Mixology classes
 
How long are the typical mixology sessions? How many drinks are usually involved per person? How tipsy does one get? I know I ask a lot about alcohol, but I swear I don't have a problem.

Ours lasted a little over an hour. We made and drank 5 cocktails. Yes, you get quite a buzz!!!

We did the tequila testing back in march and it was also 5 drinks... I had to sneak out for sandwiches and wings 1/2 way through cause I was too tipsy. Lol. (There was a small buffet in the bar area)

Thanks for the info. I laughed when I saw your comment about needing food because I joked with my DW about bringing a pizza from Luigi's..

We did a rum tasting on the Magic in Sessions - it was 4 shots and a rum runner and we could barely walk to the other side of the room when we were done! I think we sat for 30-60 minutes before they kicked us out because the dancers were practicing in the bar. :rotfl:

The bartender did provide us with Coke/Diet Coke and glasses to dilute the shots once we'd tasted them - which was good because there were a couple I really wasn't fond of. Of course, DH was more than happy to finish anything I didn't want... :rotfl2:

The rum runner was excellent! :thumbsup2

One guy in our class was drinking anyone's that didn't want it. Must of had about 12-15 drinks! WOW!

I just did Martini on the Fantasy. Lasted about an hour. 5 3 ounce drinks.

Another woman we sat with probably late 60s early 70s was at the Martini with us drank her last one and then headed to wine tasting! She said no worries....her liver was well seasoned.

I did that too. Why let it go to waste? They can't pour it back in the bottle..... :rotfl2:

Thats a lot of alcohol for $15. No wonder it sells out so quickly.

I've had 5-6-7 cocktails depending on the bartender. We've also had mini drinks and full sized drinks, also depending on the bartender.

Everyone is usually plastered by the end. Except me because it seems to not affect me at all. My partner is always disappointed that I'm not even giggly. She doesn't drink, so I'd say she is a pretty good control. :thumbsup2

I did the mixology class on the Fantasy in Feb. Daniel was the bartender and he was great. I totally lost track of time but I think it was a little over an hour. Each person got behind the bar and made a drink. It was a blast. I was more than tipsy when I left. I think we made 4 or 5 drinks and then a layered shot at the end. Was definitely worth the $15!!

We did mixology on the Dream. It was about an hour and fifteen minutes. We had a blast! We made our own drinks for each other and some people were putting a LOT of alcohol in them. Some people were more tipsy than others, and yes, there were some who were also finishing other's leftovers. I had a buzz, but was totally fine. Mixology was definitely one of the highlights of our cruise!

Sounds so fun!

If you don't finish all the drinks, can you take them with you?
