10 Fresh Mixology Ideas For Your Remote Team’s Virtual Party
Mixology is the skill of mixing various drinks and ingredients to create cocktails. Mixology is a great way to bring your employees together and understand their contributions while drinking cocktails.
Who would have guessed that tasting various drinks and cocktails could play a significant role in virtual team building? A productive team is like a well-prepared cocktail in which all the ingredients are correctly and harmoniously selected.
The event’s primary goal is to get together online in a relaxed atmosphere and, using a professional bartender and drinking cocktails, discuss your questions, debate plans for the future, play games, and have fun. Also it can be a great activity for your virtual NYE event or any other holiday party.
Four steps and one tip for hosting a memorable virtual mixology party
Organizing a virtual mixology party on your own is not that difficult. Here are five steps and one tip for doing it with almost zero hassle.
Step 1: Choose a Cocktail
Decide which cocktails you want to make at your Mixology party. Drinks can be both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. If you’re considering hiring professional bartenders, ask them which cocktails are easier to make at home.
Announce to all meeting participants what ingredients need to be prepared or order delivery for all necessary products to their homes in advance.
Step 2: Set the Stage/Scene
Since you are the organizer and moderator of the virtual meeting, your task is to create a festive atmosphere with decor. Determine the lighting, background music, and general ambiance.
Even though you are hosting your event online, decorations and branding are more important than ever. Especially if you use Party.Space, where each of your ideas can be implemented down to the smallest detail.
Step 3: Get Dressed
Having attendees change their attire will help set the mood for the party. Participants will be interested in looking the part. On the other hand, participants will have the opportunity to prepare and dress nicely on their own. So be sure they know that their dress attire won’t go unnoticed or unappreciated!
Step 4: Prepare the right snacks
Light and tasty snacks on your table are a great addition to any party. For example, if you are hosting a virtual wine tasting, be sure to select the right cheese.
Choose the right snack for each drink. You can ask your party members to get the right snacks in advance or order delivery along with the cocktail ingredients you’ll be needing.

Checklist for a Successful Virtual Mixology Party
In the end, we want to tell you a few essential points that you should pay attention to when preparing a Virtual Mixology Party.
Prepare and send out invitations to everyone. Check with participants that they have received invitations.
Make sure that all participants have the best ingredients. Deliver cocktail kits to everyone in advance.
You must provide all participants with the required tools: shakers, stirrers, and all of the works. Or at least let them know that they will need these in advance.
Games & Activities
Any successful virtual mixology party should include games and activities. Tell your participants how they should prepare for the party ahead of time.
Wrapping up the event
Get feedback from people about the Virtual Mixology Party. Let your attendees know you will collect all their feedback to improve future parties.
To get your mixology party up and running, we recommend contacting professional bartenders or agencies that specialize in organizing these types of events. Self-improvisation is not always the best step.
As for the virtual space, this makes up half of the success of an event. At Party.Space, we can create a custom virtual casino, a bar (including real places) or, if you like, your office. The atmosphere will aim to capture the smallest details of your chosen environment.
If you decide to host a party in Party.Space, we will be happy to recommend an experienced cocktail mixing agency to ensure your attendees are able to create the cocktail of their dreams.
