Founder of the Blind Pig Cocktail Co., Somers Carr gives us an entertaining demonstration on how to create a Russian Christmas, which is a play on the White Russian cocktail.  In addition to bringing their own equipment they also can supply their own props!!  We just LOVE this vintage cash machine!

This cocktail went down so smooth and is surprisingly easy to make! 

Tip: substitute half and half with milk if you want to go lighter on calories.


Award winning mixologist Matt Francis creates a Pumpkin Spiced Seal which is a play off a pumpkin spiced latte. I love the use of Goslings Rum which adds local flair.  Honestly, this drink tastes so good its dangerous! I know these are sure to get any party started.

Tip:  Use almond milk in either drink recipe for guest who are lactose intolerant.

Cheers to amazing drinks with amazing friends.  Thank you Janie for hosting us in your beautiful home.  xx
