A big part of the course will focus on making products that form the basis of a lot of incredible cocktails. From simple sugar syrups to very complex grenadines, you’ll cook and cover a bunch of different products that are essential to fantastic cocktail making.
On the second day of the course, you’ll apply everything you have learned and whip up the best cocktail you can. It can be a twist on a classic or something you’ve invented yourself. Afterwards, you’ll share the recipe with the group and take inspiration from each other's marvellous creations!
You’ll learn to make cocktails that look as if they had been freshly served at a world-class cocktail bar. You’ll be topping off your masterpieces with pineapple sushi, chocolate moulds, sugared mint, and more.

Course content overview
To get to know the cocktail families in depth, we’ll work our way forwards through time, starting with drinks made around the 5th century! Our instructors will show you how to prepare each drink whilst explaining its background: why it came about, how it used to be made, etc. Some of the facts you would never guess!
Find out what it takes to make a cocktail taste absolutely perfect. You’ll learn the different methods, techniques, and types of equipment required to make flawless drinks. You will discover:
- Which method is most suitable for each drink
- Why some drinks are shaken, stirred, or rolled
- Jiggers and strainers
- How to shake a drink, types of shakers and their uses
- Types of bar spoons
- Different mixing techniques
These masterclasses will stimulate both your mind and mouth. Understand what distinguishes each product or group and get your taste buds tingling as you try to recognise each ingredient on your tongue.
Here are just a few of the mixtures you’ll prepare:
- Fat wash
- Dehydrated garnish
- Rapid infusion
And you can count on your instructor to offer you awesome, unexpected twists.
Just like in MasterChef, you’ll be given a box of random ingredients with which you’ll have the opportunity to create a delicious cocktail!
