Four exclusive at-home cocktail masterclasses and food pairings

The perfect party at‑home

We know the holiday season might not feel the same this year and so to help get you into the festive spirit, we have curated a series of delicious at-home experiences exclusively for American Express® Gold Cardmembers.
Join us for Festive Spirits: four evenings of cocktail masterclasses and food pairings. From rarebit to smoked salmon and caviar to a taco fiesta, tantalise your tastebuds and eat, drink and be merry, this festive season.

Each evening includes three cocktails and three food pairings per person. Prepare your own canapés and pairings with a specially designed recording, before joining an exclusive cocktail live-streamed masterclass 'live', hosted by a leading mixologist.
