Everyone is Invited to This Year’s Announcement of the Signature Cocktail of the San Antonio Cocktail Conference
San Antonio Cocktail Conference is set to release its Signature Cocktail for 2018, and this year, everyone is invited. In years past, the SACC Signature Cocktail has been released at an exclusive invite-only event open to just a small group of media contacts. But in anticipation of San Antonio’s big 3-0-0 birthday, this year’s invite is open to the masses.
The official cocktail announcement will be held in collaboration with the World Heritage Festival. SACC plans to unveil its 2018 Signature Cocktail at Entre La Sombra: Life Along the Missions, Opening Reception at Plaza de Armas Gallery, Wednesday, September 6, 6-9pm. The exhibit will showcase the intangible culture of our San Antonio Missions in a tangible way through contemporary artists and the SACC Signature Cocktail. Attendees will be the first to sample what SACC Executive Director, Cathy Siegel, calls “a distinguished twist on a familiar old friend.” San Antonio Cocktail Conference, a Houston Street Charities event, has been hailed as “the future of cocktails,” and one of the “best cocktail festivals” by Fodor’s Travel.
SACC was founded by nationally renowned chef, Mark Bohanan, as a way to leave a lasting legacy for the city of San Antonio, and as a way to give back in a big way to children’s charities. Seven years since the first event, the conference now spans five days in locations throughout the city. SACC has grown to become a resource in the cocktail world for industry professionals and home bartenders alike. And the release of the Signature Cocktail has garnered a cult following that is already grabbing attention months before the conference.
Siegel said this year’s cocktail pays tribute to the history of the city, and it will be popping up at events related to both the World Heritage Festival and SA300 celebrations. The exhibit opening on September 6 is free and open to the public, and it will be the first opportunity to experience the official first sips of this mysterious stranger poised to set the tone of this year’s San Antonio Cocktail Conference.
