Embark on an evening of seasonal custom cocktails and decadent chocolate to get you in the holiday spirit! From the seasonal warmth of The Local Store, we’ll depart on our festively decorated (and heated!) trolley to explore the shimmering holiday lights of Downtown Eau Claire and River Prairie en route to visit Helix Wine, Craft Bar & Cafe for a sample of their cranberry-spice Yule Mule.
We’ll then meander to Sweet Driver Chocolates and Cafe at The 1106 (formerly Artisan Forge) to enjoy sampling their expertly crafted signature chocolates and truffles (two truffles with sample wine pairing for each: Raspberry Heart (dark chocolate) and the Creme Brûlée), as well as hearing an explanation of how their delicious treats are made.
To end the night, you’ll find yourself at The Lakely to relax in the cozy fireside space with the final cocktail of the evening — The Cold Fashioned — a winterized version of the classic old fashioned with bourbon, orange bitters, and a custom holiday syrup of rosemary, cinnamon, and maple.
If you find yourself getting hungry, each location has food and small bites available to order upon arrival, or you could even sneak in the purchase of an extra drink (or chocolates!) during our time at each one!
This tour is 21+ only (attendees will be carded), and lasts approximately three hours. Regarding accessibility, our trolley requires entry up three steps from the curb, with a solid handrail on both sides.
