Join PYP for a virtual cocktail class with Greta Harmon!

Greta has spent 14 years serving alcohol to people in a variety of settings. From her earlier days in clubs and dive bars, she graduated to craft cocktails by way of Tiki. Greta helped with the Tiki revival in Pittsburgh. In 2013 she co-hosted South Seas Thursdays at the Tiki Lounge with craft tiki cocktails, has competed in Tiki competitions, and was a principal bartender in the opening of Hidden Harbor in Squirrel Hill. Although tiki and rum (so many rums) hold a special place in her heart, she's spent years mastering the balance of craft cocktails. She tended bar at the circus that was Meat and Potatoes circa 2013-2015 and has also contributed to creative menus such as her rainbow menu at Bar Frenchman and the Wu-Tang inspired menu at Pizzaiolo Primo.

For the virtual Happy Hour we will be celebrating Fri-Yay(!) with 2 classic cocktails Greta loves dearly- a Bramble and a Painkiller. A Bramble is a perfect spring/summer cocktail- it's like a boozy fresh lemonade with berries. The Painkiller is the Pina Colada's cool cousin- it's a fun little upgrade and slightly more balanced. For more cocktails at home you can find Greta on IG and YouTube: MacGyvering Cocktails at Home
