The great thing about a cocktail making masterclass is that it really is suitable for everyone.

What If I Don’t Drink?

If you, a few members or all of your party don’t drink - no need to stress! You can still have plenty of fun making a variety of mocktails. As long as you inform your venue ahead of the experience, they’ll be able to swap out some ingredients from the usual cocktails they’d create so that you can create some fruity, fizzing and oh so delicious drinks, just without the alcohol.

Why Amsterdam?

Amsterdam is a seriously popular place where loads of us will head for hen dos, weekends away and birthday celebrations alike - and for good reason! It’s filled to the brim with fascinating history and culture, with Anne Frank’s house and the Van Gogh museum being two absolute standout places to visit. It’s also well-known for its fabulous food venues. If you’re in Amsterdam, you know you’ve got to grab a stroopwafel, some loaded fries and some poffertjes (those are tiny Dutch pancakes, in case you weren’t aware!) This stunning city has also been the filming location of some hit TV shows and films: think ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ or ‘Ted Lasso’, just to name a few! There’s plenty of reasons to want to visit this utterly beautiful city: whether you’re heading here to enjoy the flowers, fancy sampling some of the cocktail bars or are here for a bit of culture, Amsterdam is the place to head for a great getaway.

Cocktail Making Etiquette

Remember that a cocktail masterclass is not just about the drinks; it's about the experience. Soak up the vibrant atmosphere, enjoy time with your mates and revel in the joy of sharing a common passion. After all, who doesn’t love cocktails? Cocktail making is an art that brings people together, and a masterclass is the perfect place to bond and create lasting memories. Check individual listings to see if your chosen bar or pub has a dress code. If not, smart casual is usually a good bet. Plus, it means you can hit the town and enjoy even more cocktails after your masterclass. Not forgetting, taking loads of photos!

Which Drinks are Popular in Amsterdam?

When you’re in Amsterdam, you’ve got to try Genever, the legendary Dutch spirit known as the ‘grandfather of gin.’ Sip it neat or mix it into classic cocktails like the Dutch Negroni or a refreshing Genever and Tonic. Embrace the essence of Amsterdam and raise a glass of this traditional gem. When it comes to popular alcoholic drinks, beer takes centre stage in the Netherlands. From crisp lagers to bold ales, Dutch breweries serve up a wide array of flavorful brews. Raise a pint of Heineken, Grolsch or a local craft beer, and join the lively Dutch beer scene. For a touch of sweetness, indulge in Advocaat, a traditional Dutch liqueur made from eggs, sugar, and brandy. Savour it straight or mix it into creamy Advocaat cocktails for a decadent treat. Locals are also great fans of Long Island Iced Tea. It's a spirited blend of vodka, rum, tequila, gin, triple sec, cola, and sour mix that's sure to pack a punch!
