“Having seen a previous WI group say that they had a zoom cocktail evening, we decided it would be a nice fun evening for our WI to try out.  We contacted the Cocktail Shaker Boys, and went ahead and booked.

It was a great evening – as lockdown had been eased, we were able to meet in others houses in small groups, and this worked well on Zoom.  It was great to get a list of ingredients beforehand, and we pooled our resources.

The Cocktail Shaker Boys delivered an excellent session.  Easy to follow, very informative, and at a good pace which enabled us to make them along with them at the same time as the demonstration.  You could otherwise just watch, and create later.

Would highly recommend them, for a nice evening activity with friends. Next time we would arrange for a Friday night though “

Cocktails on the bar
Sue – Norfolk W.I.

“What can I say but thank you for a wonderful evening last night? We had a great time and your promise of learning how to make two cocktails certainly enticed some of our zoom shy members out to play!  We have received great feedback from all our members that took part last night. Some have gone to invest in cocktails shakers and glasses whilst others were busy adding triple sec and white rum to their click and collect shopping bags. We were also really pleased that you showed us a mocktail recipe as we have a few ladies that don’t drink alcohol. 

I can’t recommend your zoom night highly enough. We felt it was great value for money (words our treasurer doesn’t say quite so enthusiastically normally!), there was something for everyone and we had a really great time. 

I also think its important to say that prior to the evening all the communication that we had was very efficient, every question and query answered really quickly helping us to plan for the evening. Thank you so much for a great evening.”

WI cocktail presentation
Jo – Sheffield W.I.

“It was mentioned how brilliant you were & how much everyone enjoyed your presentation! We all agreed we wished you lived nearer so we could have you perform in person!!!!”

Gaynor – Hampshire W.I.

“We booked the cocktail shaker boys as a birthday surprise for my husband. We invited family and friends via zoom. Everyone was really looking forward to it and no one was disappointed. We had a brilliant night, the 3 cocktails we made were delicious. Andrew was really informative and answered all the questions we threw at him, even if some were a bit random!
It was a brilliant way to spend the evening and I would recommend it, especially if like us your family are dotted around the country. 
I will warn you though the cocktails are potent and there were a lot of hangovers the next morning! Well worth it though.” 

Cocktails on Zoom
Wendy – Bristol – online cocktail party

“Just a quick ‘Thank you’ for your presentation to our members last night. There have been positive comments with people finding it informative and entertaining. Several husbands benefited from a cocktail or two too.

We would love to have you visit us in person (perhaps in November) when there could be 80ish in the hall. What do you think?”

Guest speakers with cocktail samples
Jan – Nottinghamshire W.I.

“Andrew from the Cocktail Shaker Boys made for a really entertaining and interactive evening. The event was a great ice-breaker giving us an opportunity to organise something a bit different for our staff whilst we all work remotely. Indeed, the evening continued on Teams long after the zoom session ended. Highly recommend.”

“What a fantastic virtual cocktail evening!  An informative and entertaining presentation combined with easy to follow demonstrations of cocktails for us to make at home. I have been inundated with messages from members saying how much they enjoyed it. Highly recommended!”

Stacey – Northampton Martinis W.I.

“Thank you to Andrew and Steve for a very informative, entertaining and interactive Zoom session. It was really well organised between the two of you, a great mix of facts and fun information about cocktails and their ingredients. Several members had planned ahead getting the ingredients lined up and followed along with the demos. Highly recommended for any group needing a refreshing Zoom call, and for the lucky folk who are more local perhaps a live event.”
