revolution cocktail masterclass, birmingham.


Whether it be for a hen do, work party or corporate team building idea, a cocktail masterclass can be a brilliant way to have a bit of fun, get to know a group and perhaps learn a little along the way. A group of us Midlands bloggers were invited along to the Birmingham Revolution on Broad Street to put their new cocktail class to the test. It turned out it was the perfect way to break the ice for a blogger meet up too (pun intended).


From £25 per head, you can arrange a night to suit you. Be it nibbles or a full three course meal, simply book an experience to suit the occasion. Everyone had the chance to make a cocktail one-on-one, as well as team cocktail making games and bingo shots throughout the 90 minute lesson.


The night begun with a complimentary Bubblegum Daiquiri, complete with nostalgic sherbet flying sauces. There was a non drinker amongst us too, who had a mocktail especially made. Similarly the nibbles had been catered to tastes, with two veggies and a vegan in our group.


If you haven't heard of Revolution before, their known for their vodka. In particular, flavours shots. I made a Blank Canvas cocktail, which was topped up with my favourite flavour. In case you were wondering, of course I chose Bakewell tart. Without hesitation.


Through the night, the lovely bloggers Amelia of xameliax, Elena of Lenny Loves Life, Luci of Made by Luci, Laura of Full to the Brum and Emily of Good Girl Gone Brum made a mix of classic Cosmos (Amelia's signature cocktail) right through to interesting Blueberi Pie, made with Stoli Blueberi vodka.


We then moved on to games! Who knew how difficult it could be to make a cocktail... with your back turned... switching the mixologist half way through...? (Sorry Luci!)


To finish the evening, Paulie made a showstopping shot waterfall from some of the best fruity flavours!


We ended up with quite a concoction of cocktails to enjoy whilst we enjoyed pizza, sliders, salad and sweet potato fries. And of course I now have a certificate to prove it (one for the CV...)

Thanks again to Revolution for having us and Paulie for being such a good host. (I'm not sure those hens have the urge to Instagram as much as us lot did!) It was certainly a fun night and would make a great hen do, birthday party or work gathering for sure. Now to figure out how to make Bakewell tart vodka for myself.
