Cocktail Making in Bournemouth : Information

Be the Bartender you've always dreamed of during our Cocktail Making class in Bournemouth!

One of the most popular activities for Hen Parties, Cocktail Making is a real crowd pleaser and you really can't go wrong with it for a Hen Weekend with the girls. The activity takes place in one of our centrally located, popular venues (bar or gastropub) and the event itself takes around 90 minutes to complete.

We feel this is the ideal Hen Do activity to indulge in the art of Cocktail Making, or Mixology as its professionally called!

A fully qualified barman will be there as he gives you loads of expert knowledge and guidance in making your signature cocktails. You have a pretty extensive menu of cocktails to choose from but you can always try to come up with your own stellar creation!

After the masterclass, relax with the girls and enjoy some delicious nibbles, which are great for soaking up some of that alcohol! The best part is you don't have to travel anywhere for post class drinks, the bar is barely a stones throw away.

Why choose Cocktail Making for a Hen Weekend?

It isn't just the mixing and making you can look forward to, its the drinking as well! You'll get a cocktail on arrival as well as being able to drink anything you mix, so hopefully that will motivate you to make something tasty rather than nasty!

If you chose to do another activity you would most likely head to the bar afterwards... But with Cocktail Making you don't have to move, you're already at the bar! Also the bar is right in the city centre so you have good access to other pubs and clubs if you fancied going somewhere different.

You and the girls are getting ready for a big night ahead so pre drinks will be a welcome addition to the Hen Weekend.

Some of the Cocktails you might want to make:

Our supplier has an extensive list of Cocktails available for you to try to make (and drink!) and we are going to highlight just a few of our favourites.

First is a real favourite, the Cosmopolitan and it includes Vodka, Cointreau, Cranberry, Lime, Sugar Cane Syrup and Orange Mist. The first part is pretty simple, just chill the glass, mix your ingredients into a shaker, shake for 20 seconds before straining it into the glass. Now for the not-so-simple part! Cut an orange peel, warm it with a match and then bend it to release oil, which will ignite a flame on the surface of the drink. But reading about it is no fun at all - try it yourself, we don't want to spoil it!

Next up is a Cherry Boulevardier. A delicious cocktail, the Cherry Boulevardier consists of Bourbon Whiskey, Martini Rosso, Aperol, Cherry Syrup, Angostura bitters and Orange Mist. This cocktail follows the rule of 'simple is better', all you need to do is mix, strain and enjoy... no need for pyrotechnics!

Another one of our favourites, and another very popular choice is the Long Island Iced Tea. The ingredients include Vodka, Cointreau, Gin, Bacardi Rum, Reposado Tequila, Lemon and Coke. If you're looking for a drink to get the night started then you just have to give it a go! It isn't too hard to make, just mix the ingredients carefully, add ice until cold and then add the coke afterwards. Ahhh, so refreshing.

Great alternatives to Cocktail Making:

Bournemouth has a lot to offer Hen Parties. Being a coastal town means there are a huge array of activities to choose from but our most popular is the Afternoon Boat Party, its the little slice of luxury all Hen Weekends need.

Luxury not your thing? You think the Hen might prefer something else? How about our Its a Knockout or Old School Sports Day activities. 

Good to Know:

All of that crafting, mixing and making is bound to make any girl hungry, with that in mind how about adding a 2 Course or 3 Course Meal to have after the Cocktail Making class?

A minimum of 6/8 people are required for this activity.
