Cocktail Masterclass at Li'l Darlin Surry Hills

Shake up some cocktails & learn some new tips and tricks from our Cocktail Masters

Learn to whip up a world-class cocktail with ease, with the expert team at Li'l Darlin (Surry Hills).

You’ll be greeted with a drink on arrival (beer, wine, or bubbles - let us know ahead, or decide on the day).

Begin an introduction and demonstration from our cocktail connoisseurs and taste approximately four different cocktails. You’ll then head behind the bar to experience the thrill of making your own cocktail, with guidance and feedback along the way, then, of course, you’ll taste your creation.

An example of some of the cocktails you may have during your group's masterclass are:

  • Old Fashioned (Bourbon, old fashioned bitters, brown sugar with orange zest)
  • Negroni (Gin, sweet vermouth and campari)
  • Espresso Martini (Vodka, Tia Maria, Espresso and a Salted Caramel sugar syrup)
  • White Chocolate Passionfruit Martini (Cake infused vodka, white chocolate, ruby red grapefruit and passionfruit)
  • Fairy Floss Martini (Swedish vodka, raspberry sorbet, cane sugar, fairy floss rose)
  • Hundreds & Thousands (Vanilla vodka, apple & strawberry puree, fresh lemon juice, sprinkles)

We had a blast at a team building event at Li'l Darlin. The whole session was relaxing and allowed us to set the pace. Our teacher was knowledgeable, friendly and the venue provided a great atmosphere to get away from the CBD. Would most definitely rebook for client team building events.

Great class, great venue. Everyone enjoyed it! They even cater to non drinkers. Highly recommend!
Can you cater to gluten free and vegetarians? If we have non-drinkers along do you have other beverages/ mocktail options?

Yes, we'd be happy to cater for all of that (including mocktail options).

I'd like to book with just one or two guests, can I join a "public" class?

Try this class instead

How does the ‘tasting’ of the cocktails work?

Our bartender makes the cocktails during his presentation and hands them around - everyone tries them with a straw.
