The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12, via Zoom.

Attendees will receive a recipe card with the ingredients needed to make the perfect Old Fashioned cocktail. The Zoom link will include an invitation to the virtual Yappy Hour. The event will include “a step-by-step virtual tutorial by an expert mixologist on how to re-create the famous Hacienda Old Fashioned,” DACHS said.
