Topsy-Turvy Tipples & Tea
When: February 7, 2020
Where: The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes
An Alice in Wonderland-inspired affair provided guests an immersive experience with entertaining hosts guiding guests through a menu of tantalizing tea party cocktails and bites.
A curiously unique grown-up “tea” party on the lawn, featuring Hendrick’s Gin libations and an array of fanciful tidbits and treats. Hendrick’s Gin’s unique, yet curious, flavor comes from a combination of roses and cucumbers with a divine blend of eleven other botanicals. The Hendrick’s Gin team hosted a gala dinner event to feature fun creative Hendrick’s cocktails for 72 guests on the Da Vinci Lawn at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes. The idea came from similar events the team has held around the country and was an inspiration to have guests enjoy an interactive evening and education about gin and gin cocktails!
Hendrick’s is known for their unusual and creative events and this was no exception. The team hosted guests and partnered with Fever-Tree Mixers to create fun, unique cocktails in a Mad Hatter type tea party.
The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes culinary team prepared items that paired perfectly with drinks and the guests were entertained by actors and jugglers who told stories of gin and the amazing world of Hendrick’s.
The evening culminated with a specialty dessert and cocktail and each guest was given a balloon and sharp needle. As each guest popped their balloons butterflies emerged and flew off into the night!
An amazing time had by all!
