The Speakeasy Cocktail Class
The roaring twenties, a time of bathtub gin, prohibition, jazz, and a good time. When liquor quality was not like today, folks had to get creative to cover the taste of poor quality booze. A night out meant a bit of danger, hiding from the police in secret gin joints, and the style of the cocktails matched the fun and mischievous nature of the times.
We have recreated the speakeasy with a class that focuses on the history of the 20’s booze culture and, of course, making a few! Perfect for a theme Hen Party or just a roaring good time. Learn to make a few of the authentic cocktails of the time that would always get the club swinging.
A few sample cocktails to choose from for your party to make;
An Authentic Sour- gin, vodka, whiskey or amaretto/Gin Ricky- classic for all gin lovers /Hemmingway Daiquiri-a drink to make other people interesting/Mary Pickford- free to shake and stir to your hearts content/French Martini-a classic!
