Have your cocktail-mixing skills failed to progress past the collegiate stage of vodka and a mixer in a plastic cup? Do you love a good drink after work, but don't know how to create one in your own home? Then get yourself to the Foshay for a special event that aims to demystify the world of mixology. Join folks in the Living Room lounge or upstairs in Prohibition as experts share tips and tricks while making two smashing cocktails for you to try. You'll also be able to sample a variety of spirits, such as Effen, Sauza Blue, Jim Beam Black, and Rose Courvoisier, along with complimentary appetizers. Prizes include a home bar set from Martin Patrick, but even if you don't win big you'll leave with a drink kit swag bag so that you can recreate some of the evening's concoctions at your next fabulous party.
