Getting tired of the same ol’ happy hours with your coworkers? Are you logging into zoom and running out of things to talk about? It may be a sign that your team needs a more interactive experience.

That’s where virtual mixology classes come in.

We’re here to walk you through what type of class this is and how it can enhance the workplace experience.

Let's get into it.

What is a Mixology Class?

This is more than just a happy hour event. It’s an experience that invites your team members to connect and learn a new skill or two. The experience is designed to challenge them to put their bartending skills to the test and try out new cocktail recipes, concepts, and tips and tricks to crafting the perfect cocktail.

If this sounds like something your team would enjoy, here are our top 10 choices to choose from.

Margarita Class

Who doesn’t love a refreshing, flavorful margarita? We sure do! That’s why this margarita class is a crowd favorite among companies! This sixty-minute cocktail class is run by a knowledgeable bar crew ready to show you the ins and outs of making the best-tasting margarita. You’ll have an opportunity to learn how to craft three cocktails with all real ingredients. Throughout the experience, your team will get all the tips and tricks, some boozy history, and socializing time with their coworkers!

Run Mixology Class

For this experience, all your team members will get to explore the taste of rum in a new and exciting way. They’ll receive a kit of supplies with everything from apple cider syrup to dehydrated pineapple to craft delicious creations. Throughout the experience, they’ll be encouraged to connect with their coworkers, sit back, and enjoy themselves (and a few cocktails, of course!)

Whiskey Mixology Class

If you have a group of whiskey lovers who can’t stop talking about their favorite whiskeys on Slack, we found the perfect virtual experience for you. During this virtual cocktail class, your team will have the opportunity to create three dazzling cocktail recipes. The host will go over the basic skills and let them use the ingredients sent to them to craft their creations and show off their bartending skills. With this experience, your team is in for good sips, social connections, and quality time with one another!

Gin Mixology Class

Who doesn't love a refreshing gin and tonic after a long day at work? Treat your team members to this sensational experience and teach them a new recipe or two with this Gin mixology class! Everyone will receive a kit full of gin, lime, elderflower tonic, and other ingredients that go perfectly with the taste of a good gin. Your host will show you exactly how to use the kit and encourage a social environment where everyone can enjoy themselves.

Seasonal Cocktails

What better way to celebrate the holidays or the change of a season than with a hands-on seasonal cocktail experience? This one-hour class will teach your team the cocktail hacks and tips they need to show off their mixology skills at their next party or event. Everyone will receive everything they need to be successful, including a cocktail kit with all the bar tools and artisan syrups. At the end of the experience, everyone will have created three delicious cocktails and left with a new skill or two they can use in the kitchen later!

Vodka Mixology

We’ll be honest with you: This class is an absolute party! It’s just as much of a social event as it is a cocktail experience! Your team will come together to create three different vodka-inspired cocktails with their team members. Before the event, everyone will receive a kit with all of the ingredients they need. This experience can accommodate 20-2000 participants.

Shake Up Happy Hour

Want to plan a happy hour event with your virtual team? You’ve come to the right place. This shake-it-up cocktail experience is hosted by a talented and friendly bartender that’s ready to entertain and share fun stories with your team! During this mixology class experience, everyone will get to learn new skills, converse with their coworkers and sip on their delicious creations. The best part? You get to choose which drinks you want to make with your team! The experience is one hour long and can accommodate group sizes of 15-300! 

Elevated Mixology

This high-quality experience shows your team how to craft and put a twist on two classic cocktails. Together, they’ll learn how to make a Not So Old Fashioned and a Paloma. The hour-long experience is perfect for groups of 5 to 200 and is a great way to celebrate your employee's accomplishments or an upcoming holiday.

The History of Cocktails

This mixology class is slightly different in all the right ways. It’s a unique happy hour experience that invites your team members to learn more about the history of these cocktails. Everyone will receive six bottled cocktails, delivered straight to their house. Have some team members that don’t drink but want to join in on the fun? Don’t worry, there’s a non-alcoholic beverage version so everyone can feel included.

Tropical Cocktail Trios

You can’t always bring your entire team to the beach, but you can bring the beach directly to them! It’s time to turn your average zoom happy hour into an island-time celebration with this unreal cocktail trio experience. During the one-hour virtual experience, your tastebuds will be transported to Hawaii, and everyone will get to explore notes of pineapple, coconut, citrus, and spice. What better way to celebrate the warmer months?
