For December’s event we had one goal in mind: to spread so much holiday cheer that everything exploded into snow.
Though it may not have literally snowed at Alleia last night, the amount of cheer, joy, laughter, and love that filled the bar was astronomical! Every month I am absolutely astounded by the amount of amazing women that join us to drink whiskey, meet new people, and have a ridiculous amount of fun. Last night was no exception.
The first half of the evening was spent in the bar area where Alleia whipped up four amazing cocktails for us to try out and they most certainly did not disappoint! “The First Day of Christmas” definitely won crowd favorite being mixed up with Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7, spiced pear cider simple syrup, fresh squeezed lemon juice, and hot apple cider. (Don’t worry, we’ll put up all of the recipes once we get them so you can re-create at home)
Athen’s Distributing of Chattanooga provided us with long-time whiskey classic Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 as well as Gentleman Jack and Holiday Select. Ladies sipped on cocktails and drank their whiskey neat with a flight to try all of different spirits out.
If you have yet to seek out the Holiday Select you most certainly should! A 98 Proof whiskey that goes a bit deeper than Old No. 7. You’ll find hits of oak and char; interesting enough I didn’t find much maple. If you like your whiskey hot- I would suggest giving it a try.
For the second portion of the evening, Alleia opened their community table up for all us Whiskey Women to enjoy an outstanding 3 course meal prepared by Chef Daniel Lindley and Eric Pippert. Not only was dinner incredibly delicious, it was a lot of fun passing dishes to one another and sharing a meal with friends old and new.
All in all, the night was an absolute success! Thank you to all who joined us and brought so much energy into Alleia. We hope to see all of you at our next event.
