18th Birthday Party-near Wrexham

We worked in September at a 18th birthday party. The night went really well for about 20 guests, at a house party locally near Wrexham, for a couple of hours. The cocktail list was fairly short but the bar was busy most of the night, with all the cocktails being very popular, but good fun was had by all. We hope there were not too many sore heads the next day!

Joint 18th and 50th Birthday Party-Cheshire

We worked outside (undercover) in early September at a joint 18th and 50th birthday party at a lovely converted farm house with outbuildings and duck ponds in Cheshire providing a ‘free bar’ for 175 guests. We were recommended to Steve and Alex by one of our members of staff. It rained all day (when we were moving all the bar equipment and setting up). But the night (which was dry) went really well and we gave everyone a glass of fizz as the guests arrived. The cocktail list was fairly short but the bar was very busy all night, with all the cocktails being popular, but good fun was had by all. We hope their were not too many sore heads the next day!

Barbecue-Burscough

Over the Bank Holiday weekend in August we helped out with a Summer barbecue (in the afternoon) in Burscough, Lancashire. There was a ‘bucking bronco’ at this party too! We set up in a corner of the paved patio. The party was very ‘chilled’ with it being a ‘free bar’ with the Mojito cocktail being the most popular being made. Lovely venue and Paul (who booked us for a few hours) seemed very pleased with everything. Another great event we have had the pleasure to work at!

Wedding-Wallasey

This month we helped with a wedding in Wallasey, Wirral for Jason and Suzy who were both great people. The wedding tool place in a lovely church hall for 250 guests. We feel honoured to be there as this was the first time this particular venue has been used for a wedding. The cocktail bar was set up in the corner of one of the side rooms away from the main hall. A perfect set up. As the night progressed, all the guests were well looked after by out trained mixologists and support staff,with lots of dancing later. It was busy across the bar with lots of cocktails, beers, gin and tonic’s and Jager bombs being served. Another fantastic night for all! Congratulations Jason and Suzy.

40th Birthday Party-Ellesmere Port

In mid August we completed a 40th Birthday Party event in Ellesmere Port. Clare (who booked us) wanted a ‘Free Bar’, using our services for a few hours, then they stayed at the house with the ‘Bucking Bronco’ having lots of fun on it! Lovely people to work for Clare and Shane and a brilliant night with everyone enjoying the cocktails. This is the second time that they have booked us, as we were also at Clare’s 30th birthday bash too! We hope their were not  too many sore heads the next day!

Squashed Frog-Cocktail

How to make the above cocktail, (it is known as a shooter), you will need the following ingredients/equipment.

Midori

Advocat

Shot glass (or similar from your cupboard)

This is a short cocktail and very easy to drink!

To make this cocktail, you will need to pour a single measure of Midori into a shot glass. Then top the drink with a dash of Advocat. You should have a drink where the Advocat has sunk into the Midori. Relax and enjoy!

Summer Holiday

We have just been on a lovely holiday in Abersoch, North Wales. The weather was a bit mixed last weekend, sunshine on Friday afternoon and Saturday (all day). The rest of the weekend and Monday it was either overcast or raining. Not ideal when you are camping. Swimming in the sea, sun bathing on the local beach and going to a local village fete. We had lots of fun and was all very relaxing with my brother and his family. A few restaurants in Abersoch did serve cocktails which were really nice!

Kalkan Cocktail

We have just been on a fantastic, lovely holiday in Kalkan, Turkey. Where we tasted several different types of cocktail, mainly rum  and vodka based and non alcoholic cocktails too. In our hotel Murat made me a ‘Lemon M’ cocktail. This consisted of White Rum, Raspberry Absolut Vodka and Cointreau. Mixed with 1/2 a lemon and 1/2 orange (freshly squeezed). Shaken and then served with ice into a pina colada glass with fruit (for decoration). Really refreshing to drink!

Summer Holiday

We have just been on a fantastic holiday in Kalkan, Turkey. The weather was great all week, sunshine every single day which helps when you are away. We did something different each day too. Going on a boat trip, swimming in the sea, sun bathing etc. The local people are all very friendly and the food/restaurants in Kalkan are superb. Met some lovely people and we came back with a tan! and had lots of fun and it was very relaxing!

Cocktail Party-Lytham, Blackpool

In May we worked at a cocktail party to celebrate Nicky completing the London Marathon in April of this year. The theme was black tie and everyone made the effort to dress up and looked really good! We had a brilliant night working in Lytham and a fantastic venue to hold a party, using our services. Lovely people to work for Jason and Nicky and the bar was really busy all night but this time we were set up outside, (which really helped with space). We just hope their were not too many sore heads in the morning!
