Ask all leading catering companies in London; whether you’re planning an awards gala, a large scale marketing event, or an intimate cocktail party, there’s one place where people love to congregate…the bar.
To make your next event stand out, here are some mixology tips from the creative team at AlchemyLive.
These cocktail recipes include our very own creations – the Christmas Candy Floss Bellini and The Paradise Lost, plus an exciting blend of well-loved favourites and new, edgy taste experiments that have inspired us.
Christmas Candy Floss Bellini
This one is well on its way to becoming a holiday tradition, but you can enjoy a Christmas Candy Floss Bellini any time of the year. This delectable blend of sparkling wine, peach puree and glittery marshmallows wrapped in candy floss, adds playfulness and celebration to any event.
The Paradise Lost
A regal blue and delicious fusion of British sparkling wine, blue curaçao and blueberries wrapped in (edible) glitter-covered candy floss. The Paradise Lost will help your guests find their own taste Nirvana.
The Winter Cocktail
Built around the concept of winter, this drink includes champagne delicately blended with Angostura bitters and St. Germain liqueur, finished with a sugar cube and lemon peel. When served with a side of gold-dusted marshmallows, the winter blues are definitely chased away.

According to catering companies in London, sherry is trending, fast! A new favourite to hit the events scene is the Sherry Cobbler, which combines sherry with rosemary syrup, cranberries, and orange slices, followed by a garnish of fresh rosemary sprigs.
Another winter cocktail making the rounds is the Pear Blanche, a sweet and refreshing blend of gin and pear syrup with elderflower liqueur, egg whites, freshly peeled citrus and mint, followed by a sprinkling of black peppercorn as a garnish.
This visually stunning drink quickly made clubgoers forget their favourite Cosmopolitan. The Yin Yang martini mixes white chocolate liqueur and vanilla-flavoured vodka with ice cream, white chocolate mocha syrup, and crushed ice. Garnish with white and dark chocolate chips and dark chocolate shavings, and you can count on skipping dessert.
