Chris Thomas is a master mixologist known for his talent in creating delicious concoctions. He began his career at The Basement Sydney, refining his craft before moving on to consult for Soho House London. Eventually, he returned to Sydney, where he became fascinated with the unique flavors of native Australian ingredients and Ansett airline trolleys.
At Tippled, Thomas has a simple philosophy: use what's around you, when it's around you. He sources his ingredients locally and forages for them at their peak, emphasizing seasonality to produce cocktails that are both elegant and uncomplicated. By doing so, he creates drinks that are in harmony with the environment, encouraging us to appreciate the natural world around us.
In addition to his skill in mixology, Thomas's interest in history also gives him a unique perspective on the uses of alcohol. He enjoys exploring the humorous side of alcohol's role in history, and his knowledge adds an entertaining element to his creations.

Overall, Thomas's commitment to using high-quality, locally sourced ingredients, his deep respect for the environment, and his humor and insight into the history of alcohol make Tippled's Sydney cocktail class a must-attend experience.

We had such a great! The perfect Valentine’s Day activity

We learnt so much and had such a great afternoon!

Gary Buckmaster Feb 2024


Great and engaging class. Chris, our teacher, was very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. The recipes were a bit advanced for most of us to try at home.

Teacher's response

Hey Gary, Thanks for the review, glad you had a good time.

Though the syrups and infusions we used are somewhat advanced, they can be an inspiration to create syrups to use at home. Alternatively as they were twists on classics, the simpler classic still follows the rules of balance that we covered.


If you have and questions while on this journey of discovery, please shoot me a line.

Adrienne Williams Jan 2024


We loved the class and Chris was a great host. Great cocktails with native ingredients. Easy to chat and connect with other guests. Drinks carts were a nice touch. Would have been great to have the recipes in a digital file for easy re-creation at home.

It was exceptional! I really enjoyed myself! Cute for a little birthday surprise for some friends! The guy was really lovely and welcoming! SUPER DUPER

Sade Mills Jun 2023


The class was really fun and Chris was a great teacher who was passionate and full of energy. He has so much knowledge about the native plants and the origins of the drinks that he makes, and it was really interesting to hear about how he infuses the alcohol himself. The class was small which meant that we got to take our time making and enjoying each drink. The drinks were all lovely and the location was also great. I would definitely recommend!

Good cocktails, fun flavours, teacher was fun. Location very dark and cold! A warm cosy venue with better lighting would be nice.

Thanks Chris for a great class! My partner and I had a great time learning about native fauna and berries that were infused to make unique, one-of-a-kind cocktails. We had a terrific two hours working with new ingredients to reimagine espresso martinis, margaritas, daiquiris and more! Would 100% recommend this class to anyone looking for a great night

Aashna Bhatia Apr 2023


Was such a good experience, Chris was a great teacher and the cocktails we made were really good!

Monica Aftab Apr 2023


Would have preferred to see cocktails being made from common readily available ingredients which we can reproduce rather than the host’s homemade mixtures and alcohol.

A great taster of using native ingredients in interesting ways! Keen to incorporate some lilly pilly syrup in my future cocktails :)

Chris is a fabulous presenter. Not only does he know his mixes, but has a brilliant casual style. He makes his own infusions and gives ideas on what to try at home. The vouchers were a gift and I can’t think of a better way to spend an evening.

Native Cocktail Making Class review by Alan Zurvas - Sydney

Lena Etuk Feb 2023


As always, Chris never disappoints! This is such a great class. You learn from a real expert - he's an expert of native botanicals as well as an expert in how to make incredibly well-balanced cocktails. Not only is Chris an expert, but he's funny and really engaging. This is my second class with him, and I'll keep bringing friends along to more classes. I learn something each time. The cocktails are also really tasty - it's impossible to leave this class unhappy.
Thanks so much for your warm hospitality, Chris!

