The Diageo Bar Academy will host an online low-and-no cocktails masterclass next week, which will be presented by leading bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana and Diageo Reserve global cocktailian Lauren Mote.

Diageo Bar Academy’s A Guide to No & Low Cocktails masterclass will be held virtually on Wednesday 17 February from 4pm to 5pm GMT. The online seminar will offer insight into how on-trade venues can develop their low-and-no offering.

Chetiyawardana, founder of award-winning bar Lyaness, and Mote will look at the growing low- and no-alcohol category, and showcase cocktail recipes to attract drinkers looking for alcohol-free alternatives.

The workshop will cover why the conversation around low-and-no drinks is important, how venues can use their bar and culinary techniques to create innovative alcohol-free serves, and reveal some of the best practises for developing zero-ABV cocktails on menus.

Participants will also receive downloadable content with tips from the session, and an official Diageo Bar Academy Certificate, free of charge.

Furthermore, Portuguese and Spanish speakers will be able to view the masterclass in real-time translation to their native languages.
