Our presentation ‘Everything you wanted to know about cocktails, but were afraid to ask’ was the guest feature at 2 Leicestershire W.I. groups over the last 2 weeks. We believe we met members of 7 different Women’s Institute groups and our presentation was seen by over 100 people.
Admittedly you may think of us the Cocktail Shaker Boys as the guys who come round to your place and serve you a range of cocktails at your party or event. 40th birthday, 50th birthday, silver wedding anniversaries, 21st parties, 18th parties, hen party celebrations are the types of events we appear at.
However as guys who have a deep interest in all things spirits, liqueurs and cocktails we’re happy to share our interest in cocktails with willing audiences (or anyone willing to listen frankly.)
With us as guest speakers our 40 minute presentation with cocktail sampling for the guests at the end is intended to be an interesting, light-hearted wander through the history of cocktails.
During our talk, 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 & trivia (to impress your friends!)
– What’s in a name? How cocktails got extraordinary names
– A practical demonstration with samples to try!
Our cocktail sampling session includes a choice of both alcoholic cocktails and non-alcoholic mocktails.
If you are actively involved with a W.I. group, or something similar such as the Rotary or the Lions – we’ve worked with both of these groups too, and you’re on the look out for guest speakers, please bear us in mind. Depending on where you are and the numbers of people you expect to attend, we can give you a quick price, you can let us know the date you’d like us to appear and it’s in the diary. Sorted.
