Welcome to DMU Cocktail Society!
Whether you’re an experienced bartender, someone who doesn’t drink alcohol, or a complete beginner who’s never even stepped foot in a bar, let alone behind one – we can cater for you!
We recently won “Most Improved Student Group” at the DSU Awards 2017/18 and are one of the most popular societies on campus as we go into our 8th year as a society.
Why join us?
At Cocktail Society you have the chance to…
- Make lots of like-minded friends
- Learn a new skill to impress
- Improve your confidence
- Get bartending experience to help get a part-time job
- Compete in competitions
- Experience Leicester’s nightlife in a new way
- Explore the national and international cocktail scene on DMUglobal trips
All while having fun – like the sound of that?
We meet every Tuesday evening at Bruxelles at 7 pm on the High Street (don’t worry if you don’t know where that is, for the first few weeks the committee can meet you on campus and show you). Our weekly sessions are catered for members interests and a typical session includes some of the following:
- Spirit Tasting
- Games and quizzes
- Guest bartenders
- Flair workshops
- Cocktail Masterclasses
- Bar skills
We are partnered with many bars and clubs around the city and with your membership you’re entitled to our discount card which allows you money off specific food, drinks and club entry.
Speaking of bars and clubs, every other week at the end of the session, we have a variety of workkshops every Tuesday including costumed, relaxed, and joint with other societies in which everyone is welcome even as just a social member!
As our society has grown, we have invested in our own equipment to take to events which is an opportunity available to all members. Events help raise funds for our society as well as showcasing what we can do both on and off campus - past events have included:
- CODE’s Mental Health Awareness Day
- Charity Mocktail Sale for MIND
- Caribbean Party at CODE Student Accommodation
- University Open Days
- DrinkAware Campaign with the Student Union
This year we will be taking Cocktail Society international and doing on a DMUglobal trip abroad. We will also be aiming for one trip a semester nationally such as a Gin Festival, National Competition or just a fun day out!
Come learn a thing or two about the wonderful world of mixology – we can’t wait to meet you!
