Nevada Hotel and Lodging Association is presenting a fun Women in Lodging virtual activity on April 7. Vodka-it’s just water will be presented by TJ McNally, Corporate Director of Beverage Operations Boyd Gaming.
Our Women in Lodging members work hard all day, every day, and need a relaxing break sometimes. They also enjoy getting together with family and friends whenever possible. This virtual session is fun and will present three recipes for cocktails using vodka from the comfort and safety of participants’ own homes.
TJ will demonstrate three tasty cocktails you can make and enjoy at home. Invite your friends to log in and let’s all learn and sample together…virtually. Be sure you have the proper ingredients on hand so you can work along with TJ for each of three cocktails. Upon registration more information will be provided, as well.
The first cocktail will be Strawberry Mint. Yum! Here are the ingredients you will need to make this one:
