Maybe you’re part of a group or club. Maybe you’re here because you have guest speakers. And just maybe a talk on cocktails appeals to you. Frankly we’re with you on that one. Why wouldn’t a talk on the history of cocktails and cocktail making appeal to most groups?
We’re happy to fill in and provide that for you if you’d like us to. We get many invitations to turn up and speak at various events. We’ve run over 40 talks so far and presented to close on 1,600 people. So we’re warmed up and ready!

How it works
The key things you want to know of course, is how it works and how much we charge. It’s fairly straightforward to be honest. We are usually given a 60 minute slot. We run our 40 minute presentation ‘Everything you wanted to know about cocktails but were afraid to ask.’
During our double act you’ll find out
- How we got into cocktail making
- Cocktails defined
- A little of the history of why & where cocktails came from
- The 3 parts to cocktail structure
- Some cocktail myths and trivia (to impress your friends!)
- What’s in a name? How cocktails got extraordinary names
- A practical demonstration with samples to try!
As we come to the end of the talking bit, we then switch to making some cocktails, to show you how it’s done. We make up a couple of alcoholic cocktails, and we do a couple of non-alcoholic mocktails too. We like to cater for everyone.
You then get the chance to try some already made up samples that we have prepared for you. We know how to win an audience over!
The fees depend on how many people you have in your group. But as a guide, if your group is about 40 and you’re fairly local to us here in Market Harborough, the total fee may run to around £100. And if you don’t have that many members – why not use the evening as an open evening where you get your members to invite guests? Friends or perhaps members of neighbouring groups, if you’re a W.I. group for instance.
If you want us to quote you to come along and entertain you all for an hour or so, simply fill in some details on our contact page here.
And why not have a look at what others have said. We’ve had lots of lovely testimonials.
We’re ready to serve. We appear all over the Midlands. Market Harborough, Leicester, Northampton, Kettering, Wellingborough, Corby, Oundle, Loughborough, Oadby, Atherstone, Tamworth and all points between.
