Virtual Cocktail Parties
There is no doubt the world is a very different place at the moment with covid changing life as we knew it. Many people are looking for novel ways to celebrate and socialise with friends, family and loved ones whilst adhering to government guidelines and staying safe at the same time. Home Cocktails was created during the first lockdown to bring a little bit of fun to people during these uncertain times. We are now pleased to be able to offer you a full virtual package for any occasion.
Our cocktail boxes can now be posted all over the UK and internationally to unite people from all over the country and indeed the world. We are able to bring you something fun, entertaining and engaging from the safety of your own home. We post everything required for the cocktail workshop and run our cocktail masterclasses via zoom for a fun filled hour or 2 to be enjoyed with friends and family. Lots of fun and most importantly staying safe at the same time.
Boxes & Delivery
Our cocktail boxes are couriered direct to your door for contactless delivery. We can post to multiple addresses and each person will receive their own Home Cocktails box of goodies. The boxes contain everything required to make your chosen cocktails including fresh ingredients. All the group will need is plenty of ice which is easily attained from the supermarket with the weekly shop. The boxes will include a cocktail shaker and measure as standard to make your chosen cocktails. You pick the cocktails you want to make from our menu of over 60 choices and we send everything required to make those chosen cocktails.
All our boxes incur a standard £7.50 delivery fee. Our boxes are sent overnight for next day delivery so the ingredients arrive as fresh as possible with full tracking details so you can track your boxes. Please remember to add the cost of shipping with your chosen package. Couriers are very busy at the moment due to Covid and shipping alcohol incurs higher shipping costs so we are unable to offer shipping.
Our virtual cocktail classes are run from our dedicated virtual bar at our Home Cocktails HQ in Bristol. The class will be hosted by Carrie the founder of Home Cocktails and Bols master bar tender. The classes are designed to be informative and educational but with the emphasis on having lots of fun in a relaxed environment. Carrie has years of experience running event bars and teaching masterclasses so you can be guaranteed plenty of fun and banter along with lots of professional tips and advice.
Our preferred platform is zoom which we run through our pro account. We will send the booker a link a few days before the event. However if you would prefer to use Microsoft teams, your own zoom account or another platform we can happily do this upon request. Our virtual cocktail classes last approx 60 mins depending on how many cocktails you choose.
Once everyone has joined Carrie will give the group a brief introduction and explain what is in your boxes, what equipment will be required and make sure you are all set up for class and have everything required. You will then be shown how to make your first cocktail strep by step and be able to follow along live with your host. Once each cocktail has been made there will be a 10-15 min interval to allow you to enjoy your cocktail and have a chat between yourselves before getting ready to make the next cocktail. Your host will be available in a break room for any questions during the each interval. The workshops are private for your group so we run the workshop at a pace to suit and most requests can be catered for.
Just Cocktails - £35pp
If you have plenty of alcohol and cocktail equipment at home and just require someone to run a cocktail master class for you this option is ideal. You choose the cocktails you would like to make and we will send you a list of everything that is required. Each member of the group can then purchase these items themselves to keep costs as low as possible and use equipment you already have to hand. We will host a cocktail workshop using our zoom platform and show you how to make your chosen cocktails. This keeps costs as low as possible and removes any postage charges. It’s also a great way to use up bottles of alcohol you’ve had hanging around the house and don’t know what to do with!
Virtual Party Run By Us - £45pp
A virtual cocktail class run by us. We will send a box with everything required to make your chosen cocktails. Our host will provide a virtual zoom class for you and your group and will show you how to make each cocktail step by step. Perfect if you don’t want to host your own cocktail class and would prefer a littler more structure to keep things on track and have someone run the workshop for you. Using our pro zoom account also means you don’t have to worry about running out of time. The boxes will have 2 cocktail choices but each cocktail makes 2 servings so there will be 4 drinks in total. All the cocktail equipment required to make your chosen cocktails will be be provided so you don’t have to worry about trying to source equipment. Our host will run the session so you can relax and enjoy the session with a few drinks without stressing about organising the group or session. Plus you wish have a professional on hand to answer any questions and guide you along the way.
Triple The Fun - £60
A virtual class run by us with everything included as above but with 3 cocktail choices so 6 drinks in total. Each cocktail choice makes 2 servings but you don’t have to drink all 6 cocktails unless you want to! The host will show you how to make each cocktail choice so 3 cocktails within in the workshop. However you will have enough ingredients to make another serving of each cocktail but this can be done after the virtual class if you wish to enjoy a few relaxed drinks together after the workshop or keep the ingredients for another time to suit.
Looking for a few extra fun activities to add to your virtual party? From just £5pp we can include some fun little extras. If you would like a fun cocktail quiz to be run by our host we can add a question sheet to your boxes and our host will run a fun quiz for the group at the end of the session. Fancy a cocktail mystery round? We can add a bag of ‘mystery ingredients’ for you to create your own cocktail using the mystery ingredients and anything you can get your hands on in house! If you would like snacks added to your boxes we can also provide things like crisps, cheddars and nuts for some savoury snacks if required.
