Learn how to shake like a professional
Have you always wanted to know the secret to making the finest cocktails? Would you like to be able to handle the shaker like a professional bartender, and surprise your guests with fine drinks at the next party? In this workshop you will get an insight into the colourful world of mixed drinks. You will be able to familiarise yourself with shaker utensils, spirits, juices, and trimmings, and learn how to mix and decorate alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Last but not least, you will create a drink with your team, which will then be judged by a jury.
Before the shaking can begin, you learn all about the ingredients and utensils so that you will later be able to prepare drinks according to the recipes yourselves. Photographs and recipes will also be sent to you after the event. After dividing your group into smaller teams of between 7 and 15 participants, the cocktail professional introduces you to the most important spirits, juices, and utensils. Then to the essence, the art of cocktail mixing itself. The workshop leader also gives you tips about creating the trimmings as a final touch.
Now you can get down to work. Following recipes and what you have just learned, you can practice handling the shaker, mixing five alcoholic and three non-alcoholic drinks, and making the appropriate trimmings. Every participant is involved, and true teamwork is required. And each drink has to be tasted, of course!
This requires team coordination too. Each group now has to create an alcoholic drink, come up with the right trimmings, and find an original name. The creations are then judged by a jury on the basis of their appearance, taste, and practicality. The winning team will be honoured with a bottle of champagne to take away. Cheers!
The workshop also works well between a seminar and dinner in a hotel or conference centre, or as an ice breaker to accompany any event.
