Learn the beautiful art of Mixology with your friends/colleagues in a fun and engaging way!

Cocktail mixology is an art form to some- but to The Cocktail Society we know it’s all about fun, enjoyment and most importantly- TASTE!

Give your guests an experience they will never forget. Have The Cocktail Society teach them how to shake, stir and muddle their own cocktails! We will work with you to come up with a perfect cocktail list and your party will be full of laughter and enjoyment in no time.

We provide all of the necessary equipment, recipes and shopping lists to help keep things as easy as possible. Plus, we’ll give you take home recipes so you can create them again and again!

How does it work?

We will supply all cocktail shakers and special tools needed for the cocktail creations, everything else will be supplied by you. But don’t worry, we will give you a clear shopping list and you’ll know exactly what is needed.

We will teach each cocktail in small groups of 5-8 people at a time. This ensures you get the best experience. It will allow your guests time to mix and mingle with each other whilst others make their drinks. Once everyone has made a drink, we repeat the process with another fabulous cocktail creation until the class has completed the cocktail list.

Once you have completed your cocktail making class each participant will be given recipe cards to be able to test out their new skills on their own family and friends.

Once we book The Cocktail Society what happens next?

Once we have confirmed with you our booking, we get straight to work. We will collaborate with you to come up with a cocktail menu for the night. Once the cocktails have been confirmed we will give you a shopping list of all ingredients and alcohol required. We are experts in knowing how much you will require of each ingredient and we will ensure we make this as easy for you as possible. 

Are you available for hens parties and stag dos?

Absolutely! We not only specialize in bachelorette parties or bucks nights – we are also available for many other events. Including birthdays, weddings, private events such as: housewarmings, launch parties, corporate events.

Do you supply the cocktail equipment?

Yes we do! We bring all of our own cocktail equipment- including cocktail shakers, ice scoops, straws, measurers, muddlers, strainers, chopping boards, knives and stirring spoons. 

What are we expected to provide for you?

We are incredibly adaptable bartenders and can work with any space. Generally we require a decent bench space or table at waist height and access to a sink. Also required are guests who are ready for a great time! If you’re unsure about your space then send us a message to find out more.

How long can we book you for?

We have a minimum hire of 2 and 1/2 hours. This includes ½ an hour of time to set up and pack down. Otherwise it's really up to you how long!

We recommend 3 hours of service for 15 or more people, this means everyone will get a fair amount of cocktails each and no rushing needed.

How many people can we hire you for?

One bartender can serve up to 20 people. For events larger than this we require additional bartenders or waitstaff. We've done events of up to 200! Get in touch to find out how many staff you’ll need for your event.

How many cocktails will you make?

We recommend having 4 cocktails on offer for the night. That way your guests won’t get swamped with choice. We recommend choosing classic cocktails such as Mojitos, Cosmopolitans, Margaritas, Rosebuds etc. Recognisable cocktails that your guests will love!

Will you serve beers and wine too?

Of course! Any beverages supplied by you will be gladly poured by The Cocktail Society! Although “shaking and making” cocktails will be our priority.

Can you supply the alcohol and ingredients?

Unfortunately, we can’t. We cannot supply any alcohol to you as we do not have any of the relevant off licenses to provide alcohol for sale. We are offering a bartending service only.

Also by letting you do the shopping- it saves you money too!

We love what we do and we hope to work with you soon!
