Holiday gatherings call for dialing up your skills in the craft-cocktail realm. One-up your friends this holiday season with tips and tricks from the professionals at The Parlor.  Join MyNorth and Traverse Magazine for a Whiskey Cheer Mixer at the Parlor, Thursday December 8, to see how master mixologist, Joe Glashouser, literally lights it up.

Don’t take our word on the amazingness of the Parlor’s Smoke Stack craft cocktail—come hang out from 8 p.m.–11 p.m. and try it first hand! The event is open to the public, but click on the ticket button to get a special drink voucher for $9 good for any of the holiday craft cocktails (normally $12) featured in the December issue AND an automatic raffle entry for an epic home bar starter kit. (Think butane torch, copper shaker, and more).   A portion of all ticket drink voucher proceeds will be donated to Toys for Tots.


Head downtown for TC’s Ladies Night shopping extravaganza and then meander to the Parlor (anytime from 8-11). All drinks featured in the December Traverse Magazine’s Winter Whiskey story will be available.

In the meantime, check out this MyNorth video to learn how to create The Smoke Stack. This whiskey cocktail isn’t for the faint of heart.
