Make Your Own Cocktails in Melbourne

Make Your Own Cocktails in Melbourne


If you’ve ever had the luck of enjoying a truly well-made cocktail, you’ve probably also had the thought, I wish I could do that myself! Imagine being able to whip up the perfect cocktail for dinner parties, for intimate get togethers, or to impress your colleagues at an after works drink event. Making a great cocktail is more than simply swishing around a hodge-podge of ingredients or throwing a couple of ice cubes in a fancy glass. If you’ve tried, and failed, to make a tasty cocktail, don’t worry - you’re not alone. There’s an art behind cocktail making, and the best way to learn is with an experienced instructor and one of our fun cocktail making classes in Melbourne. 


If you don’t believe us, just consider some of the things that a certified mixologist must learn before being able to call themselves a true expert:

  • Mastery of the balance of weak, strong, sour and sweet elements in the cocktail
  • When to stir, shake, muddle, strain, or double-strain
  • How to work with egg whites and other delicate ingredients
  • The proper use of organic, fresh ingredients
  • When to use crushed, cubed, or carefully shaped ice
  • A working knowledge of hundreds of different alcohol types and brands
  • An understanding of the history of specific cocktails

If any of this sounds interesting to you, you’ll really enjoy taking a cocktail making course. At ClassBento, we’re always excited to talk about some of the mixology-based classes we have to offer in the Melbourne region. Check out some of these options!
