Party Prep!

We hope the following activities set the mood and help you get excited for the on-campus festivities to come!


White Squirrel


  • 2 parts gin
  • 1 part creme de cacao
  • 1 part sweet cream


Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with a sprinkle of nutmeg (what squirrel wouldn't want a little nuttiness?)

Purple & Gold Forever


  • 6 whole blackberries
  • 3/4 part simple syrup
  • 1 1/2 parts vodka
  • 3/4 part lemon juice


Muddle the blackberries and simple syrup at the bottom of a short glass. Add the vodka and lemon juice, and fill halfway with crushed ice. Using a bar spoon or swizzle stick, twist the tool gently with your hands to stir the drink, taking care not to disturb the blackberry bits at the bottom of the glass. Top with more ice, and garnish with fresh blackberries and a lemon wheel.
