Go behind the bar and into the minds of top beverage talent in this series of intimate and interactive tasting and technique learning experiences.

Presented by Elemental Spirits Co.

This intimate event provides a limited number of guests the opportunity to spend the day learning the ropes from the best bar professionals in the business. You will join the likes of Atlanta cocktail darlings and well-respected bar badasses, Kellie Thorn and Keyatta Mincey Parker, as they kick off your morning with tasty no and low ABV cocktails to wet your palate and get you ready for the day ahead. 

We are thrilled to welcome NYC based bartender and philanthropist, Lynette Marrero, widely regarded as one of the pioneering bartenders in the industry Lynnette will take you on a Rum + Confections journey, while El Ponce's Jarina Naone and Orestes Cruz from Tortuga y Changoas delight your palate with Agave-based spirits sure to make your spirits soar. 

Or kick it old school by shaking up retro cocktails with Birmingham's Eric Bennett and the lovely J'nai Williams from New Orleans. Wrap your day in a pretty cocktail bow with a taste through cocktail history with Fords Gin, or end your day by getting fizzy with Lynette Marrero  and Meaghan Dorman (also of NYC fame - we do love us some Northern gals here in the South!).

There's some hard decisions to make here, folks, even though you get to choose three of these exciting opportunities! Choose wisely - it's sure to set your day on the right path. Throughout all of it, we've also brought some of our favorite chefs to the table to pair their tastiest bites with these tantalizing treats.

Come hungry, come thirsty, and maybe come by ride share! This tipsy day is sure to be one you'll be talking about for years to come!
