On Thursday 10 April 2014, DWF Leeds YP hosted an exclusive pre-event for over 60 young professionals, including guests from PWC, Baker Tilly, and Bupa at Cocktails in the City in Leeds Town Hall. Cocktails in the City is known as the 'UK's greatest cocktail party' at which guests enjoy an evening of cocktail making demonstrations, tasting and drinks enlightenment, combined with great music and fantastic food. DWF YP guests were treated to a tutored tasting session, and learnt how to make (and taste!) the perfect mojito, French martini and whisky sour. This was followed by tempting samples of Thai fine dining from Chaophraya restaurant.
The night provided an opportunity for young professionals to join together and share their experiences, whilst learning how to make a few signature cocktails along the way!
Amy Silverwood, Chair of the Leeds Young Professional (YP) commented: 'Cocktails in the City provided an ideal platform for the DWF YP group to network in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. The interactive cocktail master class was a great way to get everyone talking and a good time was had by myself and all who attended. I'm looking forward to testing out my new cocktail making skills!'
