The second annual San Antonio Cocktail Conference aims to bring together spirits enthusiasts and industry experts alike for cocktail education, tasting events, competitions and more, all celebrating the art of the cocktail. The 2013 conference will take place Jan. 17-23.
San Antonio's conference is the only one of its kind in Texas and is quickly becoming noted as one of the major cocktail events in the nation. Top mixologists offer full days of seminars that appeal to cocktail beginners and aficionados alike. Evening events range from cocktail and chef tastings to famed barkeep Sasha Petraske's Skills Competition. On Friday evening, attendees can head from one event to the next on the River Walk in river cruisers and savor downtown with an evening tiki party at El Tropicano Hotel and events at Luke San Antonio, SoHo Bar and The Esquire Tavern.
The San Antonio Cocktail Conference is a charitable event; all proceeds benefit HeartGift San Antonio, a non-profit organization that provides life-saving heart surgery to children from countries where necessary care is unavailable to them.
