So as you’ve seen in the film, the guys from UWE Bar School certainly showed us some pretty good cocktail-shakin’ tips and a nice easy bar food-inspired recipe! Try these yourself if you really want to impress at a party, or if you’ve got your mates round and fancy drinking something a bit more special and sophisticated. Here’s how to make what you saw in the video!
Equipment: the basics
Before you start thinking about the delicious liquid consumption ahead, you’ll need the right kit to be able to make your divine drinks. You can buy everything from Drink Stuff (either individually or in a cocktail starter kits, which aren’t too expensive) – here’s what the guys used in the video:
• Boston tin + glass (to shake the drinks)
• Hawthorn strainer (when pouring the drink out of the tin – it stops the ice coming out)
• 25ml and 50ml measures
• Bar spoon (stirring and swizzling the drinks)
• Muddler (for squishing all the fruit together – can just use a rolling or bottom of a bar spoon to save money!)
