You will also be treated to a great little paired nosh crafted by a chef at Cantigny. We’ll start with a short walk to our destination from the Visitors Center, Liz will then share a few interesting facts about the plant part used in the cocktail followed by our culinary and cocktail stewards pouring our drink and serving the tasty treat. The fee of $25 includes 1 cocktail and 1 tasty treat. Additional drinks may be available for purchase.
