Midtown Cocktail Week


I’ve always been a Cosmopolitan girl, myself.

There’s something incredibly classy and chic about a pink drink rimmed with sugar and garnished with a lime. It screams super sassy and lover of summer.

This week  is Midtown Cocktail Week in Sacramento, an entire seven days dedicated to your favorite gin and tonic. Sponsored and hosted by a variety of Midtown restaurants and bars, this series of events and classes is dedicated to celebrating the diverse mixology that Sacramento offers, as well as educating bartenders about the best way to shake their martinis.

Midtown Cocktail Week kicks off with a Punch Bowl Bunco Party, a special event devoted to making the quintessential party punch bowl concoction – both with and without alcohol. Some special events (including this one) require pre-registration, so be sure and get your name on the list early.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday include workshops and events such as a Bartender Mixology Competition, a gin-making class titled “Hello Gin! Where Have You Been?” and a Cuban-themed cocktail celebration at Zocalo.

Friday night jump starts the weekend with The Greatest Cocktail on Earth event that will turn the Citizen Hotel Ballroom into a circus. Saturday and Sunday wrap up the week of festivities with The Science of Food and Drink mixology lesson, followed by a tropical luau.

So, whether you’re a Cosmo girl like me or a guy that likes his martini extra dry and shaken not stirred, there’s something for everyone at Midtown Cocktail Week.
