Another season, another W.I. presentation evening for the Cocktail Shaker Boys. We’ll be presenting our talk “Everything you wanted to know about cocktails but were afraid to ask” again this week. Looking forward to it.
We’ll be entertaining the lovely ladies of Little Leicestershire (we do like a bit of alliteration from time to time.) Our hour slot includes a cocktail making demonstration and sampling session at the end. For some reason that seems to be the most popular bit! Can’t think why!
We’ll guide them through the history of cocktails, from prohibition up to the modern day. We cover a lighting stop tour around the world’s great spirits and liqueur categories, with some anecdotes about the British Navy and rum, plus Czar Nicholas and Pietr Smirnov, plus an explanation of why some Cognac is described as fine champagne VSOP.
We include some top tips on cocktail making at home and then we’re into doing the demo.
If you’re part of a company or a club or association and you get involved in arranging guest speakers, bear us in mind. If you and your audience like cocktails that is – of course!
