CommunityConnect | DIY Summer Mocktails
Thursday, July 18th
5:30 - 7pm
$45 (Includes appetizers + recipe book)
Learn to mix your own fun, complex, non-alcoholic beverages for your next get-together, with bartender, Kelly Kuhn! Too often, "mocktails” are extra sweet and unimaginative, but it is possible to make non-alcoholic drinks that are exciting and actually complement the food they are paired with. In this workshop, you will learn some tried and true recipes for mocktails that will wow your guests, and try your hand at making your own non-alcoholic concoctions! And as a bonus, you’ll learn about using ingredients sustainably, like leftover bits you might have thrown out, as well as fresh herbs and fruits, to create unique and interesting flavors. Alongside the demonstration and hands-on workshop, enjoy light appetizers celebrating the vibrancy of summer's bounty, with ingredients sourced locally and straight from MEarth's organic gardens, expertly paired with mocktails by Kelly Kuhn.
Youth age 12 and under can attend for free, with an adult attendee (at a 1-to-1 adult to child ratio).
