Now in its fifth year, the San Antonio Cocktail Conference celebrates the craft cocktail and the experience that surrounds it. That experience—beautiful venues, live music, delicious food pairings and more—contributes to San Antonio Cocktail Conference being called “the future of cocktails” by Paste Magazine. This year’s Conference is bigger than ever, but the heart remains the same: once again, SACC will donate 100 percent of its profits to benefit children. With all there is to do this year, it may be hard to choose what to attend! While we think every seminar, tasting and party is one you won’t want to miss, we’ve selected five aspects of SACC to highlight. Here’s what:
Women Shaking It Up
Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016, 7pm
Adding an event to Wednesday night this year only made sense with the growth of the Conference, and what better event than this one? Women Shaking It Up celebrates the women in San Antonio in nontraditional roles. Enjoy some of the best of the best in food and drink from female chefs and bartenders and watch the exclusive premiere of the mini-documentary, “Women of the Cocktail Culture” while celebrating the power of women in San Antonio.
