cocktail

Today was an exciting day for the ‘Kicking Goals in Hospitality\’ students as they got the chance to learn cocktail creation with Trainer Maria. The students, having previously had a go at making some standard cocktails got the opportunity to create their very own original recipes and we were amazed at their results!

Needless to say we are extremely proud of our students, who after only two short weeks of training have been able to produce great looking and great tasting cocktails. Cocktail making is only a small portion of their overall bar skills unit, however it is one that is always enjoyed by both staff and students and particularly when creativity gets involved, as it did in today’s session.

The result of the cocktail creation session was a wide variety of delightful drinks, each with a unique twist. The cocktails were all named by the student who created them and they are as follows (from left to right in the photo below)….
