
"Frank is a naturally dynamic instructor who uses a multi-sensory approach to teaching. Therefore, he made it possible to acquire these skills — under his direction — through whichever learning style suited each individual best. For example, every lesson involved Franky talking about what he was doing, while doing what he was teaching, then allowing us to perform the task, and lastly (best of all) tasting what we made! Additionally, he made himself available to answer questions at all times—one of the most approachable human beings I have ever met."

Chef Frank’s Food Philosophy
My passion for food and drink stems from the desire to live a vigorous and harmonious lifestyle, one that is closely connected to nature. In order to be on top of my game, day in and day out, I choose to eat the foods, drink high quality water and beverages that will allow my body to excel, as well as my family's, toward greatness. The things we put into our body will either encourage or hinder our bodies ability to adapt to the outside world.
With learning to craft beverages and cook wholesome meals, utilizing fresh, nutrient dense ingredients, you can begin to shift your body and mind towards balance. Creating from scratch is one of our greatest allies when we have the desire to eat, look, and feel good.
Without focusing on one particular diet, my culinary inspiration starts with fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients and utilizing a melange of dietary principles — including traditional diets, wild foods, Clean eating, raw food, farm to table and nose to tail style of food preparation.
WEEK 1: We start by creating condiments that will help fill your pantry with flavorful additions to any beverage. Learn traditional recipes that can be crafted using an assortment of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices.
Utilizing various wild foods and seasonal fruit, I teach you how to make homemade alcoholic beverages like meads, cordials, and wine.
