MOLECULAR COCKTAIL MAKING CLASSES

Our Molecular cocktail making classes focus on scientific techniques of changing the chemical structure of ingredients to make innovative and unique cocktails. Using specialised equipment, you will be taught how to make four of your own delicious, lab-produced cocktails within our completely interactive molecular masterclass format. Every guest will have their own work area on a custom cocktail bar station, each of which holds four people.

Some of the components of the molecular workshop include: An iSi cream whipper with N20 canisters, a choice of teas, and dry ice for mist creation. This fantastic class boasts exciting visuals, tastes and science to heighten your masterclass experience.

"Using dry ice to make your cocktails entertains every time!"

“Went with my girlfriend for their new molecular mixology class. I’d recommend this to anyone – using dry ice to make your cocktails entertains every time! Cocktail on arrival, make and drink another four with the instructor, followed by the competition at the end! Highly recommend this place” – Jonathan Paul, Local Guide.

"Really good cocktail making experience.."

Really good cocktail making experience. The teacher guy was excellent and really engaging. I’m not a big drinker but the experience is still great fun. We made five cocktails overall.” – Anthony Hua, Local Guide.

"The most fun team building day.."

It was a lot of fun getting to use a variety of cocktail making skills and our mixologist also explained a little about the ingredients we were using and how they were produced. All in all, everyone said this was the most fun team building day they have had. Will definitely consider organising another visit but this time for my birthday. 5 stars!” – Stephen Yates, Local Guide

"I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to have a good time.."

“From the moment we got there we were very happy and greeted with very yummy cocktails. We were thought how to make really nice cocktails too not just boring standard ones! I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to have a good time, this was the best part of our day by far 🙂 thank you so much for having us!” – Rosalyn White, Local Guide

"The host was friendly, attentive, and great with interacting with the team.."

“I just wanted to pass on my thanks for the event.  The team had a great time doing the cocktail making course and they enjoy it tremendously.  The host was friendly, attentive, and great with interacting with the team.  I will definitely recommend your services to our other teams in the company.” – Willard Lipnica, Halland Partners

'We really enjoyed it from start to finish and all the drinks were great..'

“Thank you for such a brilliant class. We really enjoyed it from start to finish and all the drinks were great (apart from the ones we designed ourselves, so no change of career for us). Mixologist was very knowledgeable and fun and dealt well with a somewhat boisterous group of women in high spirits!” – Isabella Jackson, Local Guide

"The big bosses commented that it was the best event I had organised so far!"

“I arranged for Mixology to come to my office for a staff event, all of my colleagues were very impressed by the Cocktails that we made and the staff that helped us throughout the night. Many of the big bosses commented that it was the best event I had organised so far! The cocktails were great and it was great value for money. Well done Mixology!” – Melissa Watson, Google Review.

"A fabulous, boozy afternoon."

“A fabulous, boozy afternoon. Led by an entertaining and knowledgeable Scot, we tried our hand at various classic cocktails with a twist. Great present to get the other half.” – Shane Craig, Google Review.


VIEW TESTIMONIALS

Can you do non-alcoholic versions of the molecular drinks?

Unfortunately not, at the moment. This is because the cocktails on this class rely on the alcoholic content for many of the scientific processes to work.

Do I need to bring anything?

All you need to bring is yourselves, we will provide everything else.

Do you offer molecular classes for 2 people?

Yes, our public molecular classes are perfect for you. They run at our Shoreditch flagship venue on Kingsland Road on the first Friday of every month from 7pm. Our private classes, meanwhile, are a great option for groups of 6 or more.

Why would I need a voucher?

The vouchers give you unparalleled flexibility when booking onto our public classes. Essentially, you don’t have to choose a specific date for your session – it’s an open voucher.  They work really well as a gift – for example, if you know someone who would love to come to one of our classes but you don’t know an exact date they’re perfect.

Can I have food during my class?

We offer full catering options for our private classes, ranging from a bowl option at £5 per portion, and deli boards that work well shared amongst one bar for £25. Unfortunately we don’t yet offer this service on our public classes.

Would you recommend food?

While food isn’t necessarily part of the package, it is certainly recommended. As you can imagine during two hours of making and drinking cocktails, it’s quite a good idea to line your stomachs. Even if the addition of food is a relatively last-minute decision, we will be able to cater to your needs if you get in touch with your event organiser a few hours beforehand.

Do you have digital vouchers?

Yes we do. We can send printer-friendly vouchers over to you via email so there’s no need for you to wait for the postman.

