KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If you're having people over this holiday season, you may want to put together some warm, fun drinks for your guests to enjoy. A barista with the  Mid-Continent Public Library visited Fox 4 to show us just how simple drink bars can be to create. She will also be hosting a class next month.

Easy-to-Make Holiday Drinks with Emily Duffey will be held on Saturday, Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. at Mid-Continent Public Library’s Blue Springs South Branch. It’s free to attend, but registration is required at mymcpl.org/holidays. Attendees will leave with recipes to take home.
