Cocktail making @ Malmaison Hotel

i_2013042815131860My little sister is getting married next month and Saturday night was her hen do. It was secretly arranged without her knowing anything of where she was going or what she was doing.
All 17 of the hens plus bride to be met at the Malmaison hotel in Manchester. There were several different groups; none of whom I really knew so it was nice to meet some new people. This also happened to be my first proper night out since having Izebella.  Mal_Manchester_Exterior_01After a few introductions at the bar we went into the ember lounge for a cocktail making course. The room was lovely, beautifully decorate tables and balloons. Sis arrived last and looked lovely in her blue dress

After a while of chatting and complimenting how lovely Ell looked, We all gathered around the bar to watch the barman make the first cocktail.
i_2013042723030296He made a lovely drink for my sister and then it was our turn to make cocktails. We were put into groups of three or four and I was put forward to make the first cocktail in our group which was a Cosmopolitan and consisted of Cointreau, vodka, lime and cranberry juice with ice. This one unfortunately for me involved tipping and shaking which uneventfully ended with some spillage.  It was a lovely drink tho.
The second cocktail which was even nicer was a Bellini made with champagne and peach. I didn’t make this one tho this seemed a lot easier to make than my one. i_2013042723030281By this time my poor head already felt a little fuzzy after two lovely cocktails and a vodka but somehow I managed stay alert and remember what came next Rasperry Mojito made from Chambord liqueur, mint leaves, ice and maybe something else which I can’t quite remember. Again another delicious drink tho very sweet. And that was our amazing cocktail session for which I for one felt extremely giggly and woozy, I have no idea what  I was saying or who to, tho probably a load of incomprehensible rubbish.
Afterwards we went into a private dining area for a lovely two course meal. I had duck with orange and plum sauce followed by Panna cotta. Both of which were lovely tho I forgot the picture of the desert. i_2013042723030240After the meal some of the hens and the bride to be headed on to a club. As I live quite a distance away and was relying on trains; plus have a teething baby I decided to head home instead. I had a great night out and hope my lovely sister did too. I was glad to get in my warm cozy bed tho once I got in and rest my sore party feet.
