Revolution Cocktail Masterclass

Monday, 25 November 2013

As I've said a few times before, one of the best things about blogging has been meeting lots of great people, and on Friday night I was out with some of my best blogging pals for Laura's 22nd birthday.

We started off at Revolution on Chambers Street for a cocktail masterclass.  I've always wanted to go to one of these, you know how much I love cocktails, and it ended up being a lot of fun - I'd definitely recommend it for a special occasion like a birthday or hen party.  We all got a chance to go behind the bar and follow a cocktail recipes - on my turn I made a Strawberry WooWoo - and along the way there were various nice and nasty shots given out for answering questions correctly or for messing up.  5 recipes later we were split into 2 teams for a final challenge which was basically a timed relay race where we had to make a cocktail and then down it - my team won by about a minute (we were pretty determined, lol).  Once the class was over we got to select a final cocktail from their disco menu and then took this upstairs where we had tables reserved for some much needed dinner (yeah cocktails and shots on an empty stomach isn't a good idea).

After dinner we went to another couple of bars for some drinks before going to our final destination…The Hive!  Despite living round the corner on the Cowgate for 3 years at uni I'd never actually been to The Hive before so was quite excited as the girls go on about it all the time so it was nice to finally experience it myself.  I had seriously lowered my expectations too as they'd described it as a place where "sweat drips from the ceiling" but it was actually a lot less grubby than I thought it would be, haha.  Plus the drinks were dirt cheap and the tunes were top notch - think Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, Avril Lavigne, Fountains of Wayne etc - amazing.

Needless to say I had a bit of a sore head come Saturday morning but it was definitely worth it.  I can't remember the last time I spent all night dancing and singing along at the top of my voice, and being surrounded by some of the best girls I know it was pretty awesome.

Speaking of blogger pals, 7 of us are off on a wee holiday to Aberfeldy this weekend to stay in a cottage (sorry I think I've probably been mentioning this on here for months but I'm just so excited!) - it's going to be 2 nights of good chat, good food, board games, PJs and pampering.  I think we're also going to put our new cocktail making skills to good use so I'm looking forward to a woo woo or two.  Will definitely take plenty photos all weekend and might even try fit in a cheeky vlog, so keep an eye out for an update next week!
