A brief history of the cocktail 

 

Cocktails are traditionally thought of as an American innovation, but they were actually at least partly inspired by British punches. Big bowls of spirits mixed with fruit juice, spices, and other flavors, consumed in punch houses in the 18th century. 

 

The term cocktail was even first seen in a British newspaper printed March of 1798. But the term wasn’t really defined as we know it, until 1806, when The Balance and Columbian Repository of Hudson, New York, pinned the cocktail down to what we know today. 

 

Cocktail the Movie

 

Did you know? Tom Cruise starred in a movie called Cocktail in 1988. This is one of my favourite films!  He plays Brian who works in a bar in Jamaica. This is a romantic comedy with highs and lows.

 

 

Cocktail Making Class

 

A cocktail making class is the perfect activity for a hen do. Not only does it provide a fun and engaging experience for the group, but it also allows everyone to bond over creating delicious drinks together. 

 

This was me 8 years ago in Birmingham, enjoying the unique element to our celebration:

 

 

My favourite cocktail 

 

I have to wrap this post up sharing what my favourite would be. I'd have to say a classic Pina Colada. Rum is my go-to spirit. 3 easy ingredients that collaborated with ice, tastes divine. 

 

Thank you for reading as always.

Have you experienced a cocktail making class before? Would you like to participate in one?
