The Festive Special with Dropbox

We will be celebrating the holidays by learning bartending techniques and how to mix three festive cocktails or mocktails - this interactive cocktail workshop will teach you cocktails that impress!

Collin’s mixology philosophy is to demystify the bar by making cocktails approachable, joyful, creative, and of course tasty.

In this experience, you will learn an apple cranberry negroni, a peppermint brandy eggnog and a cranberry cinnamon whiskey sour.

You'll get hands-on demonstration, sampling of each drink, and of course a Q&A with your personal mixologist.
