, Schneider's new endeavor focuses on teaching groups how to make classic cocktails. Classes begin with a spirits tasting, then Schneider guides participants through the process of creating three drinks. The classes typically accommodate around 30 guests, though Schneider can work with as many as 50. The cost is $50 per head, plus the cost of materials. Classes can take place at offices, event spaces, or homes.
