In early June on a rare, dry, Monday night we had the privilege of providing our mobile cocktail bar service for a lovely group of ladies who live in and around Chester, who call themselves, the NWI group. (Not the WI!!!). We did a cocktail demonstration event with them a couple of years ago, so to be asked to do it again, was a pleasure.
What a “chilled out” party it was, the weather was kind and just about warm enough to work outside, although it did start to rain slightly at the end as we were packing up but we did not let that ruin the fun.
We set up the mobile cocktail bar on the edge of the patio. As last time we chose 3 x different cocktails, to demonstrate/show how to make them. Firstly though, we explained (very briefly) who invented them/history of the cocktail as part of the evening demo.
The 3 x cocktails that were chosen: Kalkan Gem, Walkin on the Peaches and Bramble. Kalkan gem is a new cocktail to us invented by some lovely ladies who regularly holiday in Kalkan. They kindly shared the recipe with us which we tweaked and it was amazing, this will definitely be on the menu gain.
Once we had demonstrated how to make each cocktail, the ladies came up to the mobile bar, in “pairs” and made there own drinks, under our expert guidance. As we had had 2 x work stations set up. This was hilarious and good fun! Alcohol and fruit juice was going all over the place thank goodness we were outside!
A good night was had by all. Also, thank you Jackie and Heather as well with your efforts in clearing up afterwards, much appreciated.
Lets “Mix it Up” Derek and the Team!
