Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2022 Mocktails Mixoff event.

Mocktails Mixoff mission is to bring public awareness of the importance of celebration options. Mocktails not just cocktails. An effort to encourage local hotspots to put non-alcoholic beverages on their drink menus.

Served in a sugar rimmed martini glass.
1oz of Real Kiwi purée.
Splash or Torani lime syrup

Garnish with cranberries and a kiwi slice that is dipped in edible silver hologram diamond dust.

It’s a colorful, glamorous, over the top looking drink. Hence the name, the Clark Griswold.

North Pole Wassil (by Pat Herman, for Center for Disabilities)
Twas the night before Christmas, and at the north pole,
The house was a’shaking with some loud rock and roll;
The old man was working and so were the elves,
Mrs. Claus and the mice had the house all to themselves;
The mice boogied down and ate crackers and cheese,
While Mrs. Claus spun and swayed in her favorite chemise;
St. Nick and his reindeer delivered package and parcel;
Whilst Mrs. Claus enjoyed glasses of warm English Wassail.
Warmed and infused with all types of spices,
It even contained some juicy orange slices;
Mrs. Claus raised her glass and gave out our cheer,
Wishing the world Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
