At Shake That Bartending, we provide mobile cocktail classes throughout Edinburgh and Scotland. Ideal for a hen party weekend, private event or team building activity. We come to wherever you are and show you the ropes in cocktail bartending, whether this be your own home, hired venue or weekend accommodation.
Your bartender for the evening will either be one of the business owners or one of our tight-knit team. We are not an agency who will send out anyone! If we can’t provide you with an outstanding host, we will not take the booking. Unlike most cocktail making classes, ours are very interactive, with each guest making 3 classic cocktails, as well as enjoying a welcome cocktail created by your Shake That Bartender.
Your cocktail making classes is priced at £29.50 per person, with a minimum group size of 12 people and last approximately 2 hours. Transport costs may apply to some locations. .A £50.00 deposit is required to book a cocktail masterclass which can be sent securely through PayPal. The balance of the fee is due on the week of your event or party.

"My bridesmaid booked a cocktail class for my hen weekend and Joe came out to La Fortuna Lodges last night to teach us how to make 3 different cocktails. It was fab! All 19 girls had a fantastic time & Joe was so lovely... Even staying behind a little to take more photographs of us all. Had an absolute ball doing the class and couldn't recommend this service more! Xxx"
"We used Shake That Bartending as part of a hen weekend in Edinburgh! Mark was helpful from start to finish. He accommodated anyone who wasn’t drinking and was very knowledgeable! He also put up with a serious amount of dodgy singing from all the girls. Thanks again for a great night. Hope we can find an excuse to use you again in the future!"
