Join us for an evening of candy making, booze and fun. This hands-on class will teach the basics of making alcohol-infused suckers that are not for the kids, and one of the greatest cocktails—The Margarita. In this class, our bartender will teach you how to make “the perfect margarita”. We’ll provide the tools and instruction, and you’ll practice your new “craft” by making a margarita to enjoy. Sweet Connections will show you how to make suckers infused with tequila, packed with key lime flavor and finished with a sprinkling of salt. We’ll send each student home with four Margarita suckers, a great recipe and reference card as well as their own Herradura-branded alcohol shaker, two beautiful coasters and a bottle of Herradura tequila. Wow your friends and family with your new “craft.” This class would make a unique and fun Christmas gift for that someone special! To register click here.
