Take happy hour to a whole new level with an evening of cocktail making at WhataHoot, after all vodka might not make the world go round but it’s worth a shot…
This fine distillery has been converted from a 17th century warehouse in the heart of historic King’s Lynn. As well as the distilling and bottling suite, WhataHoot is home to a bespoke Gin School & Spirit Lounge where visitors can play around experimenting at a cocktail masterclass with a leading Norfolk mixologist.
You’ll be set up at an elegant bar station with mixology kit, spirits, liquors, juices and ingredients to add intriguing dimensions to your own bespoke creation. All you need to provide is a fabulous name!
Kick off with a champagne cocktail, then it’s time to get stuck in to mixing, muddling, and shaking – learning the skills to build some world-famous cocktails. There’s no rush, it’s all about perfecting your drink’s flavour and presentation with a twist of creative flair. You’ll also try out cool bar flaring skills like free-pouring, shaker spinning and bottle juggling. Eat your heart out Tom Cruise.
You’ll try 4 contrasting cocktails, make 2 and drink 2. Staying sober? Good decision – there are delectable mocktails available too! Then show off your bar flaring skills in a fun mix-off.
All guests receive a special certificate and everyone in the winning group gets a stainless-steel Manhattan cocktail shaker. The evening ends with vodka-based tipple. Who knew school could be this much fun?
