Friday, July 31
Broadcast Live from SGWS Wynwood
Cocktail Cartel is allllll about ‘smuggling hospitality’ - meaning no matter where you go or who you’re with, if the Cartel is around you’re sure to experience their signature five-star hospitality and cocktails! Made up of three of Miami’s most beloved bartenders, Manuel ‘Manny’ Picon, Eddie Fuentes and Hector Acevedo, Cocktail Cartel are joining host, and longtime Festival friend, Gio Gutierrez, for a one-of-a-kind mixology class that’s guaranteed to be electric, eclectic and down-right enticing! Cocktail Cartel’s latest project, Spanglish Craft Cocktail Bar + Kitchen, puts a new nationality on traditional cocktails - imagine what would happen if your favorite old-fashioned, G&T and paloma cocktails had been created in the Caribbean! Adding to the fun, Gutierrez and the Cartel will be joined by JP Calabria, the Sipsmith Gin Brand Ambassador for the East Coast of the U.S.. Calabria, a true GINtusiast, has lived most of his life in London where he acquired extensive experience in all phases of the hospitality industry, and he'll be on-hand to share his vast expertise and love of handcrafted cocktails.
Together, this high-energy quintet is going to teach you how to infuse your favorite libations with the same amount of flavor, color and good vibes that have made them renowned in Miami cocktail circles! Don’t miss this mixology class (broadcast live from SGWS Wynwood) that can’t be beat, with cocktails so good and full of Caribbean swagger that you’ll be speaking Spanglish by the end of the night!
Please note: Cocktails for this class are made with the following base spirits: Basil Hayden®'s Bourbon Whiskey, El Tesoro™ Blanco Tequila and Sipsmith® London Dry Gin. Other modifiers may be required and will be outlined in the recipes.
