The Luxury Network New Zealand Hosts Cocktail Masterclass with Black Pineapple10th October 2018
In collaboration with the fabulous Frankie Walker and team of Black Pineapple; The Luxury Network invited members to enjoy a bespoke Cocktail Masterclass at the exclusive surroundings of historic Northern Club. The evening proved a roaring success, with members walking away with three decadent cocktails added to their repertoire.
Welcomed with a glass of champagne and the chance to mingle, members were later enthralled by Walker’s precision and skill during his entertaining demonstration, creating three signature cocktails.
Lighting up the room and engaging with guests, the team at Black Pineapple showcased how to mix carefully curated cocktails for the crème de la crème of drinking experiences, dinner parties, or celebrations – just in time for the upcoming party season. Once equipped with insider tips and tricks, it was our members’ turn to try their hands at becoming the next Master of Cocktails.
Delighting the senses, members were provided with impressive fresh ingredients at three stations, mixing unique and deliciously developed cocktails. Drawing inspiration from all time classics, Frankie added a modern twist for a drink sure to impress at any party.
The Honey Berry Sour station was a favourite during the night, combining unusual flavour pairings (berry puree, lemon, and whiskey among the ingredients list), for a surprisingly refreshing drink – perfect for those balmy summer evenings. Members and guests then enjoyed warmly rich and decadent food from the Northern Club, while sipping on their own creations.
Frankie and Black Pineapple certainly educated and inspired us to become better hosts, giving our members exclusive insider tricks and techniques to become master mixologists at any event. It will be hard to envisage the next end of year celebration, dinner party or brand activation without them.
