Holiday Cocktail Making Workshop (Virtual)

DIY Yourself to a More Festive Holiday Season

Friday December 11th 2020 at 7pm on ZOOM

In this virtual, hands-on workshop, we will learn how to make several holiday-specific cocktails from avid amateur mixologist and noted charmer, Derrick Peavy. The plan is to learn how to make at least three specific holiday-themed cocktails over the course of the workshop in real time. Then we will share our experiences ---pro and con --- as we taste our creations.

Join the DIY fun or simply watch and learn. All are welcome.
