You Can Now Join A Virtual Cocktail Making Class This Galentine's Day

You Can Now Join A Virtual Cocktail Making Class This Galentine's Day

It's almost that time of the year when we celebrate the best unofficial holiday - Galentine's Day. The 13th day in February is the day when we celebrate our gal pals and friendship.

Like pretty much everything else, Galentine's Day has had to go virtual this year due to lockdown rules, but one fantastic way you and your besties can celebrate safely is by joining a virtual cocktail making class - and there are a lot to choose from.

The Ginspiration Online Cocktail Masterclass for six with Beyond the Bar lets you learn mix up some tasty cocktails from the comfort of your own home.

You bring the booze and your expert bartender will bring the knowledge, showing you how to create three lip-smacking tipples of your own choice. It costs £90 for six people and you and your friends will be sent a Zoom link to attend. You can even add up to 20 other groups to take part too.

If you're isolating at home with your Galentine, you could opt for the couples double date night Ginspiration Online Cocktail Masterclass.

Staying in truly is the new going out and with this one-and-a-half-hour masterclass, you'll be mixing up three gin-based beverages using your own ingredients, as well as drinking games and a fascinating history lesson in gin.

An e-voucher with the Zoom code will be sent to you and you pal but you can link up with up to 20 other groups of two for added fun.

But wait, there's more! The Cocktail Service are also offering virtual cocktail masterclasses on Galentine's Day. The price is £50 including the delivery of the ingredients for each attendee to their door; this includes everything to make three cocktails each (you have to supply your own ice).

If you don't drink alcohol or would simply prefer a less boozy Galentine's, you can specify to replace the alcoholic sprit with a non-alcoholic alternative when you book.

This masterclass requires a minimum of 10 friends and once booked, each person will receive their own Zoom link to enter the virtual masterclass. Bookings are on a first-come, first-served basis so you'll have to be quick.

Each of the interactive virtual cocktail classes last roughly 30 minutes - two hours depending on the option you have chosen. There are options to specify whether you want to make two, three, or even four cocktails.

Jess Martin, expert party planner at Ginger Ray suggested virtual cocktail masterclasses as one of six ways to have a fabulous Galentine's Day this year.

In addition to cocktails, she also recommends having a boozy bottomless brunch by sending yourself and your friends a brunch box from your favourite restaurant. Virtual movie marathons are also a great choice, simply pick the flick, press play at the same time and have your friends on FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Skype or Netflix Party which synchronises your chosen film to have a long-distance movie night.

"It's all about spending time with your closest friends, appreciating them and doing the things you all enjoy the most! During the pandemic, we've all realised how important our friends are, and that we'll never take special time with them for granted again," explains Jess.

Another top tip is a virtual cook-a-long. You can design a 3-course meal of all your favourite flavours and send a shopping list out to your friends: once all the ingredients are bought, set up a hangout call and cook along together.

Jess says: "Not only will you be able to sit down to a yummy meal and enjoy the same dishes, but it's also an interactive way to spend quality time with those you miss the most."

And In case you didn't know, the first Galentine's Day was celebrated by the Galentine's foremothers, Leslie and Donna on Parks & Recreation, back in 2010 and seven years later it became a worldwide phenomenon.

We hope you have a happy Galentine's Day!
