A question we get asked a lot is people wondering if they can join in with a cocktail making masterclass if they don’t drink alcohol. You’ll be happy to hear that you can still try your hand at cocktail making whether you like a tipple or not. Just let the experience provider know how many of you don’t drink alcohol when you place your enquiry, and they’ll get back to you to let you know what they can offer instead. Most of the time, they’ll teach you how to make non-alcoholic mocktails instead. You’ll be surprised at how good these taste. Plus, you won’t get a hangover the next day!
