Shaken or Stirred? Try Both at Mixology Boca

James Bond’s martini order may be a living legend, but it’s time for you to discover your own favorite cocktail.

At the third annual Mixology Boca, guests are invited to experience a maze of cocktail booths to sample high quality spirits, unveil the science of mixology, and learn about the distilling process. Set for March 16, 2018, the event brings together a high caliber of 30 local and national spirits brands, the likes of Koloa Rum, Prescribed Spirits, Carpano Bay, Templeton Rye, Don Ramon, Zaya, and many more. Hosted again at Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton, tickets, which include food and drink, are $65 and can be purchased here. Guests must be 21 and older to attend.

Not only can you indulge in artfully crafted libations, local restaurants will also be strutting their stuff and presenting their best dishes. Be sure to visit Ruth’s Chris, Harvest Seasonal, Local Greens, Ouzo Bay, and other restaurant booths. Plus, a dance floor will be awaiting your best moves (don’t let your inner voice tell you no!) to music provided by a DJ and live entertainment.

The best part? The ticket you buy for an evening of fun will benefit United Community Options of South Florida (formerly United Cerebral Palsy).

Boca Raton magazine partnered with the Republic National Distributing Company to make this event possible.

In the meantime, we got a sneak-peek of two unique cocktails to try at home before the big day. See how your creation stacks up against the pros!
