Yusef was a pleasure to work with. We provided him with a french recipe for a unique cocktail that he was able to simplify and mix within two days time. We used the cocktails for an influencer partnership and Yusef took the initiative to drop off the drinks personally.

Such a fun cocktail making class with Nandini and Yusef!  We scheduled this a week in advance and they were all up for it. Everyone had such a good time and made such wonderful drinks! Highly recommended for a teambudiling event, company wide event, family event and everything else!

The Cocktail Architect was a wonderful host for our online event, creating two signature Interior Design inspired cocktails that were a huge hit! I highly recommended it if you are looking for a fun-filled and educational experience! I also loved the trivia aspect they brought to the occasion.

Keep connected
