Hen do cocktail making is an excellent hen activity that allows your group to get creative and learn a new skill. There are specialist companies who will give your group a class in mixology, allowing them to create their favourite drinks and drink them with style!
Rather than a straight-up drinking session, you can use cocktail-making as the basis for a competition. Blindfold your hens, then lead them to a bar with a selection of mixers, glasses, spirits and garnishes, letting them work out the right recipe for their drink in two minutes. Once the time is up, the first hen-team to make the correct drink beats the others.
It’s a great way to get your hens working together, and the whole process can be a lot of fun when you add some strategy and competition into it. You can even choose bottles with slightly different shapes and sizes – think of a bottle of Jack Daniels compared to a slim Smirnoff, for example – to create some interesting challenges for your hens.
You can play this game in pairs or groups, so there’s plenty of opportunity to have a bit of a laugh with your friends. You can also make the challenge harder by having a specific drinking straw for each glass, so the hens who can drink from their glasses without getting stuck are more likely to win!
This game is perfect for a party or hen do, but it can also be used as a way to get to know your hens before the big day. There are lots of ways to make it a memorable experience for the bride-to-be, and you can even have a few lessons in mixology before hand so your group will be ready to impress her with their creations.
The pixel art aesthetic is great, and the game’s sense of humor is just as witty. It’s also a very good point-and-click adventure, so it’s a great choice for anyone who enjoys a bit of a laugh and some spooky escapades!

The most important thing when it comes to a good cocktail is the quality of the components. This includes the ingredients themselves, as well as their preparation and presentation. For example, if you’re going to serve a martini, make sure that the gin is of high quality and the garnish is fresh and not dried out.
In addition, be sure to use good quality syrups and juices as these can really make a difference in the flavour of the drink. Similarly, be careful to avoid using cheap or flavourless mixers as they can seriously detract from the final drink’s taste.
