The team at Be At One offer cocktail enthusiasts the trip of a lifetime this Summer. Launching the Great Be At One Shake off in July, guests will have the chance to try their hand at flaring and mixing, before being entered into a prize draw for a chance to win a wonderful trip to the cocktail-crazy island of Cuba.
For eight weeks from July 1st, the team of talented mixologists at the Oxford Street and Bristol branches will be spilling all of their secrets during a series of intriguing masterclasses designed for beginners. Each class will be based around a specific spirit; from Havana Rum to Chivas Regal Whisky, guests partaking in the class will familiarise themselves with a number of different spirits, before putting their new-found knowledge to the test and producing a few signature concoctions themselves.
But simply reproducing these drinks isn't enough for the team at Be At One; they really want to push their eager students. Having learnt all about the drinks, guests are then heavily encouraged to come up with their own cocktail recipes, drawing upon everything they've observed and been taught at the masterclasses. The best recipe will be selected and the applicant with the most imaginative creation will be sent across the Atlantic to the bustling streets of Cuba.
It could all be yours. The white beaches. The fresh limes. The clear, blue sea. All just one recipe away. You don't have to be an expert, all that's required is a willing attitude and a desire to turn your knowledge into something brilliant. With an arsenal of fruits, spices and spirits, Be At One hope to leave you with a few good alcohol-infused memories this summer, even if they are a bit hazy.
