Our cocktail classes can be held in almost any space that suits the numbers participating from a range of cocktails bars, venues and spaces or we’ll come to you.

There are some fantastic venues in Sydney but this mostly depends on your budget.

More Information

From the equipment to the ingredients, the methods and then history; there is much to learn when it comes to mixing drinks. Below are some things that are covered in our classes.

What is a cocktail?

Mixing Cocktails

team building challenge

Team Building Challenge

Making cocktails is not hard. Working a busy cocktail bar and maintaining the standard of great cocktails late into the night in some possibly hectic situations, is the hard part.

Starting with some easier recipes and concepts we move on to apply some general rules and learn some preliminary facts and history. This will open doors to an endless quest for great cocktails, flavours and an amazingly interesting, culturally rich history of all things liquid and some things not.

Flair Bar tending

Flair bar-tending combines juggling feats of ordinary bar items with the serving of cocktails to fantastic effect. Learning a few tricks is great fun and builds confidence when mixing drinks at home or behind the bar.

Cocktail and Spirit History

A cocktail is a style of mixed drink. Originally a mixture of distilled spirits, sugar, water, and bitters, the word has gradually come to mean almost any mixed drink containing alcohol. A cocktail today usually contains one or more types of liquor and one or more mixers, such as bitters, fruit juice, fruit, soda, ice, sugar, honey, milk, cream, or herbs. What is a cocktail?

Creating Cocktails

A balance of sweet and sour forms the base of most cocktail creations, often starting with a desired flavour or special spirit and balancing the ingredients with dashes, drops and splashes of mixers, syrups and more. A small taste of each ingredient before mixing will help place it’s contribution to the final cocktail.

Cocktail kits for the winners are also a rewarding addition.

Testimonials

Hi Jeremy,

Thank you for a fantastic session last Tuesday afternoon. We all had a great time!

I was wondering if you can please send me the recipe for the cosmos and the mojitos so I can pass them onto the group.

Thank you!
