Get steamy at Hotboozapalooza, an anti-mulled-wine party dedicated to hot cocktails

Laura Richards

Hotboozapalooza is back (and it’s a guaranteed mouthful)! Time Out’s very own anti-mulled-wine party is making a return for its second year of steamy festivities, on Wednesday December 12 at Hackney’s Night Tales.

In case you’re unacquainted with the concept, the one-night boozy bonanza – in partnership with William Grant & Sons and their premium spirits – sees four warmed-up twists on the cocktail classics and imaginative original drinks served steaming straight to your cup and included in the price of a £20 ticket. Feast your eyes on the full boozy line-up below.

Enjoy all four of these hot boozy bevvies in the comfort of Night Tales’ party-ready rail arches and outdoor spaces, and to a soundtrack of solid gold grooves. There’ll be stomach-lining grub from Japanese izakaya Fat Baby and pizza spinners Sons of Slice, and cold drinks (with ice, and everything) from the Night Tales bar. And don’t miss immersive experiences from our partners Glenfiddich, Hendrick’s, Monkey Shoulder and Reyka. It’s time to get into the festive spirit – quite literally. Down with mulled wine; it’s hot cocktail time.                    

Hotboozapalooza takes place on Wednesday December 12, 6pm-midnight. Tickets cost £20 per person and include entry and four hot cocktails.
