There’s nothing like a signature cocktail at the end of a valiant ski day but how about celebrating the cocktail rather than the skiing? The Annual Apres Ski Cocktail Classic
in Aspen, Colo., this weekend invites you to raise your glass and recognize the slope-side activity that put Aspen on the map.
Referred to as the Food & Wine Festival of the mixology world, more than 1,600 participants enjoyed libations at the 2013 inaugural event.
Top-shelf premium spirits, artisanal craft cocktails, world-class seminars by award-winning mixologists and world-class tipplers coordinate snow parties, pop-up bars, demonstrations, fireside chats, cocktail-paired dinners, special mountain events through tomorrow March 16, 2014.
The bars at the base are like the 19th hole in golf. We share stories, laughs and connections that solidify our mountain experience. Everyone is invited to the annual Classic for one of the best moments of all; but hurry. The event ends tomorrow with the The Great Apres-Ski Cocktail Classic Pub Crawl. Select venues in Aspen compete for bragging rights for this year’s “Best Après Ski Cocktail.” Your $30 ticket gets you your credential, wristband, and the signature cocktail at each venue. The list includes Jimmy’s Restaurant, Justice Snow’s, J Bar @ Hotel Jerome, Chef’s Club @ St. Regis, Chair 9 @ Little Nell, and 39 Degrees at Sky Hotel.
Today check out the Slopeside Grand Tasting Village at the VUE deck in Westin Snowmass Resort. Sample slopeside through a treasure trove of premium spirits, cocktails and toddies. 3- 6 p.m.
