Gin has a complex flavor profile often described as "woodsy" or "like a Christmas tree." But in the capable hands of local bartender Nicole Hassoun, gin is taken to new levels. Get schooled in the juniper berry-flavored grain alcohol with this experience from LivingSocial's 918 F Street: a hands-on gin mixology class, wherein you'll get to sample Nicole's G&T, mix-up and enjoy three classic gin cocktails, and create your very own tonic.

Nicole -- bartender of The Gin Joint, the intimate gin oasis below New Heights Restaurant in Woodley Park -- will lead the class through a lesson covering gin's Dutch origins, the history of tonic, forgotten gin cocktails, and more while you sip four drinks made using Caledonia Spirits's Barr Hill Gin -- called "the perfect gin for gin-haters" by the New York Daily News: gin-and-tonic; Bee's Knees; DC's official cocktail, the Rickey; and a gin-and-tonic made using your own tonic.

Punched up with flavor combinations such as purple basil and pink peppercorn, bartender Nicole Hassoun’s custom tonics have earned the Gin Joint... a following among gin-and-tonic lovers.
