Cocktail Workshops for beginners
Competitive ‘Star Behind the Bar’ cocktail racing
Try your hand at Flair bartending
How to use molecular mixology
Gin tasting / infusions
Remote Workshops from ‘The Bar From Afar’ NEW FOR 2020!

Designed for the cocktail novices among us and ideal for birthday parties, hen weekends or simply for a fun day.
This comprises of a two hour cocktail making class with one of our specially trained bartenders taking the role as teacher. ‘Students’ are talked through the tools of the mixologist, free-pouring skills, history of cocktails and detailed information on spirits, not forgetting the opportunity to make (and drink!) your own creations of new and classic cocktails. The class is ended with a quiz and a prize to really test your knowledge.
The Cocktail Clinic is mobile and can be brought to you at your home or rented accommodation.
For larger groups and corporate customers, we have a range of great ice-breakers and pre-dinner activities for you.
One of our favourites is where we invite you to ‘Star behind our Bar’. Delegates will race against each other to make a chosen cocktail in the fastest possible time. scores are recorded on a magnetic score board (à la Top Gear) with the fastest mixologist presented with a cocktail shaker set.

Our latest package is based upon the nation’s favourite show about cakes, however ours comes with a twist (and an olive). We’ll split everyone up into teams, and then present each team with a crate full of ingredients, some labelled, some not, along with a list of cocktails that you need to make within 30 minutes (these may, or may not have the full instructions).
Cocktails are judged by our bartender (Paul “shaken not stirred” Hollywood) and the winning team are awarded ’Star Shaker’, along with some prizes.
There will also be some other elements, including the Showstopper Challenge, where the challenge is to create the most intricate garnish upon a simple cocktail.
From our brand new studio space, we are now able to offer remote cocktail classes for parties as small as 1! All classes are run by one of our pro cocktail bartenders, and can cover a range of different themes, such as spirits, decades, or even colours. We have two options for these sessions:
1. The PMT Party (Pre-measured Tipples)
We prepare, separate, and bottle the ingredients needed, and ship these out to each of your participants. For a box of 3 cocktails, including a mini shaker and garnishes, we charge £45, and the cocktail class is included. You’ll just need to make sure you’ve got some glassware and ice.
2. The BYO Party (Bring your own)
A shopping list is sent out to everyone attending to pick up ingredients ahead of the session, including recipes for making your own syrups, cordials, and purees if needed. Tips on ice and glassware is also included, and then we all meet online for an informative and fun lesson with one of our skilled bartenders. Cost for this is £210.
