Mobile Cocktail Bars for your Wedding
Here at Mint Cocktail Company, we appreciate the time and effort it takes to plan your wedding day. Our approach is simply to provide you with a bartending service that's right for you.
With our bartending services, you can trust us to look after all things cocktail. We will attend your wedding with our rustic and contemporary mobile cocktail bar, providing the alcohol, specialist cocktail equipment, fresh ingredients and professional staff, so you won't have to worry about a thing.
We understand that every wedding is different, so our packages are tailor-made to your specific needs. We’re entirely flexible and can provide a range of services, including wedding entertainment, arrival drinks, a full pre-paid cocktail bar service, a reception cash bar service or a strictly bartending service.
A free, no obligation consultation is where we start to help you understand how we can be of service.
Pre-Paid Cocktail Bar Service
When you choose our Pre-Paid Cocktail Bar, you can be confident your guests will receive a unique and personalised service.
Choose from one of our cocktail packages and your guests will receive a number of cocktails. You could opt for an unlimited VIP cocktail package where your guests will receive unlimited cocktails over a specific time period.
You will be able to choose which 3 cocktails will be served at your event and your drinks can be personalised with your own names or specific ingredients to suit your special occasion.
Cash Cocktail Bar Service
With our Cash Cocktail Bar service, we will attend your wedding and provide a cash bar, so your guests simply pay for drinks as you would in a normal bar.
A Bar Tab with a maximum spend is a similar option, it allows you to treat your guests to a particular number of drinks. You simply pay a fixed amount towards the bar sales and your guests can order drinks as they wish.
Once the prepaid amount has been reached, we will open the bar as a cash bar. There may be a minimum spend and we do require a booking fee which secures your date and covers travel, licensing and administration fees.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Do you serve non-alcoholic cocktails for our guests who aren't drinking?
Yes!All of our cocktails can be made as a non-alcoholic version, and in some cases we will also have a specialist 'cocktail' on offer for those who aren't drinking or for the kids!
Could you provide welcome drinks?
Of course!Sometimes it's nice to treat your guests to welcome drinks with a little bit more thought that just a glass of Prosecco or bottle of beer on arrival to your wedding reception.We can provide specialist cocktails for your guests with inspiration from you and your partner.We can plan exactly which cocktails you'd like as welcome drinks with you directly.
What licensing do I require for my wedding and are you fully licensed?
Each wedding is different.We are fully licensed. We have Personal License Holders which enable us to sell alcohol at your wedding. For a cash bar service to operate at your wedding, the venue will need to hold a Premesis License or (if you are planning a tipi wedding or DIY wedding), a Temporary Event Notice. (TENS)If you require a TENS, we will acquire this for you from the local authority to where your wedding will take place. However, if your venue already holds a Premesis License, we would need permission from the venue to work under this.If you are paying for all of the cocktails upfront, and there aren't going to be any cash transactions at your wedding because your guests are drinking for free, you do not require a license.A Designated Premesis Supervisor (DPS) will be on hand at our cocktail bar on the day of your wedding to ensure everything runs smoothly and efficiently.We have Public Liability insurance of up to 5 million pounds and also have a Food Hygiene Rating of 5*Licensing is a hard thing to understand, but let us do that hard bit for you, so you can focus on the important things for your wedding. Like cake.
We are on a budget wedding but would love a cocktail bar there, can you help?
Definitely. Cost is a huge factor when it comes to planning your suppliers for your wedding. We can provide a Cash Cocktail Bar for your wedding for £295.00 where we will turn up with a fully equipped mobile cocktail bar and professional mixologists. The £295.00 covers us getting there, set up costs, licensing and administration fees.
Can you take card payments?
We can! With our mobile cocktail bars your guests can choose to pay with cash, credit or debit card, Apple Pay and contactless payments. Sometimes sweets, depending who's working the bar!
How many guests can you cater for?
We've delivered events for as little as 10 people, to as many as 175,000. Try us.
Will there be a minimum spend at my wedding, and will I be responsible for making up the costs?
In most cases we require a minimum spend. This depends on how many guests are going to be at your wedding.It's fair. We need to make sure we are covering our costs. We normally work out a minimum spend by (how many guests are at your wedding x £5.00) So, if you have 100 guests and pay £295.00 for our cash bar service, your minimum spend will be £205.00.We've never had a wedding where the minimum spend hasn't been reached. This is because our cocktails are so good, people keep on coming back for more!
Do you serve any other drinks than just cocktails?
Indeed. We understand that this is your special day, and if you want Gin, you can have Gin! We always serve a selection of cocktails and mocktails, cocktail shots like Pornstar Martini bombs and most of the time will have a 'Special' on at your event. In the past we have provided bottles of beer and premium Gins and Tonics. We steer clear of draught products and wines. Ultimitely, just ask us! We're more than happy to work with you to providing everything you want to help you and your guests have the most wonderful day.
We'd like a free bar for our guests, can we pay for everything?
You can. When you enquire about our services, we will send you 3 different options of a Pre Paid Bar.We break it down into a set number of drinks for your guests, or a completely free bar for your guests. We will give you different prices based on different hourly periods. So an unlimited cocktail bar service for 5 hours will cost you X amount based on how many guests there are.
Who have you worked for before?
We hold an impressive corporate portfolio. We have delivered events for Facebook, Deloitte, Mercedes Benz, The Mayor of London, Spice UK, Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts, The RAF, The Royal Mail, Two Seasons, The YMCA, Lucid Group, Next and many more.We have also provided our cocktail bar for celebrity Kady McDermott who was a runner up in Love Island.
Do you need access to any power or water?
Nope. We are completely self contained. We bring our own water source, and we decorate our bars in battery powered fairy lights. Noisy, pollutive generators aren't our thing.
What are the cocktails served in?
We serve all of our cocktails in environmentally friendly plastic cups. At public events, licensing don't allow you to use glassware for health and safety reasons. We also use paper straws to conserve our environmental impact. Plastic straws are on offer though, but only for people who have a disability.
How much will the cocktails cost at our wedding?
Our cocktails are priced reasonably between £5-£8. We sometimes have offers on including 2 cocktails shots for £5.00 or a happy hour deal.
What are your payment plans?
We require a deposit for our mobile cocktail bars, which secures your date and closes it off in our diary. This is non-refundable. If you are having a Pre-Paid bar, your final payment doesn't need to be paid until 3 weeks prior to your wedding. So you can secure your date for £195.00 deposit and pay the rest just before your big day. We also have payment plans in place where you can split the cost over each month leading up to your wedding, interest free.
