Cocktails on the Farm

Are you a lady? Do you love cocktails? If so, be sure not to miss the next Cocktail on the Farm night at Urban Roots Farm. Hosted by a rotating roster of mixologists, this ladies-only event is the perfect mixture of education and fun all rolled into one picturesque evening. Throughout the night, you’ll have the opportunity to make and enjoy three cocktails, nibble on some tasty small plates, bask in front of a fire pit and stroll through the fields and greenhouses. If you haven’t yet had a chance to visit Urban Roots Farm, this is the best excuse to make some time to explore this enchanting farm nestled in Springfield’s West Central neighborhood. Once you step off the street and onto the farm you’ll feel instantly transported out of the city. 

Originally created in 2015 by Mallory Leicht, the blogger behind Chase the Flavor, Cocktails on the Farm was envisioned as a way for women to learn about cocktails in a relaxed and encouraging environment. At stations, learn to make each drink and take home a recipe card so you can recreate your favorites at home. Currently, Cocktails on the Farm is hibernating for the winter, but be sure to watch Facebook when the weather turns warmer. The first event of 2017 is planned for May. 

$30; dates and time vary; 831 W. State St., Springfield; 417-597-4858
