The San Antonio Cocktail Conference was last week, the 5 days of workshops, events, and parties. The backbone of the event though is giving back to the community. The SACC raises money for Houston Street Charities which donates 100% of the proceeds to children’s charities. This means that in addition to getting to go to some awesome parties you get to give back to the community at the same time!
I got to do SO MUCH at the conference and I still didn’t hit it all ( #SACC2019GOALS ), there were just so many options for events to attend! I did manage to hit up all of the main events, a few workshops and of course and after party or two!
This year I also got the opportunity to speak with two of the amazing ladies from the Twin Liquors team, Sandra Spalding (Director of Marketing) and Jessica Barnard (Wholesale Manager).
Read my interview with the Twin Liquors Team HERE for Sandra’s hostess tips and some upcoming events to look forward to as well!!
Sandra invited me on the Agave Bon Voyage river barge tour where we learned about the’ Art of Agave Spirits’ got to sample and learn about an array of tequilas and mezcals from Joseph Castillo of Kimo Sabe Mezcal (#TrustedFriend) .
It was a very entertaining boat ride particularly when we reached the damn/lock portion of the river and everyone hummed the Jurassic Park theme as the gates opened. *Just FYI if you don’t watch my Instagram Stories you’re missing out on some hilarious shenanigans!
Whether you are a cocktail connoisseur, bar tender, liquor novice, or just want to go have a good time the San Antonio Cocktail Conference provides an opportunity for both learning and entertainment.
