Bombay Sapphire has paired up with artist and illustrator Joey Yu and mixologist Franck Dedieu for the first in a series of ‘Stir Creativity at Home’ masterclasses. The brand is inviting gin enthusiasts and art lovers alike to join the masterclasses and develop their cocktail-making and illustration skills from home.
Hosted over Zoom by two award-winning pioneers in art and mixology, attendees at the masterclass will be invited to make exquisite cocktails and create ‘windowscape’ illustrations, by taking inspiration from their view from home or reimagining a view that’s special to them.
There is no need for specialist equipment in the classes. Yu commented that “You don’t need lots of expensive tools and supplies to get started, just pick up a pen and come and join in. The concept of ‘windowscapes’ allows us to re-imagine the world and depict what it is we want to see when we look out at the world”.
For Dedieu’s part, attendees will be taught how to create two iconic cocktails from the Bombay Sapphire repertoire: a G&T Twist, and a classic Bramble cocktail. He noted that “Mastering cocktail serves is a brilliant way to get creative at home – your kitchen store cupboard provides a myriad of unique garnishes and ingredients that you might not have realised could be cocktail components before”.
Attendees will be invited to follow along with the experts, and will also have a chance to ask questions along the way via the Zoom chat function for a fully immersive experience.
30 complimentary tickets are now available on Eventbrite for the exclusive masterclass, which will take place on Friday 22nd May at 6:30pm.
