Everybody enjoys drinking a cocktail or two – I’m yet to find somebody who doesn’t. But if you fancy doing something different, why not learn how to make them yourself? I have found two places in Puerto del Carmen that do just that:

Good Old Days

Making cocktails

The Good Old Days Bar & Kitchen also offer their Cocktail Making Experience any day between 1 and 6pm by reservation only. The session lasts approximately between one and one and a half hours and bookings are taken up to a maximum of 15 people. For parties larger than that, two separate bookings are recommended. The cost is €18 per person and the experience includes: a glass of Prosecco on arrival, then you learn how to make and taste three classic cocktails, after which you choose your favourite and have a chance to recreate it yourself. Once you’ve finished you’ll be able to enjoy your own creation along with a platter of finger food.

The Cocktail Making Experience can be booked via their Facebook page  or by calling or sending a WhatsApp to +34 628 018 296.

The Good Old Days Bar & Kitchen is on Avenida de las Playas, number 54 in Puerto del Carmen, not far from the Casino.

U and I

U and I offers their Cocktail Masterclass on demand for individual classes right up to 30 people as a maximum. The class costs €23 per person and it includes: bubbly on arrival followed by learning how to make four cocktails with an expert tutorial from their professional mixologist, Yaser. The choice of cocktails taught are tailored as much as possible to the clients’ choice. The session lasts around 3 hours. depending on how long it takes to drink the cocktails but there is no time limit to enjoy them! Also, they offer gift cards.

For more information or to book them all you need to do is to send them a message via their Facebook page . You can find there some photos of people who have already attended these masterclasses and their reviews. It looks like fun, not to mention yummy!

They can also arrange to come to you in your villa and do the masterclass.

U and I is located in Calle Reina Sofía, number 5 also in Puerto del Carmen, near La Hoya Centre in the Old Town.

So whether you are celebrating a birthday or a special occasion with friends or family, want to surprise your better half with a special date or you are having a girls night out, this is definitely a very different and entertaining way to do so.
