When visiting Koh Samui you might come across what is known by the locals as a Sangsom Bucket consisting of Thai Whiskey and Redbull inside the neon colored sand bucket. Although the idea of drinking from a bucket sounds like a fun idea you will soon regret it in the morning as your head will be begging you for an aspirin and a bottle of water.
Fortunately for some visitors to Koh Samui that are not interested in drinking Whiskey out of a bucket, you will find some great Cocktail classes on the island that tickle your taste buds and at the same time protect you from a banging headache in the morning.
Why not experience life on the other side of the bar, with a cocktail master class. These classes will reveal the secrets to some cocktail bar classics, and also align with your island surroundings such as a Piña Colada, Mojito or Old Fashioned. Much like learning homemade Thai cooking classes wouldn’t it be great if you could learn to mix, muddle, mash and concoct your own cocktails?
