Following successful stops in Vancouver and Buenos Aires, Tales of the Cocktail® on Tour is taking its show on the road once again, this time to one of the largest and most culturally rich cities in the world: Mexico City. This three-day festival will feature renowned bartenders sharing their insights at a series of educational seminars by day as we dive into Mexico City’s rising cocktail scene by night. Join us in Mexico City in Spring 2015 to get a taste of what Tales of the Cocktail® is all about in a city you’ll never forget.

For the attention of odd ladies & fine fellows:

Most of us have sat at a bar and enjoyed a craft cocktail, in Mexico City or beyond, but have we really made the most of that moment.  Have we let the rhythm rock us, the motion guide us, the aromas tickle our nose and the music move us?  Have we seen things that generally go unseen?  Do the rewarding moments of an after work cocktail at dusk impact us in the same way as a magical midnight martini might?  Do our co pleasure seekers in the bar release their hopes and dreams into our glass?  Is the bartender conducting a symphony of experience right in front us just without philharmonics?

These quandaries and much more will be answered by the stewards of Hendrick’s Gin, Mexico’s own Joseph Mortera, the eagle Jim Ryan and globetrotting Ambassador to the planet David Piper.

Join us to learn more about gin, the cocktails that still give gin butterflies, bar technique, small talk, botanicals and bar flies, copper pot stills, historical chit chat and the art of being a more inspired bartender.

If you prefer a hum drum path through life, this may not be the seminar for you.
