Mint Leaf, London
Forget Tom Cruise and his Cocktails, meet the Teens and their Mocktails!
This week we have been shaking, stirring and muddling our way through a mixology class at MintLeaf, Haymarket. From the exotic ‘Illusion' mocktail with fresh raspberries muddled with lychee puree to the classic ‘Mojito' with an apple twist, the Teens were treated to a masterclass with Eric the fantastic mixologist.
There was a real ‘mix' of Teens attending from those who have been coming along to our events for years and brand new sign ups who were here for their first event. Two hours of drinking beautifully crafted drinks (and getting some of our five a day!), learning how to make the drinks, meeting new people and tucking into delicious canopes is just how we roll on a Thursday afternoon!
A huge thank you to the all the staff at Mint Leaf for hosting this event for us. It was a delight to be in your beautiful restaurant with your incredibly helpful and supportive staff.
Mixology is a real craft and after this event, the Teens will be able to wow their friends and families with their knowledge and skills.
