Socially Superlative was on site for the sneak peek of The Springs newest seasonal venture, Donner & Blitzen’s Reindeer Lounge, their transformation for the holiday season. The space has been completely decked out with digital fireplaces, grandiose Christmas trees, a candy cane wall and lights galore.
But the décor wasn’t the only thing that has changed. The menu has been adjusted to offer holiday favorites like fondue, the Office Party Cookie Plate, Fried S’mores and my favorite holiday party staple, onion dip, chips and veggies in a festive platter.
The fun doesn’t stop there; a plethora of holiday cocktails that will make anyone sluggish the next day has been concocted for the occasion. Case and point, there’s a cocktail called, Nog-Gonna Make it To Work Tomorrow, which is comprised of Egg Nog, Orgeat & Mt. Gay Black Barrel Aged Rum. We also tried the Slushy Frozen Peppermint Bark Latte, which was a refreshing mix of mint and coffee and the hot drinks, Festivus, Mulled Wine, Cognac, Cider and Spices and the Ski Life, Hot Chocolate spiked with Monkey Shoulder Scotch and dressed with Malt and Marshmallows.
Donner & Blitzen’s Reindeer Lounge is a great place to bring friends for photos ops, visitors from out of town or someone you might want to cozy up next to in front of a digital fire. Follow the Reindeer Lounge’s Instagram and website to stay informed of programming that will follow this month, including DJs on the weekends and ugly sweater parties every day of the week. Make it count since the pop up closes December 30th!
