This Valentine’s Day, you can shake things up with that special someone at The Graduate hotel at 400 N. Lamar Blvd.
On Sunday, local bartender and celebrity mixologist Chip Moore will host a special Valentine’s Day mixology class.
Guests will see tricks of the trade, while learning how to mix their favorite cocktails.
“It’s an opportunity to learn to make yours — or your significant other’s — favorite cocktails,” Moore said.
Organizers say they were trying to think creatively for Valentine’s Day.
“We wanted to do something special for the community that fit the Graduate Oxford brand, providing an educational experience, while being welcoming, fun and creatively inspired,” he said.
Moore said those who attend will learn how to make a cosmopolitan and a French 75, among other drinks.
“It will provide a unique date experience in an enjoyable atmosphere,” Moore said, adding that he’ll be there to answer questions.
After becoming a skilled mixologist, participants can follow pre-dinner drinks with a romantic meal at The Coop, the hotel’s rooftop lounge and terrace.
The class begins at 5 p.m. and is $50 per person.
To reserve a spot, guests can call the hotel at 662-234-3031 ext. 513.
