Klaus & I are heading to Asheville for Cocktail Week in May!!

Asheville is best known as Beer City USA, but there’s also a vibrant mixed drink scene, too. So this spring, the city will host a week-long celebration of mixology and fine craft spirits.  Asheville Cocktail Week May 1-8 features an assorted of mixed drink events, including a Bloody Mary contest, a Cinco de May tequila tasting, a Kentucky Derby party and a spirits dinner. The week is a spin-off from The Asheville Wine and Food Festival.

Tickets are on sale Feb. 15, Kris Kraft, event director, said. Mixed drinks had been a component of the Asheville Wine and Food Festival, but with that element growing, it needed its own event, Kraft said. “We thought it would be best to remove it (from the Wine and Food Festival) altogether and highlight it in way all its own.” Venues include the historic S&W Cafeteria space, Malaprop’s Bookstore, the Smoky Park Supper Club and Ol’ Shakey’s bar. “We will have events in restaurants, event centers, bars, inside and outside,” she said.

Author Warren Bobrow, “The Cocktail Whisperer,” will do a reading and signing at Malaprop’s, the downtown bookstore. 

Book signing with Warren Bobrow, May 5, Malaprop’s. Bobrow has written three books: Apothecary Cocktails: Restorative Drinks from Yesterday and Today (2013), Whiskey Cocktails: Rediscovered Classics and Contemporary Craft Drinks (2014) and Bitters and Shrub Syrup Cocktails: Restorative Vintage Cocktails, Mocktails & Elixirs (2015).
