Fever has a new event in town, and it’s called cocktail experiences. I was hosted at their Little Mermaid Experience, and I’m here to share how it went!
First off, even though they do offer non-alcoholic drinks (we’ll get into that soon), you do have to be 21 and up to attend this event.
This experience is located right across the street from Union Market in Washington, D.C. When we got there, there was a long line outside, waiting to be let in. Everyone was talking about what they think the experience will be like. Some people even had costumes on related to the Little Mermaid theme.
When we got inside, we were in this small room where we had to check in and verify our tickets and ID. This is where we were asked if we wanted to have non-alcoholic drinks, which my mom and I agreed to. They gave us a little table flag that lets the waiters know to serve the non-alcoholic drinks. Once we were all checked in, we stood in front of these cool looking elevator doors that opened up. We were directed inside and the operator told us the backstory of the experience and the rules. Once the doors opened up again, we were led inside an amazingly decorated tunnel that brought us to the dining room.
We were sat on our table which had a pretty glowing shell and a QR code that can be scanned to see the drink menu, and patiently waited for the show to begin. Here’s what was in store for us:
Drink #1: The Enemy’s Anemone (made with vodka, blue curacao, pineapple cordial, and white wine)
- Non-alcoholic version is made with a ritual gin alternative, blue curacao, lemon, pineapple cordial, and chamomile tea
Drink #2: The Wicked Undertow (made with gin, lemon, blackthorn plum, pineapple, and tonic water)
- Non-alcoholic version is made with the ritual gin alternative, lemon, raspberry, pineapple, and tonic water
Drink #3: Pearl of the Sea (made with rum, mango, lemon, ginger, and cinnamon)
- Non-alcoholic version is made with the ritual gin alternative, mango, lemon, ginger, and cinnamon
And can I just say that the presentation of these drinks were a 10/10, one of them even came in a cool looking treasure chest!
The rest of the experience entailed an immersive storyline about a pirate and his tragic love, and the tale of Pearl the mermaid and her journey to get human legs. I won’t spoil the story for you, you’ll just have to check it out for yourself! But I enjoyed this experience and am definitely interested in any future cocktail experiences that Fever has in store.
