“We used the Cocktail Shaker Boys for a corporate hospitality event, and they were an absolute pleasure to work with. From first meeting, right through to the event itself, they listened to our needs, made helpful suggestions about how to tailor their offering, and provided a very informative and enjoyable pre-dinner event for our guests. Learning about (and sampling) a variety of cocktails was great fun, and everyone agreed that they were made the best Espresso Martinis they had ever tasted!”
Our Clients Said...
“What a night! The Bride to be loved it! We invited the Cocktail Shaker Boys to come and do their thing at my niece’s hen weekend get-away in a lovely rented cottage. From the initial communication to the evening itself Andrew has been amazing, keeping me informed, sorting out pricing (we had a few changes) and the lead up to the event itself.
From the moment the guys (Andrew & Steve) arrived you could tell it was going to be a good night, they are both very professional, I personally liked the suits they wore!, and really good fun and easy to get along with. This was really important as you are inviting these guys into your home.
The night was great fun, the cocktails flowed and even the mocktails went down a treat. The guys also joined in with some of our silly games. The night flew by and we soon had to say goodbye to our lovely cocktails guys. They cleaned and tidied before they left and you wouldn’t know they had been apart from the tipsy bunch of ladies they left behind. For anyone looking for that something a little bit different to set their party or event aside from the rest, these guys are definitely for you! Can’t fault them at all.”
“Steve and Andrew were amazing. Firstly I can’t believe how far they had travelled for my hen party. But everything they provided, from the friendly welcome, to the drinks, to the laughs. They were professional, fun and generally lovely gentlemen. The cocktails were delicious and they were even kind enough to make the non-alcoholic ones a little alcoholic just to tailor what myself as the bride needed for the night.
They joined in our games and laughs and even posed for selfies. And weren’t just serving but were also a huge part of our evening. I will 100% recommend The Cocktail Shaker Boys to everyone and will also definitely be booking them again … even if it’s just for a causal Saturday night! Outstanding service. Thanks again. A very happy and (hungover) bride and head-sore hens.”
“Thank you so much for Saturday evening. You must see and be part of many parties, thanks for being part of mine. You took a lot of ribbing!!! There were a few sore heads, but everyone has said how much they enjoyed the cocktails.”
I hope our paths will cross again sometime, you have a unique product that brings lots of fun and joy.
“Thanks so much to you and Duncan for last night – it was fab! We’ve had brilliant feedback from our delegates and the cocktails were delicious.”
Thank to you and Steve for coming along to Groby W I last night. The feedback from the committee, members and visitors was amazing. Everyone really did enjoy the professional presentation from start to finish, and I’m sure gained knowledge all about making cocktails. Of course the tasting was a bonus! I will certainly recommend you to other WI’s if that is alright. I am sure you will be in demand in the future, so thanks for coming to Groby. It was lovely to meet you both. Hope to see you in 2020!
“Great fun”, “Entertaining”, “Really nice guys”, “Amusing”, “Interesting and Informative”. Just some of the positive comments from our members at the end of a lovely evening. We highly recommend The Cocktail Shaker Boys for a social group who appreciate something out of the ordinary and yet “very now” – suitable for a large or small group.
“What an amazing evening enjoyed by all of my daughters hen party at her home. I cannot thank cocktailshakerboys enough for their professionalism, enthusiasm and above all the quality of the cocktails provided. The whole experience was superb and I have no hesitation in fully recommending them. You will not be disappointed!” Ann – Leicester
“Where do I start with saying a big THANK YOU. You made the night, your personal touch was just excellent. The cocktails were fab so I was told by everyone and just the way you just got on and made everyone enjoy their night despite the weather.

THANK YOU AGAIN
“Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable evening with lots of laughter and a lively and informative presentation. The evening was rounded off with delicious cocktails and mocktails to try.” Many thanks for such an entertaining evening. Diane
“The Loughborough Ladies enjoyed a very entertaining evening in the company of Andrew and Steve, the Cocktail Shaker Boys. We were given a potted history of cocktails, learned all about the various components of cocktails and watched, mouths watering as Andrew and Steve demonstrated how to make a couple of cocktails and a couple of mocktails. Then, best of all, we got to taste them and they were truly delicious. Education and cocktails proved to be a very popular mix with the Ladies. I would certainly recommend the Cocktail Shaker Boys!”
