The Center for Urban Education About Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA) and the Northern California Chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) are hosting an SF Cocktail Week preview party with a farmers market cocktail theme. The evening will highlight the spirits sponsoring SF Cocktail Week, made with summer's best produce.
Guests will enjoy two full-sized signature cocktails made with Oxley Gin and Corzo Tequila, as well as 14 distinct, sample-sized drinks that will combine market ingredients with Belvedere Bloody Mary Vodka, Brugal Rum, Campari, Charbay Tahitian Vanilla Vodka, a variety of Cognacs, Cointreau Orange Liqueur, Hangar One Vodka, Herradura Tequila, The King's Ginger Liqueur, Michael Collins 10 Year Old Single Malt, No. 209 Gin, St. George Spirits' Gin, Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur and Templeton Rye Whiskey. Attendees are able to connect with over 20 of the Bay Area's best bartenders who are behind the programs and parties of SF Cocktail Week.
Guests will snack on bites from some of the Bay Area's hottest restaurants and can vote for their favorite drink and hors d'oeuvre. Five winners will be selected to receive advance tickets to SF Cocktail Week events.
