WWJ writes about the sugar house:

Sugar House has your back when it comes to pinpoint renditions of old classics swirled around with modern twists and maybe even a high-speed chase somewhere along the way. The Sugar House makes a mean drink called Cranberry Smash, perfect for getting the Christmas ball rolling. And there is punch – punch served from a punch bow, like a grandma on her sideboard. The spirit of Christmas in the past included Root Beer Egg Nog Punch and talking about an exciting way to end a killer day. Sugar House is also known to serve a large mug of warm apple cider – the perfect way to tackle a chilly winter evening.
