Class participants will learn how to make three easy cocktails with ingredients they might have on hand, including the Sou'Wester Mint Julep, the French 69 and the Naughty Toddy. Carlton will also show students how to give one of the cocktails a romantic spin in time for Valentine's Day.

Priced at $25 per person (not including tax) the class will be offered from Saturday, February 13, Sunday, February 14 and Monday, February 15 from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. each day. The price includes three cocktails and an assortment of Sou'Wester's sun porch snacks. Sou'Wester is located at 1330 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington, DC.
