San Antonio Cocktail Conference: Signature Cocktail Recipe + Festivities Begin for 2016 Conference

It’s still several months until the big weekend, but the organizers behind the next San Antonio Cocktail Conference are already toasting to another sparkling year.

During a recent celebration, organizers debuted the conference’s signature cocktail: Beso de Agave. According to press information, “agave is known in Mexico as aguamiel, or ‘honey water’. The Aztecs prized the agave as a gift from the gods and used liquid from its core to flavor food and drinks.” We’ll gladly accept that gift come happy hour.
