Why We Constantly Change Our Menu
Here at Mr Flavour Cocktails, we are constantly looking into cocktail menu ideas to update, redefine and restyle our drinks. We believe not only us, but cocktail bars, restaurants and other bar suppliers should do too. The reason we feel so passionately about this is, just like chefs, it is our duty to push what we can do in mixology. The constant struggle between flavour profiles and texture keeps us on our toes when creating new combinations and every so often, an absolute gem comes out. We believe our evolving menus helps show off our creativity and passion to our industry, as well as helps us stay at the forefront for our originality and quality of drinks.
2018 was a very busy year for us here at Mr Flavour HQ with events ranging from the Abu Dhabi F1 to creating wedding cocktails nationwide. January provided us with a little breather and to reinvigorate our concepts and thinking outside the box for our 2019 events. With this in mind our mixology menus for liquid catering have taken a revamp to showcase new trends, methods, visuals and theatrics!
When creating and consulting on our new packages we asked ourselves a few questions; what do our customers want from their cocktail bar hire? what do our clients want? what do our wedding couples want? What new concepts can we add? How can we WOW guests this year?
The answers and consultations went long into the night and we decided our menus needed to be larger to cater for a range of different types of services, with that in mind our new cocktail bar hire packages now have 2 options:- Classics Package & Drink Differently Package
Cocktail Menu Ideas: Classics Packages
Just because we are looking at cocktail menu ideas, sometimes a traditional martini is required served in a classic manner! Those old school techniques that have been going on for decades that coincide with Bonds orders throughout his career, the cosmopolitan made famous by Sex And The City, the manhattan in Marilyn’s ‘Some Like It Hot’ movie and many more. Certain drinks have affinities to them and people relate to good memories. So if this is the case, a mojito at your wedding you shall have! Or gin bramble, bloody mary’s, pornstar martinis, daiquiri, the list goes on….
Menu Ideas For The Classics:-
Blackberry Gin Bramble
Dark & Stormy
Signature Gin & Tonic
Drink Differently Packages
Our drink differently packages have been created for those clients looking for that engagement and wow factor in their drinks. Its where our cocktail menu ideas really come to fruition and the lads go with some crazy combinations! The drink differently packages offer upgraded glassware (and in some cases alternatives to glasswear!), full theatrics on service including the use of ingredients such as liquid nitrogen, dry ice, fire, molecular mixology, wood smoke infusions, cold smoke infusions and much more! Our team has created 3 different menus for our customers to cherry pick which of our creations they would like served at their event. The drink differently creations are broken down into:-
Our contemporary menu was designed based on current trends, flavours and popular liqueurs in the hospitality trade. 2018 was the year for rose gold and copper glassware and barware. This year we are looking at using more galvanised metal to serve drinks in, evolving herbs into spirits, smoke infusions into whiskeys and much more. Here are some examples from the contemporary menu:-
Cocktail Menu Idea: Smokey Beer Fashioned
A combination of bourbon whiskey, homemade dark beer syrup and angostura bitters chilled and stirred over ice. This twist on a traditional old fashioned includes a cedar wood smoke infusion and is finished with a flamed orange zest & dehydrated orange wheel. The cocktail is served in a prohibition glass whiskey flask and is the perfect gentlemen’s cocktail – a combination of beer and whiskey.
Cocktail Menu: Favella Amor
Coconut rum, strawberry puree, homemade chilli syrup, fresh lemon juice, shaken and strained over ice then layered with prosecco and garnished with dehydrated strawberry slices. Served in a galvanised metal bucket reminiscent of the streets of Rio.
The thinking behind our quirky menu selection is be different. Each drink on the quirky section has a talking point! The whole point about the quirky’s are they are beautiful tasting cocktails but thats not the part thats going to get your attention! The Quirky’s provide additional bar tools including black lights, edible bubble baths, popcorn boxes, noodle boxes and much more! Doesn’t make sense? Check out some quirky examples:-
Cocktail Menu: Rub-A-Duck
The cocktail equivalent to a bubble bath: Vodka, kiwi puree, kiwi liqueur, pressed apple juice and fresh lemon juice. Shaken and strained over ice into a martini glass. Finished off with an edible bubblemix foam and a rubber duck sat on the top of the drink.

Featuring spherification, dry ice infusions, liquid nitrogen freezing and many others, Mr Flavour can create bespoke options not seen before at events. Whether it is serving drinks upside down to creating a drink in a fire, this menu is designed to be highly visual caused by chemical reactions!
