The fifth anniversary edition of the Manhattan Cocktail Classic takes place May 9 through 13, 2014.
The five-day festival will once again include an Opening night Gala at The New York Public Library plus dozens of “spirited events” throughout the city and educational seminars.
For the gala May 9, 2014, the New York Public Library on 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue, New York City, will once again be transformed into one of the world’s largest cocktail extravaganzas. More than 3,000 elegantly-attired guests are expected to participate in the four hour event, sipping some 25,000 hand-crafted cocktails.
The classic includes the creation of the world’s largest hand-muddled Caipirinha to honor the World Cup in Brazil, an exhibition and tasting of 100 small batch artisanal spirits, a local distillery visit and a session pairing chocolate and cocktails. There are a hundred events spread across the five days in three boroughs.
