Black-Owned Houston Distillery Makes Cocktails More Accessible With Eventful Mixology Class

Mixing Your Own Drinks With Style

BY // 03.03.21

What: Exquisite Taste Mobile Bartending and Highway Vodka’s Mixology Class 

Where: Superb Studio

Exquisite Taste owner Meka Lewis taught cocktail enthusiasts how to make four specialty beverages — the Pineapple Express, Herijuana, Purple Haze and Chocolate Martini — while everyone enjoyed tasty drinks featuring hemp-based Highway Vodka. 

The event was COVID-conscious, with each table set for two. Buoyant chatter filled the room where guests were greeted with a lemon-drop martini and cocktail kit. As beginners handcrafted their first tropical drinks of the evening, a DJ pumped up the party with snazzy electric beats.

Eager attendees learned not only the basics behind mixing drinks but also the significance of each ingredient while indulging in American bites such as hamburger sliders, hot wings and an assortment of cheeses. Capping off the evening was a scrumptious dessert cocktail: a blend of vodka and chocolate liqueur, topped with Irish cream.

For one lucky guest, the fun will go on via an exclusive party hosted by Highway Vodka — the night’s highly coveted raffle prize.
