As if there’s not enough to see, do, enjoy or experience on your next Santa Fe, New Mexico May Travel trip….. we recently took the opportunity to experience the newest in Santa Fe culinary art classes: “Mixology”! Our Mixology Experience took place at Sunrise Springs in their Willow Horticulture Kitchen. Santa Fe Spirits Mixologist James Reis was our expert mixologist and provided a truly lovely experience! He lead us in creating our own garden-to-glass drinks infused vodka or gin with garden herbs grown on site at Sunrise Springs- very cool! Libations mixed included lemon verbena, pineapple mint, apple mint, green chile, rosemary and more. Our tastings were complimented by some delectable appetizers compliments of Chef Durham of the Blue Heron Restaurant located on site of Sunrise Springs Spa! This unique and fun experience totaled $50 for a couple or $35 for single for the class, dinner was additional and well worth it!
We felt our experience was more of an adventure with the scenic drive south of Santa Fe to Sunrise Springs and all. Always a treat to drive to sites close by- then to enjoy the serene quiet grounds, immaculate landscaping of beautiful ponds, flowering vegetation, large shade trees spotted with an occasional rope swing and waterfall which source is years old natural spring feeding the property. Our view enjoyed tableside after tastings and during dinner afterward was also very pleasant. Rumor has it beginning in May garden-to-glass wine cocktails and non-alcoholic infusions and mocktails will be available! Currently, no schedule has been provided. May Santa Fe travelers will just have to keep this fun New Santa Fe to do suggestion in mind so when you arrive we’ll be able to help you in your exploration planning (which we are well known for)!
