Mommy Juice: Ranking Recap of “Hang at the Hangar with Mystic Mountain Tour!”

Here at Jelly Bean Journals, we honor our very purpose as a blog by celebrating all things sweet and sour about mommyhood. We openly and honestly talk about the good, bad, beautiful, and challenging things we have experienced being mommies. Being a mom also means finding other moms to lean on for support, sisterhood, and fun! Thus, enter our ongoing Mommy Juice Series and a recent night out with 39 awesome friends! Scroll down to check out details about this event and the drinks we tried. At the very end of this post you will find out what our participants had to say.

We took a lighthearted approach in creating our Mommy Juice series. Along with loving the term, we hope this group of posts will help fellow moms to sit back, unwind, and enjoy a cocktail. We have a deep love for mocktails, as well, so this series is sure to have something for everyone. After all, we absolutely love enjoying a favorite drink with a great friend. So, here’s to you, girl! Cheers!

Today’s Mommy Juice Pick: Mystic Mountain Distillery Spirits

The Recipe: 5 Different Mixed Cocktails

Why We Picked This Mix: After we posted our two self proclaimed Bloody Mary Tours through Casper, we continued to hear from our besties about letting them join in on our fun. So, we got to planning and decided to open a Margarita Tour for some of our closest friends.  Before we knew it, around 50 people signed up for our event, many of whom we’d never met!  We had an awesome turnout and an amazing time on our Mommy Juice Margarita Tour and our series of Mommy Juice events continued to build!

For this most recent tour we were lucky enough to have a long-time friend offer to sponsor our entire tour with spirits from his Colorado based distillery. Jonathan claims Wyoming as his home state and he is proud to bring his outstanding Mystic Mountain Moonshine, Vodka, and Whiskey to our market. He graciously provided 5 mixed drinks, and a few extra shots, to our Mommy Juice friends. He made sure there was NO shortage of libations and we had a total blast learning about his mixes and tasting all of his cocktails.

We loved our night out and enjoyed awesome mixed drinks while meeting new friends and spending time with already familiar ones! Being a mommy wasn’t a requirement, and the evening included great company, five drinks, pizza, salad, live music, a ranking card to provide feedback on drinks, entry to win prizes, and transportation! Our attendees loved having their night planned for them so that they were only responsible for showing up and having fun.

We ended up with some INCREDIBLE sponsors for this tour! They all went ABOVE and BEYOND for our group! The Hangar in Barn Nunn, WY provided a private room with amazing food and attentive wait staff. They also gave away $100 worth of gift card prizes! We played 4 rounds of “Heads or Tails” and the winner of each received a certificate.

Mystic Mountain Distillery provided our drinks for the night and we had the personal attention of the owner, Jonathon, all evening. Casper Executive Car and Limo provided safe transportation for our Mommy Juice friends to and from the event, which came in especially handy at the end of a 5 drink tour! We rounded out the tour with tunes from Ten Ton Cadillac, a local band with a big sound that had people dancing through the night.
