Shake Up Your Next Girls Night The Park Wine & Spirits

A local gem offering more than what is on the shelves.

The PARK Wine & Spirits, at 11410 Via Varra in Broomfield, has made its mark since its doors opened in May of 2020. You’ll find a selection of both local libations and brands that even out-of-towners will recognize. The shop also features a beautifully built tasting bar that serves up beer, wine & spirits samples from 4-7pm on Thursdays and Fridays.

Owner Mari Ann James has shared a classic cocktail recipe (with a few variations!) that is just as light and refreshing as our Colorado sunshine.

The PARK Mule

Felene Coconut-Lime flavored vodka


Ginger beer (Mari Ann’s go-to is Cock & Bull for its strong ginger flavor, but you also can’t go wrong with the Fever Tree or Goslings brands!)

Fresh lime


  1. Fill copper mug with ice, then add 2 oz. vodka

  2. Top with ginger beer and squeeze in half of a lime. Go ahead and toss that lime right into your mug!

  3. Enjoy and unwind

Mule variations

The copper mug is a must, as it increases the carbonation from the ginger beer, and boosts both aroma and the flavor profile from the vodka or spirit substitute

  • Mexican mule: sub vodka for tequila

  • Kentucky mule: use your favorite bourbon instead of vodka

  • Gin-gin mule: muddle a few mint leaves with simple syrup at the bottom; sub vodka with gin

  • Mocktail mule: just as delicious without the added spirits

The PARK Wine & Spirits has a welcoming atmosphere and staff in place to help enhance your experience. Mari Ann and her husband, Vince, have a great set of team members who will always greet you at the door and are happy to help make recommendations. Taylor, the James’ Sheepadoodle, can often be found doing quality control and brightening his patrons’ days. Taylor is the official PARK Wine & Spirits shop dog and HDIC- Head Dog in Charge.

“Vince and I are so proud to be part of Broomfield, and grateful that we are able to live and do what we enjoy in this great community that we are fortunate enough to call home,” James says. “We look forward to helping others make memories as we provide the libations for many joyous occasions. Cheers!”
