A Cocktail Masterclass with Mr Postles Apothecary

If you've been following the blog for a while you'll know that I do I like a good cocktail and it's fair to say my expertise is more in the drinking them than the making them....So when Norwich bar Mr Postles Apothecary got in touch to ask if I'd like to join them for a cocktail making masterclass it seemed the perfect way to combine important cocktail education with my tried and tested tasting skills....

I hadn't been in the bar/restaurant previously but it is somewhere I walk past on an almost daily basis. Recently under new management and having undergone a total revamp it hadn't gone unnoticed on my regular walks in to that part of the city but I hadn't yet ventured in. Had I realised they did some crackling good cocktails on a 2 for 1 offer on Monday-Friday I probably would have checked it out sooner! 

The decor is perfectly suited to the bars name with lots and lots of old medicine type bottles decorating the place. 

Firstly have to say a big thank you to mixologist Adam who was not only informative but also coped with me being behind the bar which only encouraged my child like tendency to repeatedly ask 'ooo what's this?!' 

I'm also incredibly clumsy so it's a brave person that puts a cocktail shaker in my hands who doesn't want their bar redecorating but I can report nothing major happened although it's tough turning a bottle of booze upside down to add shots to glasses without spraying it everywhere. Who knew?!

We tried several cocktails, choosing which ones took our fancy from the huge menu. Taking it in turns to make them under Adams guidance I think we did pretty well and took tasting the menu incredibly thirstily seriously, like the dutiful cocktail researchers that we are....

Adam also showed us some exclusive sneak peeks of cocktails coming soon....

Mr Postles are offering these masterclasses as group activities and if the fun we had is anything to go by these will be a fab way to go out and enjoy a cocktail or two with a more hands on twist! Visit the Mr Postles Apothecary website for more info. 

Would I go back? Ummm... I was in fact in there again today having a meeting. Over a drink. Or two, obviously.....
