Cocktail Making in Oxford : Information

Learn how to mix, muddle and mash all your favourite cocktails with our Cocktail Making on the Hen Weekend in Oxford!

Ever wanted to learn how to muddle a mojito or shake a cosmo? Well, here’s your chance. During our Cocktail Making, you will receive a Prosecco drinks reception, 30 minutes expert tuition from one of our bar tenders to help you make and shake two cocktails each, a delicious buffet and a Jägerbomb rally! 

Our Bartender has great knowledge so if you need anything, or have any questions he will be able to help you. The Cocktail Making class also has plenty of fun games, as well as a lovely buffet for you to tuck into!

Cocktail Making is without a doubt one of our Hen Party favourites, and a true crowd pleaser, it is a staple of the Hen Weekend and a guaranteed winner with the girls. The activity is held in a popular gastropub or bar located in the city centre, meaning post activity drinks are never too far away!

Why choose Cocktail Making for a Hen Weekend in Oxford?

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.

Some other fabulous activities to do in Oxford:

Oxford is a Mecca for Hen Parties. We've been sending groups there for years and with activities like Butler in the Buff and the hilarious Blind Driving it isn't hard to see why! As well as that they also have Vineyard Tour & Tastings and a fantastic Picnic River Cruise 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 3 Course Meal to the Cocktail Making class? Cocktail Making might not be for everyone, some of us prefer Cocktail Drinking! With that in mind check out our Cocktails & Cupcakes Tea.

A minimum of 8 people are required for this activity.
