Cocktail Making Party - Hen Night Edinburgh City Centre


The summer season is fast approaching and the diary is filling up fast at Shake That Bartending. We finished May with a great cocktail class at home for a small hen party of 12 strong in Edinburgh's New Town.


We like to change it up from party to party with the cocktail choices at our cocktail masterclasses, but on this occasion, we went with a Hazelnut Espresso Martini, Strawberry and Rose Collins, Raspberry Mojito and Vanilla Cosmo.