“Thank you both very much for your excellent services on Saturday. You certainly helped make it a night to remember (even though I have a few blanks regarding the end of the night!). The cocktails went down a treat with everybody & all my guests had very positive things to say about them. Thank you for your friendly & professional service, I will certainly be recommending you to friends & family. Thank you once again – it was an excellent evening & fantastic entertainment too!” Kind regards Sam
“The Cocktail Shaker Boys provided a most enlightening insight into the world of cocktails. Andrew and Steve entertained us with their light-hearted, but informative, knowledge of cocktails and their ingredients and the tasty cocktail and mocktail samples provided at the end were most welcome on a cold evening.” Lynette – Leire WI
Thanks for coming to our meeting. We thoroughly enjoyed the demonstration and talk you gave. We had a fantastic turnout despite the snow and I think a lot of this was due to them looking forward to your visit. The talk was very informative and amusing. The samples were delicious as well. I hope we’ll get chance to book you again in the future. Liz
Emma B said “Thank you so much! You were absolutely fabulous and I can’t wait for next time” 🤗🎉
“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your presentation – it was one of the best evenings we have had for some time. It could well be that the wonderful cocktails we tried added to the enjoyment but I would heartily recommend the evening to others. Hope to see you again in the future.” Best Wishes Linda
“Andrew and Steve did a fantastic job for our Rock and Roll themed 50th Birthday party – they were professional throughout and their great cocktails, themed to the event, really got the party going. We would really recommend them.” Richard and Sally, South Leicestershire.
“Many thanks for an informative entertaining evening. The talk was presented in an amusing relaxed manner by Steve and Andrew. A lovely evening topped of by sampling delicious cocktails.” Jeanette

What a party and the Cocktail Shaker Boys were a huge part of its success. Everyone loved the cocktails and the special one made for me was delicious – not even a hangover in the morning! Thank you so much I would certainly recommend you – I’ll certainly use your services again..
“Would like to thank the shaker boys for the evening of yummy cocktails and some great laughs! The atmosphere was really laid back which is exactly what we were after, it was great that they were able to come to our holiday cottage! Duncan made us all feel comfortable and was up for a laugh too.. the bride got up and joined in with the cocktail making and had a great time!
The communication via email before the night was brilliant also, any questions or alterations that needed to made were answered quickly and nothing seemed like any trouble for them.. can’t fault their service and would definitely use them again in the future!” Sam H
“So impressed with the service and the cocktails from the cocktail shaker boys. If you are thinking of booking them – do it – I would highly recommend them. Thank you Andrew and Duncan”
“For a fabulous, fun and relaxing event we cannot recommend highly enough the Cocktail Shaker Boys. A plentiful and varied menu to suit all tastes, these boys know their stuff!”
“Thanks for a memorable evening – still talked about!!!
Huge apologies that I haven’t got around doing this for you! Here are a few photos….there are more which I’ll have to find.” Deb x
On behalf of our W.I. I would like to thank you both for a great evening. So many of the ladies have been in touch with me to say what a super presentation it was and how much they enjoyed it. They praised your clear and concise talk and the way you delivered it. A great mixture of facts, figures and fun!!! And of course the lovely tasters at the end. You have inspired us to make and try new cocktails. Thank you both for making our evening special. Kindest regards, Ruth
“Very efficient, reliable and professional service. Great fun, everyone really enjoyed our party, delicious cocktails…”
“A huge thank you to you both for my big night, you were absolutely amazing and everybody commented how good the cocktails were and served with the best humour. I would happily recommend you to anyone.”
“We all had a fantastic night and Joe and Duncan were both great, very friendly and joined in the fun! There was a nice range of cocktail/mocktails so everybody had a great choice! We’ll be calling again for our next party!”
“The Cocktail Shaker Boys come highly recommended and were the absolute highlight of my recent 40th. All guests were served with flair and the best cocktails I have ever tried. Thanks” Vicki x
“Thank you so much for making my wife’s 30th Birthday party a success. From the moment the bar opened I don’t think the queue was below 5 people until the time you closed, you got no chance to rest (sorry), everyone has contacted me to say how great the cocktails were and your knowledge of each drink was great. To say I only organised this on Thursday you did a fantastic job of arranging someone to be there at such short notice and the variation was amazing. I will definitely be looking to use your services again as will quite a few who attended, hopefully with a little more notice next time. Thanks again” Jamie
” thanks for your support of last night’s event. Loved to see you in action. I thought the Cocktail Shaker Boys were first class.”
