Along our two-and-a-half hour journey together, you’ll meet with mixologists and bartenders who are passionate about their craft.

To kick off the tour, you’ll toast to new adventures with a little bubbly before heading out into the streets of downtown. The highlight of this tour will be four perfectly sized signature cocktails, each paired with a tasty and savory appetizer. You’ll visit a distillery-by-day, tasting room-by-night to try a vintage-style Dry Gin Martini paired with a cheese charcuterie board. A hip gastropub will serve up a tequila Cranberry Paloma paired with fried Brussels sprouts. You’ll also experience a fresh and fruity mule made from ginger liqueur and pear cider from celebrity chef Brother Luck’s restaurant.

We’ll round out the tour with a specialty seasonal cocktail paired with juicy beef sliders in a swanky underground bar. A delight for all of your senses, this tour will pull back the curtain on a growing trend in Colorado Springs and help you discover a few new favorites.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Guests on The Springs Signature Cocktail Tour can request vegetarian or gluten-friendly substitutes when purchasing their ticket in advance.

Of course! If you would like to join the tour but do not intend to drink, or you only want certain pairings, we would be happy to get you a non-alcoholic substitute including a soda, ice tea, or water. Please let your Tour Leader know at the start of your tour so they can make accommodations for you.

Leaving a 15-20% gratuity for your Tour Leader is customary, especially if you had a great time and wish to recognize them for a job well done! We recognize that most people don’t carry cash these days, so our guides are able to accept credit cards at the end of the tour.

All cocktails will be served in half-size portions. For the purpose of this tour, we believe in quality, variety, and enjoying each sip in our short time together.

We’ve developed a delicious itinerary and have set the menu and drink pairings in advance with each of our restaurant partners. Because of this, we do not allow a la carte ordering. You are always welcome to return to a destination after the tour to try whatever may have tempted your taste buds!

There are four portioned savory appetizers served on The Springs Signature Cocktail Tour. Though you will be served food at every location, is not likely enough to be a dinner substitute.

Casual attire with comfortable shoes is acceptable and encouraged.
