Cocktail Masterclass at Luxe Bar

Last month, a crew of bloggers and I were invited to Luxe Bar to try our hand at bartending 101. After a warm welcome from Luxe barmen, Andy and Sacha, we were put to work! We took our spots behind the bar and tested our skills at cocktail making. It was an hilarious night of great company, laughter, spillages and of course, delicious Luxe signature cocktails.

Luxe Bar is definitely worth a visit. Go for a boogie and their must-try famous espresso martini (scroll down for the recipe).
