Cocktail Lab

Does mixing drinks make you feel like a chemist?

Discover the science behind your favourite cocktails and wow your friends with the science of it all at your very own Cocktail Lab!

What is a Cocktail Lab?

It’s more than simply combining the right alcohol with the right mixer and garnish. You’ll learn how flavours change when you mix ingredients and find new ways to make complex drinks with a scientific twist and a splash of creativity. Ask and find the answers to questions such as, “How can I make a colour-changing cocktail?” and “What is the secret behind the perfect whiskey sour?” Along the way, drink your science experiments while you play trivia and bar puzzles, and cool off with a boozy liquid nitrogen ice cream.
