Description

“If you like Piña Coladas”… and let’s be honest, who doesn’t? On the 15th of August of 1954 a legend was created that remains a symbol of tropical good times and escapism. Many will have tried substandard versions, but I can say with authority that I am able to teach and present to you not just the original recipe but a total of 5 versions that take up right up to the present day. After all, 6 years ago I was commissioned to create the cocktail menu at the drink’s birthplace - the Caribe Hilton in Puerto Rico - where they still sell and hang their hat on my recipes and the idea of ‘the evolution of the Piña Colada’. For a unique opportunity to avoid travelling over 4000 miles for the authentic experience, look no further.

A history on the drink, the hotel, the bartenders and some controversy, a brief history on exotic drinks and rum itself as well as 5* expertly blended versions of the drink set to a tropical soundtrack will guarantee a good time by all…

*don't worry, not all of these will contain creamy ingredients!

This masterclass is designed for 2 people but can easily accommodate up to 6 with a minor surcharge for the additional drinks. All ingredients, ice, glassware and equipment will be provided, and any ice or non-alcoholic ingredients left over will be gifted for further experimentation. I will only need ready access to running water, disposal and two plug sockets. For larger groups we would need to reuse glasses for each drink, so as a landlady used to say to me: "Drink it or loose it!"

About the HOMEtainer

I have worked for over two decades in the drinks industry, won multiple awards and represented the U.K. several times in cocktail competitions. For half of my career I worked in some of the most respected bars in the world, whilst the other half has been spent working full time as an international drinks consultant, which has lead me to create hundreds of original cocktails, bar programmes and concepts all over the globe, and train countless bartenders. I also host and hold seminars, judge competitions and work as a drinks writer, which in a nutshell makes me something of an authority on the world of drinks and a specialist particularly on cocktails. I will bring this experience into your home, creating cocktail-led events which are as fun as they are informative, whether they are focussed on your favourite tipple or teach you how to mix like the best.
