I was recently contacted by Social and Cocktail, a Scottish company who offer tailored cocktail packages in the comfort of your own home. How could I resist the offer of reviewing such an exciting idea? I got some friends together the other weekend and had a fantastic evening!
The great thing about having Social and Cocktail involved in your night is that they provide EVERYTHING for a great cocktail evening… all the ingredients, the glassware, a bartender and a mobile bar, I mean how cool is that??
Cameron was our bartender for the evening, and this was his first event for the company. I was amazed that the mobile bar came in such a box but it opened up into an all singing, all dancing bar complete with everything he needed for the evening ahead. Cameron did a grand job of making all our cocktails and explaining a bit about the history of each of them. Each of the five cocktails were fabulous, those being: Cosmopolitan, Woo Woo, Mojito, Appletini and a Strawberry Daiquiri, and I would be hard pushed to choose just one, but the Appletini was rather special! Even the non-drinkers amongst us weren’t left out as Cameron made some “mocktails” which had just as much care put into them.
I have to say that the best part of the evening came when Cameron invited a couple of my friends up for a cocktail masterclass. Click HERE for a video of that!!
Everyone who attended the night commented on how much they had enjoyed themselves and we were all in agreement that it made a perfect night in our own village rather a 50 mile round trip into Aberdeen, involving expensive taxis. We are planning our next Social and Cocktail event already as we had so much fun!
Thank you to everyone who came along, to Cameron for putting up with us all and to Damien for contacting me in the first place!

I was asked to review Social and Cocktail in exchange for a free of charge event. All opinions expressed in this post are my own (while sober!)
