Cocktail Masterclasses in Birmingham

One should never mix one's drinks.

Join us to discover the very finest creative concoctions with tastings, demonstrations, and the chance to recreate your favourites.

Starting the session with a welcome cocktail on arrival, followed by a spirit tasting and detailed exploration of the best base components for a cocktail. Then, learn how to make and shake three signature cocktails (with tastings, of course) before trying your hand at mixing up your own. Each month is different, focused around a specific theme and ingredient, so you can visit more than once. In fact, you can visit every month should you so wish, we’re not stopping you.

So kick-start your weekend with Friday and Saturday classes at the Bar and join us after the class for a three-course meal in the Brasserie.

March: SWEET, SWEET SPRING
Citrus season is coming to an end this month – it’s time for sweet, sweet spring to take over. Our masterclasses this month will focus on sweeter cocktails – including the popular Pornstar Martini, Strawberry Daiquiri and Singapore Sling.

April: LATIN LOVE
Many of the UK’s favourite cocktails are from the other side of the Atlantic, so we though we’d celebrate them this month. Expect plenty of concoctions, from fruity Daiquiris and refreshing Mojitos to sharp Pisco Sours.

May: LONG DRINKS
We’re starting to see a change in seasons: days are getting longer, and so are our drinks. Our masterclasses this month will be focused on some classic highballs, from fiery Moscow Mules, sweet Tom Collins or a punchy Long Islands.

June: PRIDE MONTH
People are celebrating Pride month all over the world, and at Harvey Nicks we’re on the same page. As a homage to the LGBTQ community, we will be showcasing some of our favourite colourful cocktails and taking a look at drinks layering in more detail. Think Tequila Sunrise, Pink Lady and Cosmopolitan.
