Boy oh boy did we have fun at our My Crafternoons X Mumbler bar Cocktail-Making Workshop!
Not only did we learn to shake, stir, strain, build, rim and garnish three DELICIOUS cocktails, but we learnt all the technical terms and techniques plus handy hints for even seasoned cocktail-makers. We enjoyed cheese grazing platters, shared lots of laughs and got to take home the recipes having quaffed our creations and had a ruddy good time- and don't worry no-one drove home!
Now we know the difference between a Boston shaker and Cobbler Shaker, we know to smack our mint to release the oils but not bruise it, and how to add salt or sugar to the outside edge of the glass to avoid it affecting the cocktail itself. ALL THE SKILLS! Thanks to our awesome tutor Amber who is knowledgeable, funny and just a total babe. Amber is even happy to share her cocktail recipes with you all- I can't choose my favourite as they were all scrummy!
