Culture & Cocktails: Authentic Holiday Decorations with Denny Warrenfeltz

November 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Quench your thirst for knowledge at this one-of-a-kind lecture series!

Enjoy a drink and have a think! At Culture & Cocktails, a lecture program at the Miller House Museum, we tackle a historical topic with the help of a little liquid fortitude.

In November, join us in welcoming Denny Warrenfeltz of Roostervane Gardens for a look at historically accurate holiday decorations! Learn more about the greens and plants that would have been locally available and heavily used by local citizens for holiday decorations, and the symbolism behind their use. Then watch as Denny works his magic to create two historic arrangements.

The featured cocktail will be: the Smoking Bishop! This Victorian take on mulled wine is positively Dickensian! The punch, which includes roasted clove and orange notes, was mentioned in A Christmas Carol, making it a true holiday classic.

Your ticket price will include your first drink, and refills will be available for a small fee. This event is for adults ages 21 and older, please! For more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Culture & Cocktails 2020 has been made possible by the generous support of the James and Mary Schurz Foundation.