MASTERCLASS SERIES

An evolving series of immersive masterclasses designed for those who have been to one of our regular classes before, or are seeking a cocktail class with a bit of a twist.

Each of these new sessions is inspired by a certain theme, from a Mezcal-based Cinco de Mayo fiesta, to CBD-infused spirits, and even some rooftop-based wellness classes. Click for full list of dates.

VIRTUAL CLASSES

Inspired by the lockdown era, our virtual classes provide an environment in which to be sociable despite the distances between us.

Learn to make cocktails from the comfort of your own home. Professional equipment and high-quality ingredients delivered directly to your door, anywhere in the world. Classes are conducted using the Zoom platform as standard, with other options available!

HEN PARTIES

With only a small deposit to confirm the booking, and choice of a cocktail or prosecco reception, our private classes have all the necessary ingredients for an ideal hen party! 

Any time, anywhere. We can come to you, wherever you may be across the UK, or you can come to us. For groups of any size, your class is fully flexible. Learn to make (and drink!) over 5 cocktails within a unique, purpose-built class set-up, whilst maintaining 100% interaction.

EVENT ORGANISER

For our classes, we have a dedicated and personal team of event organisers based at our flagship venue in Shoreditch. The same event organiser will stay with you from planning and booking your event, on the day and post-event.

Your more than welcome to come down visit our unique, purpose-built class set-up to have a look around, meet your dedicated event organiser, and stick around for a well-deserved cocktail afterwards, or we can organise a site visit to your preferred venue.

YOUR HOST

Our entire team, from bartenders to our head office, have years of experience in the industry, and with Mixology Events. They each go through rigorous training to learn how to deliver the best cocktail making classes on the market.

Not only this, each and every one of them are enthusiastic, friendly, and – generally – pretty lovely human beings to have around. Don’t just take our word for it, why not meet them for yourselves?

PHONE, EMAIL OR ORGANISE A SITE VISIT!

We understand the importance of verbal communication, and we know that some questions simply can’t wait for an email response.

That’s why if you’re considering booking an event, we encourage you to give us a call, organise a site visit, or come visit our team. That way we can discuss your ideas, since every event is unique.

PRIVATE CLASSES – FULL INFO PACK

We have been specialising in delivering top-quality cocktail classes for over a decade, and in that time we have continuously improved and fine-tuned our experience so we can proudly call ourselves the best on the market.

Many bars offer their own versions of cocktail masterclasses, but they are often not fit for purpose. It is cramped, not fully set up to allow all your guests to continually practice their cocktail making skills for the whole duration of the class, and you are often learning in front of a public audience in busier bars. Not Ideal.

WHERE?

We host the majority of our masterclasses at TT Liquor, where we have 4 dedicated masterclass lounges that are fully set up when you arrive – freeing you up to make cocktails continuously for 2 hours without waiting for anyone to set anything up for you.

We do that all before you arrive. The rooms come in a variety of sizes and cater for groups of 6 up to 80.If you have a location in mind we also specialists in bring the complete set up with us. All the bars, with all the equipment, all the liquor, fresh products and ice. You simply let us know where you would like it to be and we set it all up in less than an hour and a half. We then offer the same experience you find at TT Liquor at any location you can think of.

EQUIPMENT & TUITION

Each bar also comes fully stocked, so that everyone on that bar (max 5 guests per bar) can make cocktails throughout their masterclass, with no interruption and no standing around watching. There are 3, 6, 8 and 16 bars set up in the 4 respective cocktail making lounges across our four-floor venue at TT Liquor and we have a total of 42 of these bars so we can perform a masterclass for up to 210 guests, all still receiving the same experience and all still making cocktails together!

We also provide you with your own professional bartender, who will be your dedicated host for the session. After putting together a reception cocktail for you and your guests, they will then guide you through 4 different cocktails, letting all your guests in on the various tricks of the trade to make your drinks taste better than ever. The perfect skills for your guests to take away with them to show off to their friends at their next garden party or barbecue.

Our expert bartenders are at the very top of their profession and are rigorously trained to deliver the best cocktail making experience possible for groups of up to 80. Their job is to be entertaining and engaging with all your guests, while simultaneously offering unparalleled insights on how to make your cocktails taste amazing. You may not get it right the first time around, but they will work attentively with each member of your group to hone their skills.

COMPETITION

To end the session with a bang, each bar will be set loose to create their own cocktail, testing out their new skills and competing head-to-head with the other bar teams. Your expert host will then have a taste of each creation and crown the winner. There is nothing quite like a bit of healthy competition and 5 cocktails each to bring a group together!

