Grab some friends and join us for a luxe happy hour, the perfect way to unwind after a long week or kick-off a weekend getaway in Colorado Springs! We’ve curated a lively and exclusive experience that features sample cocktails from four trendsetting destinations in downtown Colorado Springs.
Along our two-and-a-half hour journey together, you’ll meet with mixologists and bartenders who are passionate about their craft. You’ll learn about the origin of some of the spirits used, the history of some classic cocktails, and how bartenders today are breaking the mold and creating new flavors. Enjoy private demonstrations on how these libations come together.
The highlight of this tour are the 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 gin cocktail paired with a cheese charcuterie board. A hip gastropub will serve up a seasonal cocktail 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.
