Tap This Master Mixologist for Virtual Demonstrations for Groups

August 17, 2020

From “Day 1,” when we had to take this turn and create virtual experiences, we at Cerbelli Creative decided whoever we work with has to be more than just a “watch me party.” We knew The Cup Bearer would be up for the task and would create an extraordinary bar experience for at-home mixologists.

The Cup Bearer is a premier bartending and mixology catering company in New York City. At events, The Cup Bearer bartenders breathe life into what some think of as a lackluster exchange–ordering a drink at a bar.

Justin Pasha, owner and master mixologist, breathes this same life into the virtual experience. Whether onsite or virtual, each cocktail is diligently crafted from scratch, as guests are drawn into a playful performance.

A combination of exceptional drinks with skilled service is The Cup Bearer’s specialty, blended effortlessly with your vision for a unique celebration. The Cup Bearer shares a likeness to the fresh, polished yet engaging experience you may find in a five-star cocktail bar in Singapore, or a members-only lounge in Abu Dhabi.

A full-service experience, they will enthusiastically guide guests through the process of crafting signature cocktails. They transformed the meaning of “virtual cocktail hour” to create an immersive, interactive experience for teams and clients. Work alongside Justin to create a custom menu for your session—focusing on one liquor or several—to teach attendees the foundation behind creating basic and advanced cocktails.

How It Works for Virtual Groups

The Cerbelli Creative team curates Cocktail Care Packages for each attendee that include everything they need to shake up their own drinks along with The Cup Bearer. These carefully-assembled packages include fresh ingredients like fruits, citrus, herbs and simple syrup, and bartending staples like a shaker, a strainer and a muddler.

Each box may be branded or upgraded with liquor, then shipped or hand-delivered to each participant’s home. Let us navigate the complicated liquor laws and shipping hurdles so you can focus on leading your team and connecting with your clients.

The Cup Bearer: The Elite Virtual Cocktail & Bar Experience elevates the occasion. Cheers!
