Vena’s Online Mixology

We are fond of flavors, passionate about beverage making and want to share that with you!

We offer online mixology classes through Zoom for all ages and for all reasons – from birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, bachelorette parties, to corporate team building! See overview of class options below. We provide your needs list, a login link to the class, and a kit of thoughtful, small craft ingredients you will need for your class. All that’s left is to stir, shake and muddle!

“We LOVED the class last night! Everyone had a blast and it’s been quite the buzz today. Lots of good memories.
The drinks were great and Steve was fantastic and we really appreciated his expertise and fun stories.”

Please Note: We provide everything for your class except the alcohol. Maine state law prohibits us from shipping it. We will provide the list of spirits you will need. If you don’t currently have them in your home bar and don’t want to commit to purchasing an entire bottle – we suggest Nips as a great option for the classes.

MOCKTAIL PROGRAM CONSULTING

When Vena’s Fizz House began in 2013 as a “modern version” of an old fashioned soda shop, we wanted to offer healthy, delicious, fizzy beverages and mocktails that used old fashioned ingredients that includes bitters, shrubs, tonics, phosphates and fresh fruits, herbs and spices. Little did we know then –  in just a few short years alcohol-free bars and a “sober-curious” trend would place us in the forefront of this movement. As a result, inquiries – both national and international, to help bar owners set up mocktail programs in their venues have flooded in. We’re now offering consulting services to assist with the growing demand. Email info@venasfizzhouse.com for details.

Since 2015 we have offered beverages with or without spirits – where cocktails & mocktails are created equal and the experience of a well-crafted drink is for everyone.

“An exceptional event! I was impressed from start to finish. It began with the welcome sign out front and ended with lovely gift boxes. In between we were showered with inspired lessons, historical tidbits and impeccable service in a fabulously funky atmosphere. The staff’s enthusiasm for mixology is infectious. Thank you Vena’s Fizz House!”
