With Arizona Cocktail Week coming up in just three short days, it can be hard to decide which events to hit up, with so many amazing options available. They have everything from seminars, dinners, take-overs, competitions, markets and more. To potentially help you decide where to spend your time and invest your money, here are the events you’ll find me at:
The Cocktail Carnival is their longest-running event and the kick-off to Arizona Cocktail Week – one you don’t want to miss. Mixologists come from all over the country to showcase the best and most creative, delicious cocktails. Nothing is out of bounds or off limits – how about some boozy caramel corn? An Alice-in-Wonderland themed booth with “Drink Me” tonics? No matter your cocktail or spirit of choice- you’ll definitely find something you love – with over 25 different tables and booths including some “Secret Suites” with attractions and performers galore. A great way to see cocktails at their best with over 25 tables and booths, attractions and performers galore.
Last year, this event sold out and will surely sell out again. Tickets are $40 if purchased in advance or $50 at the door. So, don’t wait!
- These fun and education events span the entire weekend and cover everything from the story of Rum to mastering drink photography. Check out the entire list here: http://arizonacocktailweek.com/seminar-list/
The Sands parking lot at the Hotel Valley Ho has always been a popular destination for their guests, participants, sponsors to congregate between seminars and events. For 2016, they are taking over the entire parking lot and providing a full day’s experience of sampling, demo’s, games and fun.
Tickets are $25 per day or are complimentary with a purchase of another event ticket that day (i.e. seminar, cocktail carnival, top bars, artisanal market, etc.)
