LUPEC Ladies Event - Recipes 

Wow! What a great night. Thanks to all of you for coming. We were so glad to have been able to have you all as our training wheels. 

Anu taught "Memories in a Glass". Inspired by her recent trip to Mexico, she infused memories of her surroundings in Mexico into the three cocktails she whipped up for you. Spices, heat, warmth, sharing and enjoying company.

Below you will find the recipes from that night. Three in total. We so look foward to seeing you all again for more classes and more fun.

Thanks LUPEC!
