Upcoming Event: Tales of the Cocktail


If you haven’t already booked your tickets, it’s time to make your plans for this year’s Tales of the Cocktail (July 18-22). For all of you dedicated imbibers, this event is not to be missed. There are loads of great seminars, tastings, tours and parties, and it’s a perfect excuse to soak up some local New Orleans flavor.

Many Imbibe contributors will be presenting and attending, and this year will also bring the first Annual Spirit Awards, which we’re sponsoring and really excited about. Created to recognize people who have helped advance the craft of the cocktail, these awards cover categories like Best Classic Cocktail Bar, Best New Bar, Mixologist/Bartender of the Year, Best New Cocktail/Bartending Book and Best Cocktail Menu. And you can have a say in who gets nominated! Just download and fill out this form and cast your nominations by June 15. Award recipients will be announced at the event on Sunday, July 22, and in an upcoming issue of Imbibe.

Reidel is creating custom glasses for the recipients, which we're excited to see. Of course, nothing beats the recognition, right? :)
