Let’s Get Shaking!
WELCOME TO YOUR
VIRTUAL MIXOLOGIST EXPERIENCE
We’re so excited to host you! Please prepare for your Pomegranate Margarita + Stump The Bartender Experience by following the steps below. If you have any questions along the way, just ask!
1. PREPARE YOUR TOOLS
- Cocktail Shaker – If you do not have a shaker, then a wide mouth jar or water bottle with a sealed lid will work!
- Measurement Tools – A jigger or shot glass but you can also use a tablespoon (2 tablespoons = 1oz)
- Citrus Juicer – Optional
- Your Favorite Glassware – This could be an elegant martini glass, a sturdy tumbler, or a mug from your grandma
- Ice – At least 2 cups per cocktail
2. PREPARE YOUR INGREDIENTS
If they haven’t already, your ingredients will arrive soon from Cocktail Courier. When they do, please refrigerate your limes right away.
During the experience, we’ll make two cocktails. First, a pomegranate margarita, focusing on flavor balance and mixology skills using the ingredients sent to you. Then it’s time to get creative! We’ll ask you to pick fun ingredients from your kitchen that you might want to add to your cocktail – try to stump the bartender to see if they can help you incorporate it into a cocktail! No need to prep those ingredients now, just a heads up for what’s to come!
For those who did not opt for ingredient delivery, here’s the list of ingredients to prep.
- 1.5 oz tequila blanco
- 0.75 oz lime juice
- 0.5 oz pomegranate syrup (recipe below)
- 0.25 oz agave nectar or simple syrup
- Dehydrated lime wheel or lime wedge
- Plus any extra fun ingredients from your kitchen
2 cups pomegranate juice
2 cups sugar
Combine pomegranate juice and sugar in a saucepan. Boil to dissolve. Let cool completely before using.
3. DOWNLOAD ZOOM
Please download the Zoom app on your desktop (not your phone). This will ensure a quality experience for you!
For a more interactive event, we encourage all guests to turn their video on during the experience.
YOU’RE ALL SET!
THE DAY BEFORE YOUR EXPERIENCE WE’LL SEND THE EVENT LINK TO YOUR INBOX. In the meantime, CHECK OUT OUR VIRTUAL ETIQUETTE TIPs or bar games.
(Yeah, we’d choose the bar games too.)
Prepare your space – Make sure you have a strong internet connection with little background noise if possible
Mute yourself when not speaking – This will eliminate background noise (like cocktail shaking!) that makes it difficult for others to hear the speaker.
Be sure to come prepared – Come with ingredients and supplies ready! Set yourself up in the kitchen where you have ample counter space and access to a sink.
Please come 10 minutes early – This way we can get to know each other and start right on time!
