My boyfriend brought me a cocktail making lesson at maiyango for Valentines day. It was a complete surprise as he had booked it over the phone and paid the week before. We arranged it for a Sunday afternoon when we thought it would be quiet. Well when we arrived at Maiyango, there was just us and Paul out bartender for the afternoon!! He made the experience very personal and we had his full attention for 2 hours. We got to make 6 different cocktails, all our choosing with some direction and Paul's expert advise. We loved being able to go behind the bar and muddle, mix,shake and sieve our cocktails. The flavours and ingredients were really inventive and tasted great and looked professional. We got to make a pineapple mohjito and raspberry daiquiri off the menu and then some more inventive cocktails. We chose to make a violet margarita and an espresso martini. We then got to create our own cocktails and had the chance to experiment with our own flavour combinations and they turned out very well. I loved getting to drink really nice cocktails there what not diluted with lemonade! Paul is very passionate and expert in what he does and he made our afternoon so enjoyable. He answered lots of our questions and even sent us the recipes by email afterwards. I would recommend this cocktail class to anybody who is curious and wants to experience shaking cocktails like a pro. It was great value for money (£25) each I think and we would pay that for 3 cocktails normally anyway. Perfect as a gift and works with groups from 2 and up depending on the occasion. Maiyango is a real gem in leicester.
