One of the highlights of the 2015 holiday season was our Cookies & Cocktails workshop that took place on December 9th at The Mill in Hershey. It was a festive evening filled with sweet treats, tasty spirits and plenty of holiday cheer. Guests took over the third floor bar at one of my favorite restaurants to enjoy a sampling of freshly baked Christmas Cookies that were carefully paired with a selection of hand crafted signature cocktails. The bartenders stirred and shook each drink while Mill host, Candy Mellinger explained the process and the inspiration behind each one. The Mill uses fresh ingredients, premium spirits and original recipes which is why their cocktails are nothing short of fabulous! One of my favorite combinations was the Yule Mule paired with an Italian chocolate dipped butter cookie. Amazing!
The guests in attendance were so much fun and the vibe was light and cheerful! Everyone had a great time sampling, mingling and celebrating the season. They took home mixology tips and tricks, recipes and bags of cookies to continue the party at home. It was a very merry workshop! I can't wait to do it again next year!
