Many thanks we really had a blast with Suzu, he was super fantastic at teaching us how to make a super yummy drink :) – Char, Virtual Mixologist

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's in the ingredient box?

    Ingredients delivery upgrades include all the consumable items required to make your cocktail (enough for 2!) such as specialty syrups or bitters, whole fresh citrus fruit, garnish, and YES the alcohol, too!

  • What if I don't have a cocktail shaker or tools?

    No problem! We’ll send you a prep sheet in advance that notes common substitute tools. A jar with lid is a great substitute shaker, measuring spoons will sub for a jigger, etc. You can also upgrade to include a professional Boston style cocktail shaker with your order.

  • When do you need our addresses?

    Addresses must be submitted at least 10 business days in advance to ensure pre-event delivery of your ingredients. Or add rush shipping to reduce to 7 business days in advance (+$25 per delivery).

  • What if I have guest who don't drink alcohol?

    We welcome participants who choose not to consume alcohol. While the event does reference alcohol, our bartenders and hosts can provide guests with substitution suggestions to adapt the recipe for a non-alcoholic beverage variation.

  • Can we choose the cocktail?

    Featured cocktails rotate seasonally with availability of specialty ingredients, so we cannot guarantee a particular cocktail in advance. For repeat guests, please let us know if you’ve already learned a certain recipe and we’ll be sure to program something new for you.
