Welcome to Hanoi, a city known for its history, culture, cuisine – and cocktails! If you are keen to explore Vietnamese culture and cocktails, even from afar, this online tour is the perfect virtual adventure!
You’ll kick off your online tour and mixology class with a welcome from your local Vietnamese guides, Manh and Duy. They’ll tell you about some popular beverages in Hanoi before you embark on your own cocktail-making experience.
Virtually wander through the hidden alleys of Hanoi and into the local market, where you’ll see locals shopping for fresh fruit and other supplies. Your guide will stop at one of the vendors and buy the ingredients you’ll need for your cocktail – it’ll feel like you’re shopping in the market as well but from home! As you explore, your guide will share untold stories and facts about Vietnamese drinks and cocktail culture in this 1,000-year-old city.
Supplies in hand, you’ll then head off to the home of a Hanoian family, where your cocktail lesson will begin. Your host will explain to you how the ingredients and flavours come together to create a truly unique “made-in-Hanoi” cocktail.
Once you’ve made your own drink at home, sit back, sip your cocktail, and enjoy some conversation about local life. Feel free to ask your guides any questions you may have about visiting Vietnam.
