When choosing a menu for your bar hire the huge range of options may seem a little daunting.
We’ve split our cocktails into categories to help take the stress out of picking your drinks menu.
For any bar hire we recommend a menu of between 4 and 8 drinks. These can be cocktails, beers, wines or even mocktails, and when choosing these drinks there are a few factors you may want to take into consideration.
You can browse our cocktail list by category and add the drinks you want to your menu, which you can then email to your event organiser, who will make all the necessary arrangements. Alternatively you can view our complete list of cocktails here.
Variety — It’s always worth having a few different styles and flavours of drinks, try cocktails with a range of different base spirits and think about offering beers or wines as well as mixed drinks.
Speed of service — Different drinks take different amounts of time to make, we’ve split our drinks into those which are quick to make, average and a bit more complex. Try to balance more complex drinks with some quicker serves to smooth out service and cut down on wait time.
You may also want to consider the size of your event. For a larger event we suggest having a smaller menu – this will allow your bartenders to quickly make more than one drink at once, helping regulate service. For smaller, more relaxed events, there’s room to get a bit more adventurous with your menu.
Seasonality — This one’s pretty self explanatory. By no means is any drink limited to one particular time of year, but we’ve split our drinks by season to help you pick the most appropriate cocktails for your bar hire.
Strength — Try to serve a range of different strengths of drinks at your event, if you’re planning a classic or tiki styled menu, many of the drinks may be quite strong so you’ll want a few choices for guests who prefer a lighter option. As well as low and no-alcohol cocktails, we also serve a range of beers and wines.
