Virtual Mixology Event Celebrating AIIM SW Chapter and 2021 (See ingredients list below)

When:  Dec 9, 2021 from 05:30 to 17:00 (CT)
Associated with  Texas: Southwest Chapter


Let’s kick off the 2021 Holiday Season with a virtual holiday happy hour led by Mixologist Angie Bryan of Portland, Maine.  

Angie is a humble-yet-accomplished-mixologist | mocktail maven | multi-lingual former US diplomat and Afghanistan expert | current Portland Herald Cocktail review weekly columnist | weight-lifter (she has lifted over 300 pounds deadlifting) | Native Houstonian and Trinity University alumna!

We look forward to gathering around the virtual table for this fun celebration of, and with, each other. Please feel free to invite others to this event and to bring along (to your computer screen or theirs) someone you love.

Use the ingredient list below for the featured cocktail to stock up on what you need for the event. She will entertain us during the happy hour as she teaches us how to make and enjoy the event’s trademark cocktail. Whether you have been part of the AIIM Southwest Chapter community or are just wondering what the buzz is about, we hope you will be part of this event.

• 1 T lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
• 2 T Chambord raspberry liqueur (available in nip size)
• 3 T (one nip) gin
• bubbly (no need to get anything fancy – a mini bottle of prosecco or cava is perfect)
• Angostura bitters
• 3 oz (1/4 C plus 2T or just two nips) bourbon whiskey
• 1 cup regular sugar
• 1 cup fresh cranberries
• 2 cups water
• optional: 1-3 fresh or frozen raspberries for garnish
• optional: orange peel for garnish
• enough ice to pack a cocktail shaker and fill one whiskey glass

• saucepan big enough to contain over two cups of boiling liquid; something to stir it with
• small Pyrex container (like a measuring cup) which can hold hot liquid
• cocktail shaker (or a protein shake shaker)
• strainer
• one champagne flute or coupe and one whiskey glass (but any glass will work)

For the first 5-10 minutes of our session, you will need access to a burner on your stove. If that’s not possible or convenient for you, you can make the cranberry simple syrup in advance on your own. I’ll still demo it during the event, though. All you need to do is bring 2 cups water, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup fresh cranberries to a boil, then cook for 4-5 minutes. The cranberries will begin bursting and your kitchen will smell amazing. Strain out the berries so that you are left with the cranberry simple syrup, which you should store in the fridge until we’re ready to use it.
