Why not learn some of the secrets of mixology at Shake That Bartending's mobile cocktail masterclasses. Our cocktail classes are available in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland. The typical locations we travel to outside of Edinburgh are, but not limited to,
Typically we come to you and show you the ropes in mixology. More often than not we will come to your own home or hired accommodation and host your very own mobile cocktail making class .
What cocktails will we learn to make at our cocktail masterclass?
Your professional cocktail lesson will teach you how to mix 4 different cocktails. The cocktails change from season to season so we can provide fresh ingredients but something typical might be along the lines of this....
Number 1 cocktail in the world. We have a slightly different twist that you will learn at your cocktail making class which contains spiced rum, passionfruit, lime, vanilla and pineapple. It is one might fine drink.
Strawberry and Rose Smash
A Shake That Bartending all time classic cocktail. One of the most popular cocktails at our cocktail masterclasses in Edinburgh and Scotland. A beautiful combination of Botanist Gin, fresh lime, rose syrup, strawberry puree, rose water and rose lemonade.
This cocktail will often kick start proceedings at our masterclasses. Nice simple one to start. Strawberry puree and lime are shaken up, strained into a champagne flute then topped with champagne.
A twist on the classic Tom Collins cocktail with one simple addition of elderflower cordial/syrup. Shaken up gin with some fresh lemon, elderflower syrup and topping with soda water completes this great cocktail.
What do we need to provide for our cocktail making party?
The good news is absolutely nothing. We provide absolutely everything from your cocktail bartender to host the class through to all glassware, ingredients, cocktail making kit, and a plentiful supply of crushed and cubed ice. The only thing we need from you is a table to host the class. Typically a dining table or kitchen island table is more than adequate.
How much would our cocktail making class cost?
Cocktail Classes cost just £29.50 per person which feel represents great value for money and is regularly fed back to us from our happy clientele. If you are having your party outside of Edinburgh there may be small travel charges on top. The travel costs go straight to the bartender to cover his time travelling and fuel expense. We don't make any money from this charge as it allows us to cover a wider radius and create more great cocktail masterclasses.
How do you select the cocktail bartenders to host the classes?
We are small tight knit team! If we can't provide you with a great host we will not take your booking. On our selection process, we look for bartenders to join the team who are skilled in their craft but also extremely personable, laid back, have a natural ability entertain and make people feel relaxed.
