All Bar One on Newhall Street was the venue for a cocktail masterclass. We arrived to find out that we were going to be making Mojitos, French Martinis and Disaronno Sour. I loved the combination of something I hadn’t tried before (French Martini) with one of my favourites (Mojito).
First up was a Mojito, which is one of my favourite cocktails to order whenever I’m at a cocktail bar. I was interested to see how this was done because whilst I have often drunk them, I’d never made one before. I’d kind of assumed that with most cocktails you put the ingredients together and give them a bit of a shake, but it seems there is more to it than this. I think I’ll enjoy my mojitos more now that I know how they are made. I liked that it was explained how to make it less sweet and a bit more sour because I prefer a drier taste for my drinks.
Next up was a new one to me: French Martini. This is quite a sweet cocktail with its mix of Ciroc Pineapple, Chambord and pineapple juice, but it was very nice. I think I’d just have one of these in an evening as I think I’d find a second one a bit sweet for my taste buds.
I’d very much recommend a cocktail masterclass at All Bar One, Newhall Street, Birmingham. We had friendly, fun instruction and got to drink our creations. I think it would be a perfect way to celebrate a birthday or just have a get together with a group of friends.