WHO?

Our cocktail classes have been enjoyed by budding mixologists from 18 years of age to 88, for a wide variety of occasions. Everything we do is geared towards making it an event to remember for you and your group.

WHEN?

We are lucky enough to be able to perform these classes 7 days a week and at any time of the day you wish. Due to this flexibility, we teach over 20,000 guests all the skills they’ll need to get mixing every year.

HOW DO I BOOK A VOUCHER?

You can buy a voucher via the form above. Alternatively, give us a call on 020 8003 7982 and we’ll happily book them over the phone for you.

HOW LONG DOES MY VOUCHER LAST?

They last 12 months exactly from the purchase date. If something comes up and you give us a call within that time frame, get in touch and we can be pretty flexible when it comes to extending them.

WHEN WILL THEY BE DELIVERED?

As soon as we receive a voucher order they’re sent out via first class post. Depending on how busy Royal Mail is, you’ll usually receive your physical vouchers in 2-3 working days.

CAN I PICK THEM UP?

Yes of course. If you purchase them and just give us a call straight afterwards, or drop us an email, we’ll respond to let you know whether you can pick them up. Generally, if the liquor store is open you’ll be able to collect them in person. The shop is open Monday-Wednesday from midday-10pm, and Thursday-Saturday from midday-11pm.

DO YOU HAVE DIGITAL VOUCHERS?

Yes, we do. We can send printer-friendly vouchers over to you via email so there’s no need for you to wait for the postman.

WHY WOULD I NEED A VOUCHER?

The vouchers give you unparalleled flexibility when booking onto our public classes. Essentially, you don’t have to choose a specific date for your session – it’s an open voucher. We run our classes twice a week, generally – Friday from 7pm-9pm and Saturdays from 1pm-3pm. They work really well as a gift, for example, if you know someone who would love to come to one of our classes but you don’t know an exact date they’re perfect.

I HAVE BOOKED A DATE BUT CAN NO LONGER MAKE IT, CAN I HAVE A REFUND?

Our vouchers are non-refundable but we will be happy to reschedule you to a more suitable date.

I’M THINKING OF ORGANISING A MOBILE MASTERCLASS. WHAT DO I NEED?

All your really need is an empty space for us to come and set up in, we can come to offices, houses, gardens, tents, rooftops… as long as we have the space and the access we can set up anywhere, you don’t need anything on your side at all.

SO HOW BIG ARE YOUR PORTABLE BARS?

We’d recommend you allow a space of about a meter and a half depth and a meter and a half-width for each bar. That allows enough space for the bars to be set up and for people to stand behind them. The bars are assembled on-site and pack down to be fairly compact so there’s no need to really worry about door-width.

WHAT VENUES ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR A MOBILE MASTERCLASS?

We’re happy to work with most spaces but for instance, in an office, it wouldn’t work in a room full of desks. We also try and avoid using spaces with lots of columns or other obstacles that might block people’s view of the instructor. Anything on a slope wouldn’t be ideal either. We are based in London and are happy to come and do a site visit anywhere in the city if you’re unsure whether or not your space would be suitable.

AM I ABLE TO HOLD A CLASS AT ANY TIME OF DAY?

Absolutely, we can do a class at any time of day, week or year. We just need enough time to set up all the bars beforehand and break them down again afterwards. This is usually between about an hour and two hours either side of the class depending on the size. We can be very flexible when coming to you.

HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO SET UP?

Depending on your group size we will need 1 ½ – 2 hours before and after your class to set up and break down.

DO WE NEED TO SUPPLY ANYTHING FOR THE MASTERCLASS?

All we need is a clear space to set up. We will bring everything we need to host the class including, the bars, equipment, glassware, ingredients, ice etc.

CAN WE HAVE THE CLASS IN MY GARDEN?

Yes we have hosted classes outside before, just be aware we will need a flat ground to set up the bars properly.

HOW FAR CAN YOU TRAVEL?

We are based in London but can travel anywhere you need us. We have hosted cocktail masterclasses in Scotland all the way to Cornwall.

IS FOOD INCLUDED?

Not as standard, no. However, we are able to add food to most events at most venues. At our flagship venue in Shoreditch, we have permanent cooking facilities meaning we can do hot or cold food. Dependent upon the facilities at our other venues, we are able to offer this as well. We’ll always be able to offer cold plates and deli boards.

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND FOOD?

