Last week Mobile Cocktails ATL worked on the Lifetime Network for another TV show. We have worked on set 8 times for several different shows and different networks including Bravo, BET, Lifetime, and Style. We have been in GQ, Southern Bride and Ebony magazines. Every year we work with dozens of large charities, A-listers as well as being a part of a few local film festivals.. In addition to helping TV and film production Mobile Cocktails ATL works a wrap parties for movies being shot in town. We are a part of what makes Atlanta a great film and TV city as well as one of the places to be seen in America. Thanks to all of our clients present and past.
One of the next elements we have been asked for is how to videos on how to cut fruit, how to make alcoholic infusions, and also how to make simple syrups. This will all be done over the next few weeks by some of our staff and presented with pictures and video as well as step by step instructions right here.
Pisco sour often drank in the caribean actually started in Peru. It was likely modeled after the whiskey sour and was created in the 20's.
To make this great cocktail you will need Pisco, egg whites, sugar, limes, ice and bitters and a proper glass. I suggest a coupe, other glasses could be a low ball or martini glass. I have substituted lemon juice for lime juice with a great deal of success.
2 oz Pisco
3/4 oz simple syrup
3/4 oz lime juice
1 (can use more) egg white
3 dashes of bitters
1 lime wheel
Shake the pisco, simple syrup and lime juice over ice, strain into a glass. Using the same shaker, use the shell to strain the egg white and toss the yolk, also be careful not to get any shell into the shaker, shake the egg white vigorously for 15 seconds, pour the egg white emusion over the cocktail and then garnish with a lime wheel and finally drop three dashes of bitters over the whites.
I love champagne cocktails. They are always festive and often something that "hasn't been done before" in a general cocktail setting. Here's our creation for a mixology style champagne cocktail.
Buffalo Trace Bourbon, fresh lemon juice, agave syrup -- (shaken) served in a coupe w/ a float of champagne - garnish with skewered raspberries.
We do at least one or two mixology classes a month. Usually we do these for small groups. Our classes are two hours long and we can do as many as 4 select / mixology style cocktails. Usually a guest or two will get up and make cocktails along side of our mixologist. Doing cocktail classes is a great way to bond with friends, family, or coworkers. Here is an example of a drink we created that has had an amazing reception among our guests. #tequila @tequila @tequilacocktails@mobilecocktailsatl
TEQUILA/ MEZCAL Herradura silver, Del Maguey Mezcal, fresh watermelon, rosemary syrup, lime juice --- (shaken) served in collins over fresh ice - garnish rosemary sprig orange wheel
So the day of your wedding is approaching and you have to supply all the coolers, ice, Coke, and Sprite, limes and so on. Who has time for all that? Now imagine you have a small window in which to get in and out of your wedding venue. Who do you think will be carrying all that ice? That's where we come in. For $5 a head we will take care of all of that for you. (minimum 30 people) Do you want your brother who flew in from Arizona having to haul cases of soda from the van to the bar area in the sun, or the rain? It may be a luxury but it is worth paying for in most cases.

@poncecitymarket This past weekend we worked the wrap party for the Avengers movie. Eight of my best guys and gals served drinks for 800+ people for a few hours at the new event center at Ponce City Market. We had a great time serving all the amazing people who worked on different aspects of the movie. It was one of the funnest events we have had of the year for sure!!
I get calls all the time for a bartender with flair, one who knows his drinks and can flip bottles. When I ask the customer if they want a bartender with a personality i.e. "flair" they immediately say, "yes!" When I finish my sentence and say or do you want a bartender who is doing tricks and flipping bottles, they get confused.
Flair bartending and a bartender with flair are two completely different things. A flair bartender probably has a great personality. He definitely knows all the cocktails you are likely to come up with. But a bartender with flair... ie personality is what people are usually asking for.
We hire bartenders personality first. Skill is important, and some are better than others. But we look for that outgoing personality. That is pretty much expected when hiring a Mobile Cocktails ATL bartender. BUT a guy who can flip bottles, stack glassware and beyond is something all together different. They are specialists and are compensated at a rate of 3 to 4 times as much per hour.
This past week Mobile Cocktails ATL worked for the Atlanta Film Festival #atlff. Here was a picture from the rooftop at Ponce City Market. #pcmatl.
My name is Derek Behning, I want to pour a beer or cocktail for every person in Atlanta. I have been in love with the hospitality industry since I was 16 in every regard.
