It's beginning to look a lot like cocktails!

If you've got a bunch of girls coming on the hen weekend who don't necessarily know each other well, you need an activity that'll break the ice and get all the girls in the hen party spirit. A Marbella Cocktail Making class at a swank Puerto Banus cocktail bar is just the thing! At least when you return to the UK you can say that you learned something on your girly getaway and you won't be lying!

Get all the girls together for a session that'll see them mixing, muddling and shaking up classic cocktails like a pro in no time. This is one of our most popular activities in this glamorous destination, and once you take part you'll soon see why. This isn't a pretentious mixology lesson. It's what happens when a cocktail trained barman shares the secret of the shake with a gaggle of hens who're primed for partying!

Why limit happy to an hour?

Meet up with your mixologist at a swank, city centre venue. Marbella's night life doesn't get going until around midnight, so doing a cocktail class in the afternoon or early evening is perfect. When you arrive your barman will give you hints on tips on how to use bar tools, get measurements right and which glasses are used for what. Once you've got the basics down, he'll start demoing some of your favourite long drinks. Sure, you can catch up with the ladies while he's free pouring those cosmos, but when it comes time for you to do it you'll be lost!

Once he's done showing you how it's done it's time to make like the girls of Coyote Ugly and jump behind the bar. You'll go in twos and try your best at mixing up the cocktails you've been shown. There will be forfeit shots for the gals who get their measurements mixed up! You'll play a few fun cocktail based bar games like blindfold mixing and at the end you'll have a tasting session of what you've created. Sip on your own or give your bestie's concoction a go. By the end of it you'll be sufficiently squiffy, ready to toast the bride at the lavish Puerto Banus port or dance the night away on the second and third line. Brilliant!
