Drink New York City


Manhattan Cocktail Classic

I know this is Drink Music City, but we do like to get out of town every now and then and sample some beverages in other strange, foreign lands. Like Alabama.

I just got back from a trip to the Gulf Shores area for my kid’s Spring Break. It was also Spring Break for a lot of college bros and girls who scream “WOOOOOOOO!” at three in the morning, but that’s another blog. My tropical drink of choice was Cruzan Dark Rum with Pinapple/Mango juice. Why is this significant? I haven’t had rum in years, but I felt obligated, being at the beach. It was delicious.

But I digress. Let me tell you where I want to go next. the third annual Manhattan Cocktail Classic in New York. First, I love New York. Second, it’s a drinking event in Manhattan. What could be better? It’s May 11 – 15 and tickets just went on sale. It’s 10,000 lovers of the booze drinking around six city blocks in Lower Manhattan, with dozens of separate events in some of the greatest bars and restaurants in the world. Sounds like a blast.

Tickets just went on sale. I need to find someone to finance this trip. Hopefully, I’ll see you there.
