Join us on Thursday 22nd July, as we welcome crafter of cocktails Matt Hollidge, who will be helping us to get ready for the weekend with crowd-pleasing creations, live on our Instagram at 6pm.
Matt Hollidge is a home bartender, mixing cocktails and producing content in his spare time while working with drinks and lifestyle brands to craft unique serves and experiences. Previously crowned Home Bartender of the Year, his creations have appeared on the menus of top bars in New York, London and Sydney, the pages of national press and the judges’ table at global cocktail competitions.
Gearing up to entertain guests and seeking some inspiration when it comes to drinks? This event’s for you; @theamateurmixologist will be introducing us to beverages that are perfect for the summer party season, including a Spanish G&T, Basil Smash, French 75 and a Southside.
If you’re keen to spruce up your cocktail making skills and join @theamateurmixologist in action, here’s what you’ll need to ‘mix-along’ during the live event:
- Sofa water OR Prosecco/Champagne
- Sugar Syrup (prepare this in advance of the event) take 2 parts caster sugar & 1 part water, stir slowly on the hob at a low heat until all the sugar has melted and the liquid is clear and glassy. Leave to cool, bottle and place in the fridge.
- Alternative spirits to have on hand if you wish: rum, whiskey, tequila etc
- Lots of ice
- Cocktail shaker & strainer OR sealable drinks bottle/jam jar & sieve/tea strainer
Ready for another glass?
We look forward to seeing you there!
