Mixologist Brian Galati of Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort in Lakeview shows ABC7 how to make three tropical cocktails -- pina coladas, mojitos, and rum punch.

With the warm weather finally here, many people are entertaining more outside. Whether it's a beach or pool party, or a get together with family and friends at home, a tropical cocktail can liven up any summertime soiree.

Every Thursday in June, guest mixologists from The Chicago Bartending School will train students at Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort, unclefatty.com, in the heart of Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood. They'll be teaching how to make everything from the perfect Mai Tai and classic Margarita to more contemporary and creative concoctions. $10 gets you entry to the hour-long class, instruction from The Chicago Bartending School teachers and all the materials you need. Of course, participants are encouraged to sample their creations at the end of class.

    The class schedule is as follows:
  • Thursday, June 2nd at 8:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 9th at 8:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 16th at 8:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 23rd at 8:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 30th at 8:00 p.m.
