What Happens at a Nottingham Cocktail Making Class?

Cocktail Making in Nottingham

If you fancy injecting some fun into your celebrations, whether it’s a birthday, stag or hen weekend in Nottingham, head to one of the many venues that offer cocktail making for an interactive drink making sesh that sees each of you get hands on to make cocktails, as well as sinking a welcome drink and more along the way. All our cocktail masterclasses are led by professional mixologists who'll guide you on how to make the most mouth-watering cocktails, sharing tricks of the trade (and loads of samples!) and making sure a great time is had by all.

We only work with the best venues in the city so you know that your Nottingham cocktail caking party will run smoothly and be loads of fun for everyone attending. You don’t need any previous experience to try a cocktail masterclass, just come with plenty of enthusiasm to get stuck in. Your dedicated mixologist will give you full instruction and be on hand throughout with helpful hints and tips. You’ll be amazed at what you’re able to whip up by the end of the class. You’ll make a range of drinks from scratch. The cocktail menu varies from venue to venue but you could be making a Cosmopolitan, Pina Colada, Mojito, Sex on the Beach, Pornstar Martini, Espresso Martini or a Daiquiri. Yum!

Some of our Nottingham cocktail masterclasses even include interactive games, led by the mixologist, where you can show off your competitive side. You might make a cocktail blindfolded or race against your friends to see who can make their drink in the shortest amount of time! If you’re celebrating or partying with a group of people who don’t know each other that well, it can be tricky to get that initial ice broken. We all know that alcohol has a clever way of getting us loosened up and chatting, making this fun activity ideal for groups who don’t necessarily know each other that well like hen parties or team building and corporate events. Your group will be chatting about and bonding over their favourite flavours in no time! Most cocktail classes have a smart casual dress code but if you’re planning a big night out for a special occasion, dress to impress is always best! If you’re thinking about wearing fancy dress, it’s best to check with the experience provider when you place your enquiry. They can let you know about any dress code requirements, so you’re prepared ahead of time.
