What initially started as a fun hobby, turned into a true passion for Mixo Cocktails owner Katie Slonim. When she was looking for an idea for a bachelorette party, she saw plenty of fun options, but nothing quite like a mixology class—and she saw her chance to fill the gap for an in-home mixology experience.
Mixo is an Indianapolis-based cocktail class where Slonim comes to your home and walks you through the history of mixology and the cocktails that you are going to make.
Katie says that 50% of mixology is about the liquid in the glass but the other 50% is the sensory and tactile experience, and the ritual of it as that is what keeps you coming back to the art.
While Mixo is a new business, she is truly making a name for herself in the Indianapolis area among those looking for a way to connect and try something new. Mixo is a great bachelorette parties, a girls’ night in, or any excuse to get together with some of your favorite people.
Here’s how it works: Once you select your date, all you need to do is create your guest list and Slonim will bring everything else to you. That includes the alcohol, decorations, music, mixing materials, and anything else you probably wouldn’t even think of. Each class has a minimum of six people and a 10-person maximum. Another cool aspect of Mixo, which is really thoughtful and inclusive, is that for those who do not drink alcohol, Slonim also offers a Mocktail class.
She just finished a spooky round of Halloween-themed classes and there will be more themes coming in 2022 like Mother’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, and more.
