Whether it’s on Zoom or FaceTime, with colleagues or with friends; your virtual hangouts don’t need to get stale. So if you’re looking for a way to spice up your next happy hour, or need some inspiration in the team-building department, you can now have a mixologist crash your cyber-drinks with a cocktail masterclass, adding a dose of much needed creativity to your social interaction needs.
Pouring a glass of wine and throwing on pyjamas to chat is nice and casual, but given we’ve been doing this whole lockdown thing for a while now, you may want to elevate your experience.

How it works? Simple! Order you kits online here (minimum 6 required), and have them shipped to any addresses required nationwide. Then you and your guests will be hosted in a one hour session with a legit expert mixologist where they’ll teach you how to whip up delicious concoctions at home. Throughout the masterclass guests will be learn how to craft two different cocktails with equipment they can find in their own kitchen, plus get equipped with insider hacks on how to ACTUALLY create a balanced drink, ensuring it hits all the right notes.
Each cocktail kit includes printed cocktail recipes, set up instructions, all non-perishable ingredients and a shopping list for required fresh produce.
