Great Cocktails, Any Location

Welcome to the website of Shake That Bartending. We are a small team of experienced cocktail bartenders based in Edinburgh who provide cocktail experiences for events and parties with our mobile cocktail bar, mobile cocktail making classes, and our new service; 'The School of Hard Shakes' - online cocktail making classes.


The business was created after we had been to too many events were the drinks service had seemed like an afterthought. We knew we had the passion and expertise to change this and offer clients an affordable high-end cocktail experience. Your cocktail class host or bar team for the evening will be made up of one of the business owners or our tight-knit team. We are not an agency who will send out anyone! If we can’t provide you with an outstanding team, we will not take the booking.

The original concept of the business! To serve up amazing cocktails from our mobile bar at any location and charge less than your local cocktail bar. Our mobile cocktail bar package includes everything needed to serve up our  incredible cocktails at your event or party. You just need to kick back and enjoy the party with your guests.


We come to your party and show you the ropes in cocktail bartending. Welcome cocktail reception with demonstration followed by hands on class where everyone learns to mix three cocktails each. 100% hands on and interactive mobile cocktail class which includes four delicious cocktails per person, and everything needed to host an amazing cocktail making class experience. Shake That’s cocktail class experiences last around two hours and are perfectly suited to hen parties and team building events.  



Looking for something to do whilst in lockdown? Planning a virtual Hen Party or Virtual Team Building event? Get in touch and book your online private cocktail classes. 1 on 1, or larger groups, your class will teach how to make cocktails like the professionals. (All cocktail equipment can be substituted with common household items/ A list of simple ingredients will be sent 7 days prior to your class date). 


To put it simply, one of our great cocktail bartenders will come to your event or party and shake up some tasty cocktails. This package is suitable for up to around 30 guests and includes everything required to host an amazing cocktail party of your own. You just kick back and relax whilst our bartender shakes up four rounds of tasty cocktails for you and your guests (does not include mobile bar).