“Thank you so much for helping to make my 40th Birthday a memorable occasion. Andrew and Duncan ( the cocktail shaker boys) supplied my guests with a delicious selection of cocktails. They were professional, punctual and very friendly. They organised the cocktails well and discretely tidied up, which helped the party flow well. I have had a lot of positive feedback from my friends and we look forward to using them again in the future! Thank you once again.” Louise
“Thank you so much for Saturday. We had a great night and we loved the cocktails! My feet haven’t touched the ground since!”
“Having a chosen a venue for my 40th birthday party without a licensed bar, we wanted a way to get the party started and put everyone at ease. And wow did the cocktailshakerboys make that happen very quickly? Within half an hour all the guests were talking about which cocktail they were going to have next.
It was a great way of getting everyone meeting and talking as they all gathered around the cocktails. The following day everyone told us how much they enjoyed the party and especially the cocktails.
The whole experience was excellent, from meeting with Andrew & Steve, to discuss the party theme and what cocktails we might like, to seeing the menu they prepared. Then on the night they dealt with everything, leaving us to welcome guests etc.”
I would strongly recommend the Cocktailshakerboys if you want to hold a party that people will still be talking about months later.”
“We were delighted to welcome the Cocktail Shaker Boys to a 50th birthday evening party at our home in April. We had initially hesitated at the cost, but booked anyway. We certainly got brilliant value for money with Andrew and the team delivering all they promised, and more. The cocktails chosen with us were perfect for the 70 or so guests, with a menu of five alcoholic and two non-alcoholic. With a professional set up, appearance and approach, mixing was then done smoothly and efficiently, and I particularly liked the double measures for me as co-host, since I couldn’t get to the bar as often! The team collected glasses throughout the evening and at the end, and worked cleanly and tidily throughout. Best of all, we have had rave reviews from our guests, and I think more bookings will be part of their party planning, and ours.” Best wishes, and again thank you, Neil
“As a guest to a 50th birthday party held at my friend’s home, I thought the Cocktail Shaker Boys were fantastic.”
“On behalf of Queniborough WI I would like to thank you for a fabulous evening. The cocktails were the very best we had ever had and we also enjoyed hearing about the history of cocktails. You were very professional and had a great sense of humour. Hope to see you again in the near future.” Thank you once again. Carole
“I would just like to say thanks for making my 40th birthday party a great evening. Everyone is still talking about it now, and that is down to the effect the cocktails had on everyone. Thanks again.” Helen
“This is the second time we’ve booked The Cocktail Shaker Boys for an event and we will definitely be booking them for more in the future. This time it was for my 21st birthday party and they were fantastic! Throughout the booking process the boys were efficient and professional, replying to our emails quickly and always ensuring that we were happy with the arrangements. They arrived at the party full of energy and looking very smart. The cocktail menus looked great and everyone was excited to choose a cocktail and watch it being made in front of them (some of the guests even helped with the shaking!). My party was made that extra bit special having my favourite cocktails available and knowing all my guests were having a great time with a drink they loved! Thank you boys!” Georgia
“You were at my 21st birthday party on Saturday. Thank you so much, we all had an amazing time and everyone has said how brilliant it was having cocktails made for us all night!”
“Very professional made our party !! Every one looked after, non alcoholic and alcoholic cocktails were lush and a bonus they cleaned up after themselves!! Will defo book them again :)”
“I held a cocktail party at my house with a group of 10 friends and had a fabulous memorable night in! It was more cost effective for us to stop in than it was to go out on the town……the cocktails were the best we had ever tried and the cocktail shaker boys were professional, friendly and had an excellent sense of humour when the rest of us became rather raucous! Thanks for a fantastic evening which we are still talking about 6 weeks later! Can’t wait to book another party, perhaps a BBQ in the summer with cocktails?!” Claire T
“Thank you, thank you, what a wonderful evening, you certainly helped to make the party a great success for us all. It was great meeting you at last after all our communications; your organisation was brilliant which took the worry & stress out of the party arrangements, we knew we were in safe hands.
