Cocktail Classes

At the Blind Pig we love to teach ! We run cocktail classes on request for groups of ten or more, and so whether its a corporate or  a private event, we would love to invite you in and show you how to make the cocktails that have made us famous.

What is a Blind Pig Cocktail Class all about ?

In our regular Cocktail Class, you will receive an introduction to The Blind Pig , alcohol , cocktails in general and we will even throw a bit of history in. Then , after the introduction , you will each have an opportunity to learn how to make , and then drink , two different cocktails. This class costs €30 per person. You can choose to have platters before your class or a sit down meal following it upon request.

Team Building Masterclass

In our Team Building Cocktail Masterclass, everyone in your group will receive a welcome cocktail upon arrival and we will then teach you how to make cocktails. The bartender will show you various techniques and give you advice on flavour combinations, which drink and liqueurs go well together with what syrups and bitters and how they all suit different cocktails, and then, using this knowledge that he has just given you, he will then show you how to make five or six different cocktails using these techniques. After that, it’s your turn.

Afterwards, each team will have to present their drink to the room and our bartender will judge them based on the balance of the flavours, the techniques used, the fluidity of working together as a team and the name of the cocktail. The winning team will receive a certificate and, more importantly, bragging rights. This masterclass costs €35 per person. There is extensive knowledge in this class where we do our best to teach you how to think like a barman and, best of all, how to create new cocktails from scratch.

Monthly Cocktail Classes

For €35 a person, you will get a welcome drink upon arrival and the chance to learn how to make two cocktails. We run them on Saturdays from 3-5 pm and they are aimed at groups of ten or less who would like to learn how to make cocktails like a pro but don’t quite have the numbers to book their own private masterclass.
