Built In Success

The office Christmas party is a great time to celebrate that another year of success and growth and possibly challenges faced as a team has been shared. Cocktails are the mark of a special occasion that reinforces the message of more than just a ‘’good job’’ and is a memorable way to drink to all of those shared moment with the ‘second family’. Depending on the size of your company or department you can even add a branded bar and welcoming hostesses to mark the occasion and give your team the ‘special VIP treatment’.

Hands On Fun

Now this isn’t a reference to grabbing your colleague after the fifth champagne cocktail.  
Though quick fact for you, research shows that more than a million people have turned up to work the next day wearing the same clothes as the day before – doing the work ‘walk of shame’ after the staff Christmas party, so bring a bag of fresh clothes to the office and no one will be any the wiser!

Now, imagine the scenario, it’s 10am Christmas day, the Christmas PJ’s are still on, the Turkey is roasting perfectly, and you turn to your loved ones with “Who fancies a lychee Martini, a classic Caipirinha or a Evergreen Swizzle?”  as you pull some mint leaves from your sleeve and crack some ice with your elbow.
These winter warmer cocktails go down nicely in all ways. An Exquisite Cocktails masterclass provides  the opportunity for everybody to get their hands on mixing, shaking, throwing and hopefully catching cocktails shakers and spirit bottles.

Nothing To Prepare

Maybe you’ve been tasked with the job of ringing round bars, caterers, taking office Google polls on who likes traditional, buffet or Pizza, pinning taxi routes, hassling the boss for his credit card and quite frankly spending more time doing a good impression of Anne Diamond on ‘points of view’ as you skill-fully handle the good, the bad and ugly of ideas of office parties.

Even though we are big Guinness drinkers, we realise it isn’t everyone’s favourite pub pint, it seems as though there is one day of the year upon which most people are happy to forget that they don’t actually enjoy the taste of Ireland’s national drink, and get stuck in to a few pints of the black stuff. Today is that day, St. Patrick’s Day.  Obviously our mission as a cocktail company is to ensure that everybody has something in their glass that they enjoy drinking, so it seemed only right that we try to do something with Guinness to turn the haters into lovers.

Short of suggesting that people charge their glasses with Gin and top it up to create a delicious but dangerous nectar that we call Gin-ness, we thought we ought to suggest something both a little more sensible and suitable for the light hearted drinkers out there. We’ve come up with a delicious spiced punch that is easily created at home, and that is sure to be sure to change people’s opinions of Guinness.

Combining Spiced Rum, Guinness, a careful selection of different spices and ginger beer to taste you can make a delicious concoction to get your St Patrick’s Day going…

Chambers are one of the biggest corporate travel companies and we wanted to make their marketing reposition launch special, so we composed a menu of cocktails from around the world, pretty cliché? Maybe, but we turned some modern classics on their head. ‘Bramble jelly’ canapés took stage as our British contribution on the menu, along with a ‘Virgin Redhead’ and personalised ice cubes topped the ‘C.T Mojito’.

The event, held at the Ice Tank in Covent Garden, was split into two parts, designed to reflect the old and new branding of Chambers Travel. The guests arrived greeted with champagne, and no less than Veuve Cliquot: they were to drink this for an hour or so while the DJ played calm background music. This part of the evening was the old Chambers Travel, the brand that they had outgrown. Once the music stopped the speeches begun, explaining the rebrand and the new businesses that were incorporated as a part of it. The explanation was given and an electric violinist made her way through the crowd playing some rather more lively music than had been played initially: this was the cue for our flairers to start performing, and time to open the cocktail bar. The whole atmosphere had noticeably changed in an instant to one far more upbeat and excited much like the CEO’s aspirations for the company’s new identity.

Ably assisted by four lovely Virgin Cabin Crew we had been gifted as waitresses our bartenders served the guests drinks for the next two hours. They served everything from ‘CT Mojitos’ through to ‘Bubble Cosmopolitans’ with cranberry bubbles on the top, wowing the guests as they keenly propped up the bar.

The event ended at 9.30, at which point we were informed we had only an hour to clear up before the venue was to be cleaned for the next function. So we speedily packed up and made our way home satisfied that we had pleased all the guests we saw that evening.

Check out the video of some of our bartenders in action..
