Virtual Cocktail Making Classes

WE COME TO YOU

At Mixology Events we offer fully-interactive virtual cocktail making classes, flexibly delivered to any location in the world via Zoom, along with all the equipment and ingredients you’ll need to take part.

We’re the pioneers of mobile cocktail classes, so we can draw on over a decade’s worth of experience and relationships for our virtual classes. Our team can deliver our 100% interactive classes for groups of any size and help provide a much-needed environment in which to be sociable despite the current distances between us.

Having worked alongside esteemed brands and clients alike, and taken our bars as far afield as the Scottish highlands and as close to home as a back garden as well as your computer screens, you can rely on us for our professionalism and experience.

MASTERCLASS FORMAT

Booking Process

To get things started, first decide if you want to join a public class or, if there are six or more of you, set up a private class of your own. Choose from our range of different menu and class varieties to tailor your virtual class experience to best suit your tastes.

Delivery & Prep

All the equipment and ingredients required are delivered straight to your door a few days prior. The pack also includes guidance on how to set up your bar station and how to make your own ice at home, which you’ll ideally need to do in advance.

Class Length & Invitation

On the day of your virtual class, we’ll send out a Zoom meeting invitation which will include a ‘waiting room’. Once everybody has logged in, your host will kick off the masterclass.

Each of our interactive virtual cocktail classes last roughly 30mins – 2 hours depending on the option you have chosen.

Introduction of Cocktail Class

Your virtual host will go around the group to ensure you’re all set up, before introducing some of the key concepts behind cocktail making. Pour your pre-batched reception cocktail into a glass with ice to enjoy during the class introduction.

Competition

Once everybody has set themselves up, your host will take you through each drink one by one whilst guests attempt to recreate them as closely as possible before drinking. In between each cocktail, your host will go around each participant to get feedback on how their creation went. We have class options to make two, three, or even four cocktails.

Competition

To round off your class, each bar will then be pitted against the rest and given 8 minutes to produce their very own cocktail creation, using the ‘mystery ingredients’ we include in your pack as well as any garnish you can find around your house.

The items you will need from the kitchen are a small knife and a small or medium size chopping board. These are only the ideal sizes – if you only have a meat cleaver and a tree trunk they will still do the trick.

*Please note, non-alcoholic options are available for each cocktail. Nobody gets left out.

OUR STANDARD COCKTAIL CLASSES

Although we’re proud of our virtual classes, we’ve spent most of the last decade delivering physical cocktail making classes in-house at our Shoreditch flagship venue, and at a variety of our venues spanning the UK.

Available on both a public and private basis, each of our range of award-winning classes is focussed on delivering 100% interactivity for every single guest. Why not pay us all a visit in person once all this blows over?

MOLECULAR CLASSES

Using specialised equipment, you will be taught how to make four of your own lab-produced cocktails within a completely interactive molecular masterclass environment.

These classes are a great outside-of-the-box option for private group bookings, and we also run public versions of our molecular classes on the first Friday of every month, which are perfect for groups of five or less.

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.

Thanks again!!” – Katherine Usher, Google Review.

VIEW TESTIMONIALS

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 peoples 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.

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.

How are bookings confirmed?

Generally, after a longer 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.

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 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.

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.

MOBILE CLASSES – Any Size, Any Time, Any Location, Any Day

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.

Read More...

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.

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 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.
