Award-winning Don Sueños tequila will guide a lesson through different issues distillers face when designing these products all over the globe. All of the ingredients used are made sustainably and even benefit bats, our winged mammalian agave pollinators. Studio Life, $60

While you're talking about the various tannins and tasting notes, snack on small items from Fiasco's kitchen, like meat, cheese, and bruschetta with South American flare. Claret/Fiasco, $25
