In June 2014 we were very pleased to welcome 2 local P7’s classes to Grill 48 to enjoy a meal, a tour round our kitchens and the chance to make a Mocktail (non alcoholic cocktail) behind our bar. The children had a ball and the parents seemed very impressed with what we were able to offer. We then decided that we could develop the idea further and create a Mocktail party for children age 10-14.

We welcome the children into the restaurant and take them to their own Mocktail Session Behind Bar private dining area, with their own choice of music, (sometimes our music is for the older generation after all ha ha). The children then enjoy either a 3 course meal or finger buffet. Each child is then given the opportunity to come behind the bar with one of our mixologists to make a Mocktail of their choice. There are 4 to chose from, Fruity Number, Lemon and Lime Jam Jar, Apple Twist, and a Cranberry Cutie. Once they have made their cocktail they can chill out on the comfy sofa’s and have a relaxing afternoon.

Mocktail ShakerAt a recent party Mairi from Mairi Claire Photography was also on hand to take some professional shots of the children while they were making the mocktails, and also ensure that there were plenty of group shots, which will make a great keepsake of the day.

After a recent Mocktail party our guest’s had this to say:
“Linn and Mairi from Grill 48 for hosting an amazing Mocktail Party. The kids all had a ball and loved going behind the bar making their cocktails. The party was completely stress free for me and filled with fun n excitement for the kids. We were also so lucky to have Mairi who is a professional photographer on hand to take pictures which I can’t wait to see. I highly recommend Grill 48 and this type of party if you are looking for something a wee bit different and more grown up for your kids.” – Michelle Wallace Jan 2015
