Zoom Cocktails with Helen McGinn


Thursday 10 December at 20:00

The Friends are proud to host the incredible Helen McGinn, author of The Knackered Mother’s Wine Club, who has offered to teach us all how to make a warming Christmas hot toddy and tell us a little bit about her favourite wines.

The evening will look something like this:


20:00 Helen will chat about festive cocktail/wine ideas and walk us through making our own Christmas Hot Toddy (ingredients below).


Helen will be coming with a glass of wine and we invite you to bring your own beverage to get the evening started.


20:20 Q and A about wine/cocktails


Please send questions beforehand, if you can!

Send to monkenhadleyfriends@gmail.com


20.30 For those brave enough to try, when Helen leaves the Zoom chat, we can all attempt to make the Christmas Hot Toddy together in our own kitchens!


You will need the following ingredients:


  • apple juice/cordial,

  • bourbon/whisky

  • orange bitters

  • slice of orange

  • hot water

Whilst the event is free, we welcome donations to our Library fundraising campaign:


The zoom link will be shared by class reps on the day.

Thank you!
