Header Cocktail Conversation Package Tix Summer v1

You're invited to join the MHRC YP Board for another Cocktails & Conversations!

This virtual mixology class will be hosted once again by Eric Bennett and John Easterling of Continental Drift. Proceeds go to Healthy Happy Kids, a program of the Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center.

During this virtual mixology class, you will learn to make cocktails like a pro at home. You’ll also pick up bartending tips and tricks from Eric Bennett & John Easterling from the soon-to-be-opened Continental Drift bar in downtown Birmingham.

Learn to make a classic margarita, and two fall holiday margarita riffs, featuring 100% Agave Reposado Tequila, which is an aged brown tequila.

Tickets are $35, which gives you a link to the class and a Cocktail Prep Kit with the recipe and drink ingredients for two. You provide your own 100% Agave Reposado Tequila.

Cocktail Prep Kits may be picked up on November 17 from 3 pm-6 pm in the parking deck of Medical Towers 1717 11th Avenue South.

About Healthy Happy Kids

Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic in the U.S. and it’s even more severe in Alabama. One-third of Alabama children are either overweight or obese, placing them on the top of obesity charts nationally. Among racial and ethnic minority populations such as African Americans and Hispanics, obesity rates are even higher.

The MHRC designed the Healthy Happy Kids (HHK) program to teach children how good nutrition and an active lifestyle will help them lead healthier lives. For six weeks, children in Birmingham City School System after-school programs learn about healthy eating and staying active.

About the Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center

By aligning research, training, and community outreach, the MHRC advances scientific knowledge about the root causes of health inequalities and delivers real-world solutions to vulnerable communities. The MHRC is a University-wide Interdisciplinary Research Center and a designated Center of Excellence in Health Disparities Research by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
