Here, you’ll learn how to create their famous vodka-based cocktails with games included to ramp up the fun factor. If you fancy more than the bar snacks provided, you’ve also got the option here to add a filling two-course meal with your choice of either a starter and main course or a main and dessert. With all the alcohol you’ll be enjoying, this is a great way to line your stomachs! Once you’ve finished your cocktail class in Leicester, you can enjoy more drinks, dancing and a party atmosphere at Revolution amongst the modern décor and impressive mezzanine floor.

They’ll teach you how to make three delicious cocktails each with a range of spirits and mixers. Your mixologist will be wearing a very memorable uniform, a cheeky bottom-baring apron, collar, cuffs and a bowtie! Expect plenty of giggles and blushes before you start shaking and stirring your drinks. And don’t forget to take loads of photos! You’ll also be treated to interactive and competitive games to complete your two hours of fun.

Do We Need to Know Anything About Cocktails?

Not at all! You don’t have to be a professional bartender or a cocktail connoisseur to try out one of the cocktail masterclasses in Leicester. All you need is plenty of enthusiasm to get stick in and give it a go. A professional mixologist will lead your class, giving you full guidance every single step of the way. They’re used to teaching groups of all abilities and experience levels and just want to make sure that everyone has fun so you can expect a fun and friendly atmosphere throughout.

What’s more, you’ll be able to recreate these mouth-waring flavour combinations at home over and over again.

What Should I Wear to a Cocktail Masterclass?

The dress code varies from venue to venue, but we think if you’re celebrating something special, you’ll want to dress to impress. Failing that, smart casual is always a good idea. Some venues might not allow fancy dress or hen party inflatable so it’s always best to check. If you have any questions about the bar, pub, club or restaurant’s dress code, make sure to ask the experience provider when you place your online enquiry. They’ll let you know what’s expected from you and you can go from there. If there are any members of your group who don’t drink alcohol, please let the experience provider know and they’ll let you know what they can offer your drink instead. Some venues will teach you how to make non-alcoholic cocktails instead of boozy cocktails. That way, you can all the fun of the masterclass without any of the alcohol. Plus, you won’t get a mean hangover in the morning!
