Holidays By Drew
Tired of the same old holiday dinner or cocktail party? Let Bartending By Drew help you create a unique interactive experience that your employees or clients will love. Our interactive events include cocktail competitions, cocktail making events and cocktail appetizer cooking/pairing events. Every event includes catering and bar options suited to every taste.
Get your team’s competitive juices going with Bartending By Drew’s Cocktail Competition. We divide your group into teams that each have their own bar station. Each team makes 4 cocktails from our seasonal menu designed to help them learn about ingredients and bartending techniques. Then we take a break for dinner. After dinner each team designs their own cocktail from scratch using a wide array of liquor, fruits, vegetables, bitters and mixers. Prizes are awarded for best cocktail name, most unique cocktail, best looking cocktail and best overall cocktail. Each guest receives a free digital download of Death and Co.’s Modern Classic Cocktails