4 delicious cocktails, 2 hours of laughs and good vibes, and 1 seriously knowledgeable teacher made for a fantastic way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Chris was super friendly from the outset, making sure everyone felt comfortable and welcome before jumping right in to the fun stuff.
The class was held on the cutest little rooftop herb garden in the heart of Redfern, but never fear, there's an indoor option in case of any rain (we had to retreat inside for the second half of the class).
Chris was a wealth of cocktail, alcohol and Aussie native knowledge, mixing plenty of interesting history with his deep understanding of, and passion for, native and sustainable Australian ingredients. We left the class feeling very inspired (not to mention equipped with the skills!) to incorporate a native ingredient twist into future home cocktails - thanks Chris!

Great girls’ night out! Absolutely loved the native ingredients that just lifted the cocktail classics. Chris was knowledgeable and entertaining - I’m going to look out for other classes. If you love your cocktails, you won’t be disappointed - have a little bite beforehand to keep up ;)
The Alexandria venue was an awesome space too.

The class was relaxed and engaged all of the participants - we were able to request non-alcoholic versions of the drinks and were also provided some snacks on the day.
It was a great way to start our afternoon and it was so satisfying to shake/pour the drinks.

Chris was great in taking us on a journey of using native ingredients with his philosophy in sustainability.
We were a private group of about 10 and half way through the class, everyone was having a laugh and a good time! Not to mention our cocktails were delicious and so pretty.

Thanks Chris - we all had a great time!

A really fun, informative cocktail making class. Drinks were awesome and got to learn what makes up some of the elements of a good cocktail, with the twist of using native ingreidents to add a new spin to the old favourites.

Courtney May 2022


The teacher explained everything in such vivid detail, how things were infused and what the ingredients were in a fun whimsical way that was both entertaining and easy to understand. The cocktails were delicious, all of my guests for my hens night enjoyed them and had a lovely experience with the interactive class.

Shannon Turner May 2022


Chris as a host and teacher and the class itself were amazing. We booked a private class for 14 people for my sister's hens party and every single person commented on how fun and informative it was and how delicious the cocktails all were! The location was in a great spot and was easy for us to head off to our dinner afterwards. I would highly recommend this class for anyone wanting to learn more about the history of alcohol, Australian native ingredients even Greek mythology! Chris just knew it all! And to top it off was highly charismatic and definitely knew how to make a good drink! 5 stars!

Sally Moffatt Apr 2022

The teacher was amazing, he is clearly very passionate about his job and teaches you everything. All materials were provided and the class is good value for money as it ends up being cheaper than a night out drinking the same amount of cocktails! Highly recommend.

Henrique Turra Apr 2022


Chris' class is super fun and entertaining! He is also very knowledgeable and was happy to share his experience. We loved that he incorporated some of the history of alcohol in there, and had brought some extra plants (natives) and a book to help demonstrate what went into his cocktails. Not to mention the drinks themselves were delicious! Highly recommend.

The host Chris was hilarious but also so knowledgeable and clearly had such huge passion for what he does! The cocktails were all so so delicious and so unique! We’ve never had anything like them! The focus on utilising native ingredients to infuse the cocktails was something we found so interesting and the focus on sustainability was amazing!

We had the best time and plan to come back with some friends!

This was a great class for a hens night activity! It was less a "class" as more of a very quick roadshow of some native ingredients, with a little bit of hands-on shaking and mixing. (Not sure if this was more a product of this being a silly hens time?)

The instructor was really flexible with the timing for our private class - as well as accommodating for a couple vegan attendees. A big thanks for kicking off our evening well!

Mary Jun 2021


Initially I thought how will native ingredients work with a cocktail? I was pleasantly surprised by how natural and tasty every single cocktail tasted and amazed at the knowledge and skill of the bar tender who cleverly worked his Ansett hostess trolley as we got ‘tippled’. Great fun & so informative, highly recommended.

Reema D'Souza May 2021


Absolutely amazing sesh with Chris on his cocktail specialities with local ingredients. Love the use of natives and easy and fun class for a relaxed evening . The venue was a private rooftop space, nothing over the top but fit for purpose. We were a group of girls and had the best time .

