COCKTAIL MAKING COURSE
Guests will be treated to an unforgettable multi-sensory experience, beginning with a delicious cocktail and inspiring flair demonstration.
Now you’re warmed up to enjoy the interactive cocktail games which follow, introduced by some of the country’s most experienced bar-tenders. These games provide a lot of fun combined with learning new skills.
WARM UP COCKTAILS
A great way to start! Guests are served a delicious fresh fruit cocktail and shown to their seats.
Mixology and Flair Demonstrations
A world class flair bartender will perform an amazing flair routine to music – sure to inspire and grab attention!
The mixology demonstration that follows will include a number of classic and contemporary cocktails, as well as some of our own inventions. These are passed round for tasting.
GAME FOR A COCKTAIL?
The bar becomes interactive. Guests are split into teams and asked to observe a demonstration on how to build a cocktail. The teams are then invited to follow the same method and build their own cocktail against the clock. Marks out of ten are awarded for each team. A variety of methods and cocktails make up a number of engaging and challenging rounds. Teams will also be able to try their hand at flairing-bound to entertain! Examples of rounds we like are:
The Pour Off – Learn how to free pour accurately – not as simple as it sounds!
Layer Me Up – Each team makes layered shots, waits for them to be awarded a mark and then it’s down in one!
Fun Flairing Tastic – Teams are shown a tandem move to some feet-tapping music, then invited to perform for the crowd. Inhibitions are usually settled somewhat by participating in rounds 1 and 3 – which makes for a great final round!
SAMPLE THE SPIRIT
As an introduction to the Mixology Games, guests are treated to tasters of spirits from around the world. Exotic and interesting spirits and liqueurs are sampled professionally whilst the bartenders entertain with anecdotes and historically relevant information.
MIX ‘N’ MATCH MIXOLOGY
Each team is allocated a table on which are placed basic cocktail ingredients (e.g. Vodka). A mystery bag is then passed around and each team takes a luck dip whilst blind-folded. Half the ingredients in the bag are frequently used to make cocktails (e.g. vanilla pods) whilst the other half can be used, but it requires great skill to build a drink out of these (e.g. beef stock!) Team members can now use their newly-acquired knowledge to build their very own unique cocktail, experimenting until they have their perfect creation. Bartenders mingle, support and encourage. Each team then nominates a bartender to demonstrate their cocktail. Finally, points are awarded for style, taste, originality, name and so on.
