First of all, I'd like to thank Tim Yap for inviting me to the Masterclass Mixology with London's Champion Mixologist Rod Eslamieh at Robot. I learned how to make, as Rod would put it, "Old school, new twist" drinks!
When you get an invite to attend a Masterclass in Mixology, you need to have a certain mindset: "Learn more, drink less". I'm happy to report that despite the urge of downing all the refreshing, yummy (and "strong") cocktails Rod taught us, I managed (with great self control, mind you. Haha!) to pace myself and was able to concentrate on learning the history and recipes of the drinks.
Any event, party or even a class that Tim hosts, you can guarantee that it would be fun, fabulous, plus, he has a knack of inviting the perfect mix of guests!
