Join Tom Chadwick of Dram in Williamsburg and Mayur Subbarrao of Mayahuel in the East Village for a primer on warming winter tipples. You’ll learn the basics of holiday punches, mulled wines, possets, and the coveted Tom & Jerry cocktail to help you kick-start the merrymaking this holiday season.

Happy December

Drinks are two-for-one, too, and, as an added bonus, the bar is featuring two holiday cocktails: Winter Nog spiked with Drambuie, Irish cream, fresh mint, and a candy cane garnish; and Santa’s Little Helper, made with Santa Teresa 11-year-old rum and Godiva dark chocolate shavings.