The cocktails were delicious, you probably noticed I sampled a few!! The party guests loved the choice of cocktails, your professionalism & friendly approach made us all feel very relaxed & happy, especially the birthday girl.
Many thanks to you both for doing such a fabulous job. Good luck for the future, I hope I can find another excuse when I can have a Cocktail Party. Thanks Ruth
“The Cocktail Shaker Boys made my party eternally memorable. The verdict was unanimous: all my guests thought the drinks were fantastic, with the Boys and their cocktails very much the centre of attention. Their visit beforehand to agree the menu selection and the organisation meant everything ran really smoothly on the night and I was able to spend all my time with my friends.
I won’t hesitate to book them again for my next ‘landmark’ event – my friends would never forgive me – and would recommend them as a great addition to any celebration.”
“The evening was amazing with delicious cocktails from a personalised menu. Thank you so much! I wont hesitate to recommend you!” Hanna
“I hired the Cocktail Shaker Boys for my 40th birthday celebrations with the girls. The evening was amazing with delicious cocktails from a personalised menu. We had two hours of cocktails and three drinks each which was the perfect amount and time for pre dinner celebrations. Thank you so much! I wont hesitate to recommend you! Thank you again for such a fab evening.” Hanna
“When my son requested a cocktail party for his 21st birthday, the thought of organising spirits, mixers and glasses for a range of cocktails for 40 people was not appealing…….But the Cocktail Shaker Boys provided the perfect solution! We agreed on a menu of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails and then Andrew organised the rest. I only had to provide tables to serve from and ice – so I had the easy part.
The party was a great success with all age groups as there was something for everyone. At the end Andrew cleared away and washed up so there was nothing left for me to do except carry on with the party! Anne, Gilmorton”
“I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you for helping to make Saturday night such a fabulous success. Apparently there were a few headaches the next day and most of us felt very ‘tired’. Probably didn’t help that we also consumed 10 bottles of fizz too!! I will be recommending you, and will probably call on your services again sometime. Once again, thank you.” Regards Carolyn
“Thanks for all your hard work on Saturday night. A great time was had by all and the cocktail bar along with bartenders (and Mojitos) were a complete hit with all our guests! Thanks again. Really appreciate all your efforts.” Tracie
“Our WI meeting was eagerly anticipated and we had a number of additional visitors. Behind an array of bottles, Andrew and Steve gave a very informative and entertaining presentation about the history of cocktails and their ingredients. This was followed by the all important sampling opportunity! We were offered both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails to savour which were much enjoyed by all present and there was still time for questions at the end. Many thanks once again for a excellent evening.”
“Had a great evening full of information, well done boys.” Cocktail Shaker Boys presentation for our W.I. group meeting at Foxton Village Hall – South Leicestershire.

“Absolutely loved the Cocktail Shaker Boys cocktails! The Gordy Smith and Kimmy K cocktails went down very well!”
Note from our head mixologist. We personalised the menu to fit the girls Kardashian them. The Gordy Smith (the stag) was our take on a Rusty Nail with added stem ginger and orange bitters. The Kimmy K aka the Pornstar Martini

“A big thank you to the Cocktail Shaker Boys!

A very helpful team who made the planning of the event easy, and delivered an enjoyable evening.”

“Thank you so much for serving such delicious cocktails – it certainly added a touch of glamour to our 30s style party. Guests have commented on how lovely they were and how they enhanced the party. I was most impressed with the punctuality and service and you made me feel most at ease as i was a little nervous about the evening, but i needn’t have been thanks to you guys! My favourite was the Cosmopolitan, and there were plenty of sore heads the next day! A huge thank you.x”
“Thanks so much Andy and Steve for providing such a fantastic evening at my home, for myself and fellow members of Market Harborough Lions Branch Club.
The brief talk at the beginning on the history of cocktails was amusing, as well as educational, and then the cocktails started flowing …
Five cocktails and Three ‘mocktails’ catered for all tastes – The Shakerboys’ own ‘St Louis’ proved the biggest favourite of the evening!
I wouldnt hesitate to recommend them, great service, value and most of all …. serious fun!!”
