A MASTERCLASS IN
COCKTAIL MAKING!
Writer Suzanne Baum didn't
need much encouragement to
attend a cocktail class and what
better time than Christmas
to be shaken and stirred...
'Reporting on a cocktailmaking class didn't feel like
work at all and I felt rather
excited! With the owner of
mobile bar company Vits+Kicks
as my teacher, I felt confident,
for Matthew Preedy has used
his extensive knowledge of
the drinks industry to create
an innovative cocktail venture
- fresh fruit and veg cocktails
with a kick... alcohol!
'During the hour-long lesson,
first-class bartender Matthew
teaches me techniques, from
juicing the fruit to 'muddling',
'straining' and 'building'.
'I learn how to create three
cocktails, my favourite being
the Vits O'Clock, which is
coconut vodka, pineapple, chilli
and passion fruit. It certainly
has a kick to it and tastes so
fresh I go for seconds. And
suddenly I'm feeling a little bit
tipsy, but that doesn't stop
me trying a Toffee Kick.
I don't recall the
exact recipe, but
the beauty of it
was I didn't have
a sore head the
next morning!'

Vits+Kick offers mobile
masterclasses for private
and corporate events.
