Summer cocktail parties. They are certainly popular at the moment. And we must admit the weather has helped out with long warm balmy evenings. Cocktails out on the decking last night for a client’s 40th birthday. We also did a corporate summer quiz and cocktails night in Great Bowden on Friday night. Yes, you’re right – we weren’t the quiz bit!
And that’s in addition to the joint 40th party we ran with a full team of 4 at Kibworth Rugby Club, serving cocktails to 140 guests. It seems the fantastically minty chocolatey Grasshopper is a firm favourite : liquid Aero is how most people describe it. However the Nigella Lawson Green apple Martini which we make with Gin also has many converts.
However with last night’s party we also served up lots of our classic 2 mocktails – alcohol free cocktails : the Merry Berry Cherry and the China Blue.
So what’s next in the experimental world of the Cocktail Shaker Boys? Well, we’re interested in developing an idea to provide cold shots to guests on arrival. However we need some portable way of transporting glasses in something freezing. Anyone got any ideas? email@example.com if you have.