Ian Fletcher May 2021


Awesome Class!
Chris from Tippled was very knowledgeable and engaging with everyone in the class. Made everyone feel comfortable and involved no matter how experience they were.
The eco/native ingredient spin on the course and Chris’ whole philosophy on cocktail making makes for a lot better experience than a basic ‘step 1,2,3’ style cocktail class.

A winning combination of classic cocktails with an Australian twist, giving depth to the whole experience.

Such a fun and interesting class! Chris was a fantastic teacher, creating such a fun and warm experience. Last but not least, the cocktails were some of the nicest tasting cocktails we've had.

We had an excellent time sharing a cocktail making experience with Chris. He has a great formula, and it is so inspiring to learn about the unique plants found in Australia. It creates exotic tastes and every recipe we made was delicious. Chris is friendly, funny and knows a lot about local flora. Sipping beautiful cocktails while feeling inspired and learning new stuff, this is a winning formula. Ready to do it again!

This class is a great experience and fun night out. Chris is friendly and knowledgeable. He shares his passion of native plants uniquely through his very own cocktail recipes. The drinks were delicious and all so different. The venue was also lovely, on the rooftop amongst the garden. I definitely recommend this class to all!

Ciara Fitzgerald Feb 2021


It’s been awhile since I was in the classroom but cocktail making class tonight was tops with very chilled and informative teacher Chris. Considering licensing restrictions and C19 outdoor rooftop- downtown Redfern was perfect! Our “students” were lots of fun too! Aussie/ French family and a very cute loved up Chilean/Aussie couple and my daughter and I - Xmas gift to me! So an experience for everyone- me thinks.
Delighted to hear Chris found a way to stay employed during C19! Go out there and support him.

Great way to spend a Friday evening, on a rooftop making cocktails with Chris. Being able to incorporate his knowledge of Australian horticulture and culture into making some really good cocktails was such a fun experience!

Daniel Richter Feb 2021


Absolutely loved Chris' class! Really fun way to learn about native Australian foods and of course drink a few cocktails.

Rebecca Fox Feb 2021


My husband and I had an awesome time at the class. Chris was informative, fun and engaging with the whole class. We learnt a lot about native ingredients but also things like how to make different infusions and cocktail making tips in general, as well as taste some absolutely delicious cocktails. Chris himself was really easy to get along with and a great host for this type of event. Would highly recommend! Thanks again

We have just had such such a fantastic night! Chris was amazing as a host, didn’t rush through, just took us at our own pace. Beautiful and delicious drinks, wonderful venue and such great information about natural, Australian ingredients.
We can’t wait to try it all out at home !
We have had a wonderful time. Thanks Chris. You are great at your job!

Entertaining and educational, would recommend to friends etc

Lucky with the weather too but not sure how it would be in the rain

Bronwyn Deacon Jan 2021


We would generally pick wine over cocktails but are very interested in learning about native ingredients and ways to use the bush tucker we are trying to grow in our garden. Chris is a marvellous teacher - engaging and knowledgeable. His knowledge of the plants is prodigious. We learned the botanical names and where these plants grow. But not only that, we learned about how to make syrups and infusions with them. And, we learned how to make the most delicious drinks. Pouring the ingredients into the shaker and shaking them ourselves was so much fun. We will definitely be making cocktails at home now. It was brilliant. Thank you so much

Alesia Salavei Jan 2021


Chris is a natural bar tander with the skills of magician and brewer. We've learned more about native plants and infusion techniques than how to just mix drinks which as an amazing experience.

Our teacher was engaging, informative and knowledgeable. We learnt about the base composition of a balanced cocktail, as well as information on infusions and and variations. I always wanted to know what creates the foam in cocktails and now I do! This course also focused on Australian ingredients, enlightening me to what you can find in your own backyard. While these cocktails are quite complex to replicate, I feel that I have been empowered to try and figure out some cocktail mixes of my own!

Class was super fun, interactive and learnt some nifty things! Really appreciate you coming out and running such a ripper afternoon!

