- For $37, you get three hours of services from a professional, licensed-and-insured bartender (a $75 value).
- For $240, you a mixer package for a party of up to 100 people, including six hours of services from a professional bartender, a portable bar and linens for the duration of your event, 100 pounds of ice, and a mixer package of soft drinks, margarita mix, limes, plastic utensils, straws, and napkins (up to a $495 total value).

Brandishing corkscrews, ice scoops, and glowing personalities, Shake It Up's skilled libationists mix fancy drinks for clients' celebrations. One hour before party time, a barkeep arrives at the fete, dismount his trusty steed, corrals ice cubes, and lassos wayward citrus fruits. After chilling liquids and slicing garnishes, the bartender helps to transform the room into a swanky speakeasy, dishing out martinis, manhattans, and sparkling conversation. The server takes special care to keep the drink station clean and constantly refreshes coolers, ice bins, and online photo albums of refrigerators. When limbo marathons and donkey-tail pinnings come to an end, the mixologist scrubs the bar to remove every last foot- and hoof-print.
Alternatively, in the mixer package, party hosts notch six hours of bartending services, 100 pounds of ice, and enough mixers for up to a 100-person shindig—including tonic water, margarita mix, pineapple and cranberry juice, and three types of soda. Drink-shakers bring along a portable bar that they set up, tear down, and transform into a puppet-show set during boring parts. Each bartender additionally supplies his own drink-making tools and crowd-wowing tales, which may include Shake It Up's cocktail-slinging feats at Super Bowl XLII or play-by-plays from swizzle-stick jousting tourneys.
