This was a wonderful opportunity for our team to come together to do something fun while sheltering in place. It was also a great opportunity for people to connect socially from the comfort of their own homes and experience a completely different style event. The Avital team was extremely easy to work with and made everything so simple for us. We highly recommend this event! – Brie, Group of 30, Virtual Mixologist
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
It was really a great time and we appreciated the creativity in doing this virtually. And I loved the drink choice. – Lisa, 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 some international participants?

    Guests outside of delivery range can participate “BYO” style. We’ll provide an ingredients list in advance for them to procure their own items locally. Or we have separate options for Canada and UK groups!

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

    Our Featured Cocktails can be modified to non-alcoholic by substituting (guest-provided) seltzer, tonic, or ginger beer for the alcohol in the recipe. OR choose our “Featured Mocktail” experience if the whole group would like a default non-alcoholic recipe!

  • What if I don't know my total # of guests?

    That’s okay! Book your event with a deposit for your minimum attendance estimate. Final count due 10 business days prior to event (with your mailing addresses.) Continue to add “BYO” guests at any time.

  • 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.

  • Is there time to share our company's content?

    Yes! Standard run time is 45-60 minutes, with flexibility for up to 10 minutes of your own content. If you need additional time for your content, you can add more event time at cost (our staff stays, we host the meeting) OR host on your own platform account (we join you for our 1 hour, not additional staff time cost.)

  • What if I need a shorter event?

    Our Mixology experience is carefully curated to be a cohesive, energetic experience for your guests and works best when you stick to our well-rehearsed timing. (Think of it like asking the actors in a play to make it just a little shorter for you – they haven’t rehearsed that way!) We also offer a curated 15 minute “Kickoff” experience for groups needing just a quick, energetic intro to their event.