Jemma O'Regan Dec 2020


I could not recommend this course more highly! The venue was great, the cocktails were so delicious and the instructor was lovely and so well knowledgeable/ easy going. From the get go you hear about the sustainably of all ingredients and why it’s so important to look locally for delicious cocktails/
Ingredients. This course was a huge highlight of 2020 and a day to remember, 10/10.

Sean Nelson Mar 2020


If you could take away anything from this class, it’s that ecological alcoholism is the way to go! Chris introduced new flavours to the classic drinks, all sourced from our own backyard, with a message of sustainability and healthy dose of humour. The perfect cocktail for a great evening!

Anna Guilbert Mar 2020

The class was wonderful! On a rooftop garden that had a lovely backdrop of Sydney's sunset. It was a small intimate class of 9, including myself and my 2 besties for a birthday celebration. The teacher was incredibly talented and knowledgeable about his craft & ecology alcoholism (inside class joke but very suiting). Would definitely recommend to those that are starting out with the art of cocktails and getting into nature as well, to those that are already a master and looking for something fun to do!

We had an absolute blast - enjoyed the cocktails, the teacher and the view! Was a fun day and the cocktails tasted delicious.

Chloe Huang Feb 2020


We got to make 4 delicious cocktails on a beautiful rooftop in Kings Cross. We all took turns making the cocktails following detailed instructions, in a small class of about 7 people, with all of us standing around the mobile bar. It was a lot of fun, but also a lot of information to take in quickly - probably best for a social, fun event, instead of a truly in-depth educational 'class'. Still loved every bit of it!

Chris was super knowledgeable about all things Kombucha! To say we learned a lot is an understatement!

It was fun and informative which is a novel thing these days, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend

The format took us a little by surprise so my only feedback for an even better experience would be to advise what to expect in advance :)

Would highly recommend even if you are just curious about the process

Go forth and Kombucha!

Michele Woods Oct 2019


A great concept, but feel the pace was to fast, for quite a complicated process to the Novice, or myself that had no idea how Kombucha is made. I suggest to any-one doing the class, to read up and be a little savvy about it before going
I came away confused about some of the steps and had to refer to
U Tube, which I should have done before going to the class.

We had a great time making cocktails with Chris at the stunning Yerrabingin rooftop farm. He was super knowledgeable about the native ingredients and shared some excellent cocktail recipes that really championed the native flavours. An amazing way to spend an arvo.

Shirley Lu Oct 2019


Chris was a fantastic instructor -- funny, energetic, knowledgeable. We made four cocktails from interesting ingredients. They were all delicious. Only downside was that the class felt a bit rushed. I would have appreciated a slower approach so that I could learn foundational concepts. Some were briefly covered ("strong versus weak, sweet versus sour", infusing flavours in all components) but deeper exploration would have been valuable. Location was incredible -- it was great to enjoy the four cocktails on the rooftop garden.

Emma Cooper-Southam Oct 2019


Great teacher, lots of knowledge and funny. Cool native I tried ingredients and the drinks were amazing!

Rozalie Lakin Sep 2019


Liked the teacher. The venue was great. Rooftop garden was beautiful. The class was great. Chris was very knowledgeable and taught us well. We went home with our own Scoby and kombucha. I really recommend this class!

Sacha Cameron Sep 2019


Great relaxed class with killer cocktails! We took the class here to start off our hens night and it was perfect! So enjoyable

Clare Lassam Sep 2019


What a fantastic class, Chris was so helpful, informative and fun, just the right amount of information and making drinks!
A perfect balance, much like the amazing cocktails we got to make, all of the girls loved them with quite a few stating they were the best they'd ever had.
The venue isn't in a bustling area but it's a great spot away from the noise with some awesome native plants to enjoy on a rooftop
Highly recommend

Dianne Bergen Sep 2019


Lovely spot at the rooftop garden to mix and drink cocktails. The recipes and especially the making of the mixers was a tad rushed so you maybe don't walk away planning to make them yourself at home. The drinks were a good veriety and easily and enjoyably consumed. The additional visit by "Gardening Australia" celebrity, Clarence, with his knowledge of Aussie native flora was great.

