Editors Dylan + Skylar here. 👋 We recently put our mixology skills to the test at downtown’s Liquor Lab Nashville, where we learned from the pros how to make three holiday-themed craft cocktails.

Here are a few basics to know before you go:

  • Location: 144 2nd Ave. N., Ste. 10
  • What you’ll need: Make sure to bring your photo ID and inform the Liquor Lab team of any allergies you have or any non-alcoholic substitutes you desire. Doors open ~30 minutes before the class begins.
  • Food: Most classes include a meal or refreshments — NASHtoday’s class kicked off with a prepackaged barbecue meal with mac and cheese and cornbread.
  • Class schedule: Classes are listed a couple months in advance; a few of the upcoming offerings include Espresso Martinis and More, The Story of Tennessee Whiskey, and Iconic NOLA Cocktails.

Without further ado, check out the three holiday cocktails we made in this video and find the ingredients for each drink below.

Holiday cocktails

Holiday Toddy — brandy, apple syrup, hot tea, and heavy cream
Festive Collins — gin, cranberry syrup, lime juice, and tonic
Mulled Spice OF — mulled spice-infused whiskey, spiced Demerara syrup, and bitters

Pro tip: No need to bring a notebook and pen to write down the recipes. Liquor Lab will send you instructions following the class.
