SAN ANTONIO, TX (October 24, 2017) - San Antonio Cocktail Conference is back for its seventh year with exciting new events and friendly familiar favorites. The conference runs January 10-14, 2018, and tickets go on sale November 1, with an incredible blowout party on the rooftop of the St. Anthony Hotel.

This year's Signature Cocktail, the Tio Mio, is a playful twist on an "old fashioned" favorite. As San Antonio celebrates its 300t h birthday, this Herradura Anejo cocktail pays homage to the city's rich history, and adds a twist of something new. Like a visit with an old friend, it is familiar and welcoming, but still full of new stories to tell.

In addition to favorite events like Opening Night at the DoSeum and more than 40 seminars for cocktail novice and professionals alike, guests can look forward to new events like Cocktails Under the Sea on Saturday night, January 13. This headlining event will transport guests to an ‘underwater’ experience, complete with cocktails, cuisine, music and all the outstanding — and outlandish — activities that the spirit brands bring to San Antonio each year. Don’t be surprised to see things ‘floating’ past as you drink and dine at this new event.

Another notable change is SACC Tasting Suites - now taking place at the beautiful and historic St. Anthony Hotel, also home to Friday night’s Waldorf on the Prairie. Moving through a series of small ballrooms and private suites, the Tasting Suites are certain to be an even more elevated approach to the conversation that takes place at this event.

San Antonio Cocktail Conference has been named “one of the best” by publications like Fodor’s Travel and called “the future of cocktails” by Paste Magazine. Each year this cocktail festival brings together top bartenders and cocktail enthusiasts for educational seminars, guided tastings and cocktail parties. Founded by Bohanan’s Prime Steaks & Seafood and presented by Houston Street Charities, the San Antonio Cocktail Conference celebrates the craft cocktail and the experience that surrounds it, while engaging the community in supporting children’s charities. Once again the

conference will donate 100 percent of its profits to benefit children’s causes. Past years' beneficiaries include Children's Shelter, ChildSafe, Clarity Child Guidance Center, HeartGift San Antonio, TEAMability and Transplants for Children.
