Our Favorite Holiday Cocktail Recipes To Enjoy This Season

Holiday Mixology Night and Martini Classes are a popular resident and tenant favorite event that we’ve been able to host virtually across many of our communities recently. In one of our most recent Martini Class nights, we were thrilled to receive amazing feedback from a Property Manager who joined in with our residents on an evening around the history of cocktail making and tips for crafting the best version from home. Laura Crane from Avalon at Arlington Square shared with us,

“The Martini Class last night was so good! My husband and I both attended and we absolutely loved it, and so did our residents. Zachary Faden was extremely knowledgeable and a great host. We learned a lot — my husband immediately pulled out his bar tools and made a martini afterwards! Congrats on a great event”

We love being able to keep our communities engaged and connected socially with fun events like these during these times when many are still struggling in isolation through the ongoing pandemic. As our way of spreading some fun and festivity, we’re sharing three of our favorite winter cocktails to enjoy this holiday season similar to what is crafted at one of our virtual Mixology Nights. We hope you have a chance to enjoy making your own at home, and if you do, please tag us at @tfliving with your results! Cheers!
