Cocktail Demonstration-Chester

Cocktail Demonstration Evening

In early September, we completed another Cocktail Demonstration Evening for a lovely group of ladies from Scotland. This is where we provided two members of staff, to make the event run smoothly as possible. We explained how the cocktails were invented, roughly when the first cocktail was made (and by whom). Then we went into demonstrating how to make the cocktails, by breaking the elements of making each cocktail down. This was great fun, as once we had made the first cocktail, the guests normally come in ‘pairs’ and make themselves a cocktail, under our guidance and drink them afterwards. We bring all the smaller equipment for the event, cocktail shakers, pourers etc as part of the service. Once again, a great night!

Marquee Wedding-Chester

At the beginning of July we were at a venue in the centre of Chester in a fabulous marquee set in lovely gardens. It was the wedding of Tom and Jo. It was obvious that alot of planning had gone into this special wedding day and you could see this all on the day. The guests had a lovely meal and great speeches afterwards! The bar was kept very busy most of the night too. Lots of ‘Jager bombs’, Peroni and spirit mixers were the popular drinks on the night. Another very enjoyable day/evening. Congratulations to Tom and Jo together!

Wedding in Anglesey

Last Saturday, we provided  a bar service for a wedding on the Isle of Anglesey for newly weds Mike and Ashley. It took place by picturesque Welsh hills, this was really a stunning setting. After the wedding had finished, we offered a glass of pimms to all guests as the Welcome Drink. These went down a treat and were perfect for a hot summers day. All 62 guests enjoyed this special occasion.

The night do was set in a cool, spacious tee-pee tent that looked spectacular.

The cocktail bar was set up in the middle of the tee pee and in front of the dance floor, so we couldn’t be missed! This was a perfect set up and worked well. As the night progressed all the guests were looked after by our trained mixologists and support staff, with lots of dancing later. It was busy across the bar with lots of cocktails-the most popular being Mojito’s, Strawberry Daiquri’s and Porn Star Martini’s. along with beers, gin and tonic’s and jager bombs being served, most popular cocktails we made were Mojito, Strawberry Daiquiri and Pornstar Martini along with gin & tonic’s and jager bombs being served. Another fantastic night for all! Congratulations on your wedding Ashley and Mike.

Joint 21st and 25th Wedding Anniversary

We worked inside a church hall in Chester in the last weekend of March. It was for a joint 21st Birthday party and 25th Wedding Anniversary party providing a ‘free bar’ for 70 odd guests. We were asked by our friends Tony and Yol to help provide staff and run the bar for them. We were more than happy to do so. On the night it went really well and we gave everyone a glass of fizz as the guests arrived. We served cask ale, several different types of gin, wine and pimms. The bar was steady all night, but good fun was had by all. We hope their were not too many sore heads the next day!

Iceland Holiday

We have just been on a fantastic holiday in Iceland. It was cold as expected but beautiful walking along the sea front to the harbour. We stayed for a couple of nights in Reykjavik and went up the main church tower for the views of Reykjavik which were spectacular. The Blue Lagoon, geysirs, waterfalls and the glacier trip, (going inside the glacier for 500m) was a truly amazing experience. It was not cheap though for a night out at £10 per pint! We had lots of fun though.

Winter Holiday

We have just been on a fantastic holiday in Thailand. The weather was lovely for 2 weeks while we were away with glorious sunshine. We stayed for a couple of nights in Bangkok and went to a night market there, where we were asked (in a bar) would you like Jack Daniels and coke in a glass or a bucket! At the same bar they made me a Black Russian cocktail without the coke cola! So always expect something different in Thailand! We had lots of fun and it was very relaxing!!

50th Birthday Party-Helsby

In October we worked on this special night for Karen’s 50th birthday party in Helsby, Cheshire.  The marquee (joining the house) was great to hold a birthday party and this is where there was a dance floor too! It was a bit different to what we normally do as we did not take the mobile cocktail bar but instead we provided a couple of members of staff to look after all the guests by providing a ‘Welcome Drink’ and topping up glasses of Prosecco, beers etc. We really enjoyed working there as it was a very ‘chilled out’ night. Lovely people to work for Karen and Neil and a brilliant night had by all. We just hope their were not too many sore heads in the morning!
