cocktail party planning & service
PLANNING - Our approach is personal, and one-on-one. Starting with a consultation, together we’ll create a menu and look that is spectacular. We’ll keep in close contact with you, your planner and/or other vendors, every step of the way. Before you sign off on your custom menu we’ll arrange a tasting for you and a guest to make sure we’ve hit it out of the park.
SERVICE - Our service model is equally versatile. We can bottle welcome drinks, provide passed bubbles service or serve cocktail punch from decanters. Thinking something a little different? Contact us! We are able to accommodate most requests.
COCKTAILS & MOCKTAILS - We can do classics, Mersey Originals or your own personalized signature cocktails. We recommend 3 per event and focus on adding unique twists to simple, classic cocktails, but you are in the driver’s seat. Let's connect and chat about your event.
BEER & WINE SELECTIONS - We work with some amazing local craft brewers for some truly unique and creative beer options. Of course, if Uncle Ron is gonna throw a fit because there’s no Coors Light, we can make that happen too! We'll work with you and your caterers to select wine and bubbles that compliment the food being served.
PAIRINGS AND THEMES - Wine and oysters, Rum and cigars, Scotch and dark chocolate... sky's the limit. We can also design themed bars (think build-your-own daiquiris or margaritas - yum!) to add some flair to your event.
** All garnishes, glassware and special touches will be chosen with the greatest of care, to create a dazzling representation of your event.
