Member of the Month - December 2019

Our December Member of the Month is VIP Cocktails. Bob Scott shares a couple of Christmas cocktail recipes for the festive season.

Bob Scott is no stranger to cocktail making, with his passion beginning over 25 years ago when he first built his own permanent brick built  bar at home.VIP Cocktails

Having spent many years travelling the UK in a corporate role this gave him the opportunity of watching professional cocktail makers.  During his travelling career, both business and pleasure, he visited locations such as, Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic, Portugal, the Orange Blossom Coast in Spain, North America and Canada.  This gave Bob the chance to see first-hand the diversity of spirits available in their countries of origin.

From there Bob has developed his passion into a craft where he now regularly creates bespoke cocktails for corporate clients to match their branding and values.   He can also be found hosting family gatherings, hen nights and wedding receptions offering his unique drinks created with the client in mind.  Bob’s business Niche Cocktails has now developed into a canned cocktail business which will be launching soon.  His cocktail events company continues under the new name VIP Cocktails.

You may be having your own drinks party this season and could do with a cocktail or two to offer your guests.  Bob has kindly provided a couple of recipes for you to try out at home.
