At a cocktail party recently, we went with a new formula. Carolyn had 14 people at her 50th birthday gathering in Harborough. So, we had the chance to try out something a little different. Yeah, we mixed it up a little!
We ran a usual 5+2 menu. That’s a choice of 5 alcoholic cocktails & 2 non-alcoholic mocktails. But then in addition to the menu for the last 3/4 hour or so, we also handed out a selection of cocktail minis. All designed to tease and tantalise the tastebuds. Ones we hoped her guests hadn’t tried before. Some in-house creations, plus others we’ve discovered. The idea was to offer unusual flavours and the cocktail minis certainly became a talking point. Fortunately the ‘audience’ entered into the spirit of things and guessed at the ingredients of the 3 minis we served out.
Still with lavender, PX sherry, liquorice and vanilla vodka among the ingredients it made for an interesting experiment!
If you want cocktails on your menu, but you want something a bit different and some unusual cocktails to entice your friends, this is a great format. You can even give us some ideas to include if you want to. We don’t mind a challenge. We’re often in the apothecary here at Shaker Boys Towers messing about with new ingredients and flavour combinations. Basil, rosemary, thyme, absinthe, lemongrass, foamy concoctions, sparkly combinations. We also like working with specific colours. How about some purple or lilac cocktails? Red, blue even, green, pink. Let your imagination run!
Admittedly we can only offer this with smallish groups. 10 or so people. If that’s you and the idea appeals, give us a call. Cocktail Shaker Boys provide a range of stunning cocktails from the standard classics through to some of the more modern and innovative concoctions.
