Here, we’ve provided you with the ultimate guide to virtual cocktail making, including some of our recommended products – why not take a read and get ready to familiarise yourself with this popular, virtual activity?
How Does Virtual Cocktail Making Work?
Just like in normal times, your class will be hosted and run by a professional mixologist, however with a virtual session, you’ll be able to enjoy the experience from the comfort of your own home.
Each virtual cocktail making class will take place via a video calling application such as Zoom and your session will be private and strictly for you and your group only, adding that personal touch to your experience! A kit containing all the ingredients and necessary equipment will be sent to each member of your group ahead of the class.
You’ll be given your own personal link to begin your session at the agreed time, which you’ll need to share with your group in advanced. Your class will be hosted and led by an experienced mixologist who will provide a warm welcome to everyone, before giving an introduction and brief run through of your session.
It’ll then be time to make your first drink! Your mixologist will provide a demonstration of this initial drink, before breaking things down into easy, manageable steps for everyone to follow. You’ll mix, muddle, shake and stir your way to perfection and it won’t be long till you’ve created a sensational and sumptuous cocktail.
There’ll usually be a short interval between each drink, where your host may provide a little history into the drinks you’re making. Alternatively, you may like to take the time to chat with your group as you sit back, relax and enjoy your tasty creation. Afterwards, you’ll dive straight into making your next cocktail, which will include a demonstration.
As each of our offered cocktail making sessions are run by different suppliers, the content, duration and inclusions will vary. Please take a look at each listing’s description, important info and customer notice to see what is included in that particular activity.
How Many Drinks Will I Be Making?
You and your group will be able to make a minimum of two delicious drinks each during your virtual cocktail making class, however, this amount may vary and is very much dependent on which activity provider you choose to host your session.
What Type of Cocktails will I Be Creating?
This all depends on the type of virtual cocktail making class you go for - we’re proud to offer a great selection of different virtual cocktail making suppliers! If you’re opting for Christmas cocktail making, you’ll have the opportunity to create your very own festive inspired drinks that will be sure to get everyone into the Christmas spirit!
If you choose one of our cocktail making classes that are available all year round, the types of drinks you’ll make will vary depending on your activity provider – these could include exotic concoctions such as the Passionfruit Martini or the sophisticated Espresso Martini! Our non-seasonal virtual cocktail making classes are great for special occasions including hen parties, birthday parties, teambuilding or simply just for fun!
How Many Participants Can Attend a Virtual Cocktail Making Session?
Because these cocktail making masterclasses take place online, you’ll be able to have a larger number of guests attend compared to a physical cocktail making class taught in a bar or venue. The minimum number of participants required to run a virtual class ranges between 5-10 people, whilst the maximum could be up to 100 guests and beyond!
Please ensure that you check the product description on your preferred virtual cocktail making class and check the minimum and maximum capacity numbers before booking. In addition, all members of the class must be 18 years of age or older to partake in the drinking of alcohol.
Do I Have to Provide all the Ingredients and Equipment for the Class?
Nope! Your provider will send each participant a handy kit in the post ahead of the virtual class, which will include everything needed for everyone to make their own delicious cocktails during the session. Kits will include all ingredients, in addition to all the vital equipment needed to mix up the drinks.
Please note that you’ll need to provide your own glass to pour your cocktail into; if you don’t have a suitable cocktail glass, then a coupe glass or a small wine glass will work just as well! We also recommend buying some cubed ice for the session if you’d like your drinks to be served chilled!
How Much is a Virtual Cocktail Making Session?
Prices do tend to vary amongst virtual cocktail providers; however, prices start from £37.50 per person. Included in the price of each virtual cocktail making experience, will be a handy kit filled with ingredients and equipment to whip up your drinks, postage so your package can be delivered to your home address and the online session, which will be streamed to you via Zoom. Please note online video calling applications may vary depending on which activity provider you choose to supply your session.
