At weddings and events, the party often hovers around the bar and the dance floor and sometimes it seems like no matter where the bar is that’s where the party is. And we happen to know the best party hosts in town – their names are Andrew and Sarah and they are the owners of Twist of Fate Craft Cocktails.
Twist of Fate is a full service, professional mobile bartending company that works at both indoor and outdoor venues. They know their stuff! They have a great seasonal menu and can even create custom signature cocktails for your event. We have had the pleasure of trying most of their creations and oh man, they are delicious! Writing this post definitely has us ready for a drink (or four)! ?

One of our favourite things about Twist of Fate is that they can work with an existing bar at your venue or, better yet, they can bring the bar to you! They have three beautifully crafted custom bars that can be placed on any level surface and are ready good to go. Andrew, Sarah, and their team are always onsite long before the party starts, getting their bars into place and making sure they are all set for the long night ahead.
Lovingly named “Bullwinkle” their impressive 16ft reclaimed wood bar is truly a show stopper.

More often that not, we let Bullwinkle speak for himself. He’s usually the strong silent type. However, we’ve dressed him up a few times!

If a 16ft bar isn’t going to quite fit for your event space, or if you have a smaller group, then Bullwinkle’s trusty sidekick, Rocky, is a great option! Recently, a beautiful white bar was also added to the collection, Elsie, and we can’t wait to have her on site this summer! She’s a beauty!

Maybe your guests aren’t a liquor loving bunch, and that is totally okay. Twist of Fate also offers an extensive array of zero-proof craft cocktails, specifically designed for those who choose not to imbibe. They’ve also created children-specific drinks, and always have local craft lemonades, sodas, and juices behind the bar to keep everyone hydrated!
Whatever Twist of Fate concocts, it’s unique, delicious and leaves guests (very, very) happy!

There’s so much we love about cocktails and delicious drinks at weddings, but one of our favourite things is how you can personalize the drinks to fit your style and design perfectly. The Twist of Fate team always encourages our couples to be creative with their signature cocktails and is happy to brainstorm everything from drink colours and glass style to garnish options and playful names for the cocktails themselves!

Right now while the whole world is sticking closer to home, Twist of Fate is offering a special package for your at-home happy hour! Curbside Cocktails is a pre-made cocktail mix featuring some of Twist of Fate’s best recipes. There is a recipe for every type of alcohol that you may have laying around at home. All orders come with the cocktail mix, fun garnishes, a recipe card, and free delivery within Greater Victoria.
- Cocktail Shaker
- 2 oz Good Quality Gin
- 0.75 oz Fresh Lemon
- 0.75 oz Honey Syrup * To make Honey syrup: Add 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 cup water to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until blended, and let cool.
- Combine all ingredients in a shaker, shake well. The honey syrup is thick, so make sure it's a good 15 seconds.
- Strain into a coupe.
- Feel free to add a fun garnish, and if you want to be creative with the honey syrup, feel free (lavender, rosemary, cardamom would all be fun additions, and there's lots more).
Here at The Good Party we know how GOOD their drinks are – whether it’s the Dirty Bourbon Sour, the Raspberry Margarita, or the perfect floral tones of the Bubbles & Botanical mix, you can’t go wrong with an order!
