The Professional Touch
IMPRESS YOUR GUESTS WITH STUNNING COCKTAILS CREATED BY AN EXPERIENCED MIXOLOGIST
If you’ve ever attempted to mix a cocktail, you will appreciate that it is not as simple as it may appear. Okay, if you pull all the ingredients together for a Daiquiri or a Singapore Sling, you may be able to conjure up an alcoholic drink that tastes similar and may even look pretty – but to create the PERFECT COCKTAIL with precisely the correct balance, that tastes exactly right, is an entirely different kettle of fish!
Please allow ProCocktails to introduce you to the exciting world of freshly prepared cocktails, that are mixed to perfection, and you will appreciate how we can turn an ordinary party or gathering of friends into an amazing and memorable occasion. We promise you won’t regret it!
The extra dimension that a cocktail bar with smartly uniformed mixologists will bring to the party is fundamentally why so many of our corporate and private clients return, to hire us again and again.
Here’s why! There is something timelessly elegant and sophisticated about sipping a cocktail, not least because it can conjure up fond memories of past sun-drenched holidays in exotic places. Now, our professional cocktail bartenders – or to be precise – Mixologists – will delight your guests by creating the enchanting tastes and magical moments befitting of a tropical paradise, turning a casual social get-together into something exceptional. Outstanding cocktails made only from the finest, freshest ingredients will, if you excuse the pun – break the ice – and your guests will extol your virtues by talking about your occasion for weeks to come.

The term, Mixologist, is frequently bandied about these days, but what is a mixologist? How is a mixologist any different, for example, to a bartender? Perhaps this can best be illustrated by describing how a cook differs from a chef. Both prepare and cook food, but diners expect a chef to be trained to a significantly higher standard and expect him or her to create sensational culinary delights. Just as a top-flight chef has an intimate knowledge of how to combine the best ingredients to construct a mouth-watering dish – similarly, a mixologist will take a selection of the finest spirits, mixers and fresh ingredients to create a memorable cocktail masterpiece.
Comparing chefs to mixologists is hugely valid. While any competent bartender should be able to mix a standard range of cocktails, generally he or she will not be regarded as a specialist. A general bartender, unless specially trained, is less likely to have the comprehensive knowledge to mix a vast range of lesser-known cocktails. The differences may be minute, but as any cocktail aficionado, will explain – it is the little differences that separate an efficient bartender from an outstanding mixologist!
To be exceptional as a mixologist – it is necessary for an individual to finely hone his or her mixing skills by gaining a precise, in-depth knowledge, developed over many years, that can define the unique tastes of a cocktail in much the same way, a sommelier can identify the grape varieties of a bottle of fine wine.
Being an exemplary mixologist requires a thorough command of alcoholic and non-alcoholic spirits, juices and condiments, by knowing how they combine to mix a perfect cocktail. Being proficient also demands an excellent level of artistry and showmanship.

We enjoyed a fantastic 21st celebration evening with Janison serving delicious cocktails which were far more popular than wine or beer! Would definitely recommend and can't wait to have another party!