Rob Medynski Sep 2019


this class was great! the teacher chris, was very friendly and very knowledgable. We made 4 cocktails each, which was the perfect amount. Chris prepared all the ingredients in advance and many of the syrups and infused alcohols clearly took a lot of prep time. great value. highly reccomended +++

Had a great time in this class! Chris, our cocktail master, was hugely knowledgeable, peppering each of the four unique libations we created with the history of bartending and information on our local native plants and their flavours. He's a lovely bloke who made the two hours very fun and entertaining for myself and my bestie. Highly recommended!

Meenaatchi Saverimuttu Sep 2019


We Had a great time at this workshop! The instructor was great and really informative about the kombucha making process. We were so excited to take our scobys home and care for them! The kombucha we made in the workshop (which we left to carbonate for a week after the class) was SO DELICIOUS! So excited to keep making my own now that I have all the tricks of the trade!

This was the second time I’ve done the cocktail making class with Chris, because my boyfriend and I enjoyed it so much the first time! This time was at the new rooftop garden location and a group of 13 of us booked a private class. Chris was great as usual - so knowledgeable and really makes the class loads of fun. The cocktails are absolutely delicious, and so much better for the infusions Chris makes with the native plants. Chris is super accommodating and I’d highly recommend this class, either as part of the group classes or as a private booking - both experiences were brilliant. All 13 of us had a fantastic afternoon. Thanks Chris, we’ll probably be back for more at some point! :)

Megan Crambrook Aug 2019


So much fun and very educational! Think it would be great to turn this class into a podcast too - can learn everything from the Jurassic era through to botanica. Maybe something called ‘tippling tips’ or ‘cocktails with Chris’? Would thoroughly recommend!

This class was the perfect way to kick off a bucks party - casual, heaps of fun, delicious drinks and good vibes. Thanks heaps Chris!

Chris was a wonderful teacher! Both engaging and intelligent he first demonstrated then encouraged us through making our own cocktails (x4), but also provided us with the skills to forage for our own natural ingredients in the neighbourhood to take our cocktails to the next level. This is a must do experience for anyone who wants both a fun night but to learn how to take cocktail making to the next level!

Lareine Yeoh May 2019


Teacher was entertaining and professional atmosphere was fun and relaxed. Setting was retro warehouse, very creative recycling of ex-Ansett Australia gear. We learnt to make a nice mix of different cocktails in groups of 3-5 people per trolley. Ingredients were supplied, had to do a bit of walking around to other groups to get some missing bits.

Giuliana Durighel May 2019


Great vibe in the heart if Newtown. Cocktails made were amazing!
Loved the class but wish we could have a copy of the recipes for all the cocktails!

Monica Hook May 2019


Did the native ingredient cocktail making course, really well done. All equipment and ingredients were set up and ready, great organisation. The teacher, Chris, kept things moving at a good pace so there was enough time to do everything but no hanging around waiting.

There were only eight in the group so we had all the attention we needed. Chris demonstrated first then we got to make our own and they were yummy!

Renee Curtis May 2019


Class was awesome it is located in a warehouse decked out like a plane hanger! Random airline theme. Guy running the class was awesome super knowledgeable on native plants and drinks! We made 4 cocktails total, they were easy to make and absolutely delicious i loved all of them. Will say i thought we might learn how to make some of the liquor using native plants but apparently its quiet complex. Regardless had such a blast, great idea although a heads up we were definitely very on our way to drunk post 4 cocktails so I definitely wouldn’t drive. Fun class

Tamara Stanley Apr 2019


Really enjoyed this fun class; ideal for beginners; affordable; nice relaxed atmosphere and a great use of native ingredients. All that was missing was a recipe sheet to take home as I couldn't remember all the ingredients and measurements after drinking the 4 cocktails we made.

Vincent Ip Apr 2019


Intimate small class of 9 participants. Everyone got to try shaking and mixing their own drinks. 4 drinks were taught and made. Chris was funny and easy to follow along and informative of the local native herbs and fruits.
Entrance was a bit tricky to find.
