Blue Box Bartender Spills His Secrets Weekly

Harmel in class expounding on his creation, The Hugo


All those drinks, doled out in respectable portions to keep students’ attention from wandering, are included in the $25 course fee. Interested tipplers should plan to show up well in advance, as the class I attended was filled to capacity before its 6 p.m. start time, and Harmel offers “no assurances” regarding seating. Blue Box is considering adding a second evening if the buzz continues to grow.

Harmel has always been at the vanguard of the “star-tender” craze in South Texas, and maybe that’s where his prickly reputation comes from — he was treating cocktails as an art back when most thought bartenders were little more than glorified alcohol waiters. This seminar helps dispel that notion, not only serving up some tasty drinks, but also demonstrating that there’s plenty worth knowing behind all that booze.
