T3 Cocktail Recipes

Here are Thoma’s favorite cocktails that frequent T3, or Thoma Thirsty Thursdays. It’s a monthly event that’s an integral part of our company culture which allows our staff to step away from their desks and hang out together with a nice drink and maybe a cheese plate or two.

Scroll down below for our favorite cocktail recipes you can use for your own version of T3. We also have non-alcoholic “mocktail” versions for a few recipes as well.

Pink Beer Punch

You will need:

  • 6 pack of beer