While food isn’t necessarily part of the package, it is certainly recommended. As you can imagine during two hours of making and drinking cocktails, it’s quite a good idea to line your stomachs. Even if the addition of food is a relatively last-minute decision, we will be able to cater to your needs if you get in touch with your event organiser at least 24 hours beforehand.

DO YOU SERVE HOT FOOD?

Yes, we can cater your class with hot bowl food at select venues. Please get in touch with your event organiser to double-check that yours is suitable, and for current menus.

WHEN WILL THE FOOD BE SERVED?

We usually serve bar snacks and deli boards at the beginning of your class with your welcome cocktail and hot bowl food halfway through the class during a natural break.

DO YOU SERVE VEGETARIAN/ VEGAN FOOD?

Yes we can offer vegetarian or vegan options, please ask your event organiser for details about our full range.

IS THERE A DRESS CODE?

No, there’s no dress code per se. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in, bearing in mind you will be on your feet for around two hours. If you’re coming in fancy dress, please ensure that you highlight this to your event organiser beforehand. Nothing too crude or crass, but generally you’re in a private room so you can come pretty much as you wish.

WHAT IS THE DISABLED ACCESS LIKE?

We’re afraid our disabled access at our flagship Shoreditch venue is very limited at the moment. However, we do have a variety of other venues across London and the UK which have ample disabled access. Please highlight any disabilities in your party with your event organiser beforehand, and we’ll happily advise on a suitable venue.

IF I’M DEAF, WILL I BE ABLE TO ATTEND A CLASS?

Yes of course. We have catered for deaf classes before, generally the clients will have organised an interpreter. Again, let your event organiser know beforehand and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE’S A CHANGE IN MY GROUP SIZE?

This will be shared when you make your booking, but we’ll need your confirmed numbers 7 days before the class is scheduled. This ideally will be conducted via email with your event organiser, who will send you your final invoice. If there are any changes less than 7 days before your class, it is unlikely that we will be able to amend the final invoice, so please keep in touch with your event organiser.

HOW ARE BOOKINGS CONFIRMED?

Generally, after a conversation with your event organiser about your event, you will need to put down a 30% deposit to confirm your booking and provide a home or company address to detail. This will all be sent over via email, along with the terms and conditions outlined. The final balance will be due a week before your class or event, generally once numbers are confirmed.

I NEED TO CANCEL MY EVENT, CAN I HAVE MY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Once we have sent you the deposit invoice your event has been confirmed, therefore if you wish to cancel your event you must do this by email so we have written proof and you must do this at least 14 days prior to your event date to be eligible for a refund of your deposit. If you have booked your event with less than 7 days lead time, a cancellation must be received within 24 hours of your invoice being sent to avoid liability of payment.

WHEN DO I NEED TO PAY THE FINAL BALANCE?

The balance of your event must be paid 7 days before your event, if payment has not been made someone from our accounts team will contact you to make payment over the phone.

ARE DOGS ALLOWED?

No, unfortunately not in the classrooms.

ARE UNDER 18S ALLOWED?

No, due to our licence under 18s will not be able to attend your class in any capacity at any venue – non-alcoholic cocktails or not.

 

CASE STUDY – PRIVATE CLASS

We took our mobile cocktail making class up to Hertfordshire for a hen party – we hosted the class outside in the sunshine!

The hens had rented a beautiful large house near Welwyn for the day, and the weather was absolutely perfect for al fresco cocktail making.

Our mobile classes can be taken almost anywhere – and we’ve done a number of events outside now, all of which have been great successes. It’s a great way to take advantage of the British summertime – check out the event we did for Procter & Gamble last summer.

Cocktail classes are also perfect hen party material – after 6 cocktails everyone seems to be in a good mood and up for a party!

We can host our cocktail classes at our new permanent home, TT Liquor, on Kingsland Road in Shoreditch or we can take them with us to almost any external venue of your choice throughout London or the UK.

 

CASE STUDY – CORPORATE CLASS

Mixology Events hosted one of our masterclasses on the 53rd floor of The Shard, located at London Bridge, central London. The cocktail making class was for 40 people and took place soon after The Shard opened in February 2013.

The security at The Shard was appropriately tight, which we took into consideration when organising the logistics of the class – we made a location visit in advance which helped to ensure there were no difficulties in keeping to schedule.

We provided 8 cocktail bars, fitting 5 guests per cocktail bar station – allowing each guest their own workspace to maximise interaction and involvement throughout the class.

The Shard is a great venue to host our classes, providing unparalleled views and providing insights into such a significant building.
