Mulled Wine Challenge for the Holidays
Spice up your Holiday Party with a "warm" team-building event: The Mulled Wine Challenge. Mulled wine, the vine's version of a classic hot toddy, is a traditional holiday beverage around the world.
In the Mulled Wine Challenge teams will make a very special holiday drink that includes Red Wine, other "potent" beverages, holiday spices, oranges and other fruits, cloves, cinnamon and lots of other "secret" ingredients. Teams will be instructed in the basics of Mulled Wine before the culinary portion, but each team will rely on its own creativity to make the very best!
Our Facilitator will describe the history of Mulled Wine, a European holiday drink that takes different incarnations in different countries. Teams will be challenged to a trivia quiz to see how much information they have retained—and also to allow the winning teams to have an advantage of picking their ingredients first in the challenge portion.
This TeamBuilding Unlimited Mulled Wine Challenge will tantalize your taste buds while challenging your knowledge and creativity.
In addition to mixing and cooking lemons and lots of other fruits with wine , other beverages and "secret" ingredients, each team will develop a marketing plan for their drink, a new logo and slogan, a name for "their" winery and their specific holiday warm mulled wine and so much more!
Our knowledgeable facilitator will educate the group on the history of Mulled Wine aka Glogg.
This is the perfect mixology team-building event!
