Join us at Hotboozapalooza: Time Out’s anti-mulled wine fest dedicated to hot cocktails

Laura Richards

Down with mulled wine; it’s hot cocktail time! Because Time Out is hosting its very own festival of hot cocktails set in Flat Iron Square’s pop-up ski chalet, Après London. Join us on Thursday December 7 for Hotboozapalooza, a night of cockle-rocking tipples in SE1 curated by Time Out's Drinks Editor (yours truly!). 

This anti-mulled wine event sees five wildly original cocktail creations served steaming straight to your cup – from warmed-up twists on the cocktail classics to potent winter punches and cheeky hot toddies. Here’s the full boozy line-up: 

Hot G&Tea

Portobello Road Gin, Yorkshire tea, Earl Grey tea, sugar syrup, whipped cream, nutmeg, mistletoe dust

Enjoy all five of these hot boozy bevvies (included in the price of a ticket) in the comfort of Flat Iron Square’s chalet – a grand outdoor lodge with an après-ski theme – to a soundtrack of solid gold grooves. There’ll be stomach-lining grub from Flat Iron Square’s popular food vendors and cold drinks (with ice, and everything) from the chalet bar. It’s time to get into the festive spirit – quite literally.         

Hotboozapalooza takes place on Thursday December 7, with two sessions at 5.30-8pm and 9-11.30pm respectively. Tickets cost £20 per person and include entry and five hot cocktails.
