I was lucky enough to be invited to a cocktail masterclass hosted at Central and Co recently! I love cocktails so it would have been rude have me NOT to have accepted. My friend and I went along and were introduced to a world of much merriment! I had never heard of Monkey Shoulder before so was intrigued to learn that it’s a whiskey. You learn something new every day. I like whiskey although I usually just drink it with coke so learning some new cocktail recipes was great (side note: most recipes have now been forgotten, that’s nothing to do with the amount I had to drink…I promise).
Our host, a brand ambassador from Monkey Shoulder, Scotch Whiskey, was super friendly and taught us how to make 3 cocktails, which we were “forced” to drink! 😉 I now know how a proper “Old Fashioned” is supposed to taste…basically very strong! We had a cocktail challenge too which was great except my friend and I did not win despite clearly being the best – see evidence below:
I’ll definitely try Monkey Shoulder again one day and will do my best to mix a winning cocktail along the way (that was not supposed to rhyme)
Central and Co is a great venue to meet up for drinks too, facing Carnaby Street it’s perfect for an evening catch up with friends to get the night started!
