Easy – Host a Social and Cocktail party.
I was contacted last month by the Social and Cocktail guys and they offered me a free evening of cocktails in return for a wee blog post. I was delighted to be asked as we often host parties in our flat and I love cocktails – it was the perfect fit!
I didn’t quite understand at first – What do I need to do? Do I need to supply anything? Who do I invite? The answers couldn’t have been more simple.
What do I need to do?
The way it works is that you supply the venue and invite people and they do the rest; bring the bar, barman, drinks, glasses, ice and accessories. So off I went and set up a quick Facebook event, invited some friends and gave the flat a quick tidy.
Here is a quick video demonstrating what they do:
As you can see, we had the perfect space for the bar to sit, in between our kitchen and living room. However, they can easily build this anywhere and it’s really quick to do (as I stood and watched).
Once set up the drinks started flowing very quickly. First up was a strawberry daiquiri, then a mojito, followed by a Bramble, passionfruit daiquiri and finishing with a Toblerone martini. A great selection of drinks and all very, VERY tasty.
The result: lots of very happy faces…
Our bartender Callum did a sterling job at keeping the drinks flowing. We were always well looked after and if there was anything that needed adapting, for example you didn’t like a certain spirit, then he would make an alternative to suit you. As a couple of my guests couldn’t make it there was a bit of booze left over so he made us a few extra drinks. They really do go out of their way to make sure you have an awesome night.
The Bramble was the cocktail I was looking forward to the least as I’m not a fan of gin (long story) but this was actually delicious.
My friend Steph even got involved and made her own passionfruit daiquiri – total pro.
The end of the night.
The night started at 7.30pm and finished around 12.30am. At the end of the night Callum tidied everything away, washed everything and voilà, I have hosted an awesome party with minimal effort.
