Butler Training ” Cocktails” Mixology – So much fun!

By Butler Academy

Today at the Butler Academy we created , designed and enjoyed several lovely cocktails. The art of making the perfect cocktail is very important technical skill for any Butler.


A cocktail is a mixed drink typically made with a distilled beverage (such as gin, vodka, whiskey, tequila, or rum) that is mixed with other ingredients. If beer is one of the ingredients, the drink is called a beer cocktail.

Cocktails contain one or more types of liqueur, juice, fruit, sauce, honey, milk or cream, spices, or other flavorings. Cocktails may vary in their ingredients from bartender to bartender, and from region to region. Two creations may have the same name but taste very different because of differences in how the drinks are prepared.

    Another great day, starts of with of course a test! Then we went to Hirsch’s store to meet with Mrs. Hirsch for a morning of bedroom boutique. They entertain us with coffee and lovely muffins. When we get back at the academy we had a big surprise! Flowers around our necks and tables lay out and decorated in true Hawain style. Then we made cocktails. It was so much fun. Thanks everyone of our Kings and Queen for tasting and judging our cocktails.
