Cocktail Making in Edinburgh : Information

Be the drunk bartender you've always wanted to be during our Cocktail Making on the Hen Weekend in Edinburgh!

A crowd pleaser and one of our most popular Hen Party activity choices, you can't go wrong with cocktail making when it comes to a weekend away with the girls. Held in a popular, centrally located bar or gastropub, the entire event will last around 90 minutes as it is a detailed Cocktail Making Class.

This is the perfect event for hen parties to indulge in the art of Cocktail Making, or as its professionally called, mixology.

A skilled barman will be present to give you all the expert knowledge, as well as serving the wonderful creations you mix. There is an extensive menu of cocktails you can try to make, as well as potentially trying to make your own, signature cocktail!

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 in Edinburgh?

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.

Other activities to try on a Hen Weekend in Edinburgh:

We all love Cocktail Making but Edinburgh has so much more to offer you on the Hen Do and some of our favourites is the Nude Life Drawing Classes and Butler in the Buff activities

As well as your typical Hen Party favourites there is activities like the Whisky Tasting & Tour available to you too.

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 8 people are required for this activity.
