When it comes to drinking, Radio Bar has taught many that there’s a much better, tastier way to get tipsy than the way most of us learned in college. Nestled in Miami Beach’s swanky south-of-fifth neighborhood, Radio Bar is an intimate place driven by locals with a taste for laid-back fun and out-of-the-box libations. Once a month, though, the hotspot transforms into a pop-up mixology school where Head Bartender Teddy Collins and his team pick a type and brand of alcohol and lead guests in a hands-on mixing demonstration.
Last month’s Tune-In with Teddy bartending class centered around Pisco Portón. Collins and the Radio Bar team walked guests through recipes for a Pisco Mule (Pisco Portón, lime juice, simple syrup, ginger beer) and a Pisco Sour (Pisco Portón, lemon and lime juice, simple syrup, 1 egg white). After the class, participants took home gift bags with a complimentary Pisco Portón branded glass, a recipe card for both drinks, a bottle stopper and a miniature vial of the Peruvian grape-based white spirit.

The classes are free with RSVP and limited to 20 people. They usually take place the last week of each month from 7 – 8 p.m. Details about August’s class, including date/time, featured liquor and surprise guest have still not been released, so stay tuned by visiting radiosouthbeach.com/events/
