Mexican-Inspired Happy Hour

Aug 5, 2021 | 5:30 pm 6:30 pm CDT


Who doesn’t love queso and a refreshing summer beverage?  Join us for this happy hour workshop for a delicious yet simple Mexican-inspired menu.  Learn to make aguas frescas, a refreshing Mexican drink typically made with fruit, sugar, water, and ice.  You’ll learn our formula for making aguas frescas with all kinds of different seasonal fruits, and also our favorite recipe for Agua Fresca de Pepino, or cucumber-lime.  Then we’ll get cooking by making Queso Picante, a warm cheese dip flavored with onions and peppers, and the perfect accompaniment to chips or tortillas.  Learn some pro tips for preparing Mexican food at home with our chef’s recommended tools, ingredients, and resources.   Please note: This workshop is a demo only and does not include a kit for pick-up, so you can join us from anywhere! After registration, we will send you a digital packet – shopping list, equipment list, recipe and any prep ahead steps. To avoid this email going to your spam folder, add wowexperience@whirlpool.com to your contact list. For this workshop, you’ll want to have all your ingredients and equipment set before the start.  Everything else we’ll do in class together.  You’ll finish just in time to sit down and enjoy your hard work.
