Win Tickets to the 1st Annual Craft Cocktail Texas Festival

Craft Cocktails Texas is a new 4-day festival designed to celebrate the growing movement toward craft cocktails, artisan spirits and classic techniques being employed at bars and restaurants throughout Texas.

The brainchild of local bartenders and consultants, Nico Ponce (The Instigator) and Brian McCullough (Co-Founder), Craft Cocktails Texas will take place June 14th through the 17th.

Part conference and part cocktail party, Craft Cocktails Texas will feature a variety of educational seminars, spirited tastings, happy hours and competitions, as professionals and enthusiasts alike explore Texas’ craft cocktail scene.

Though based in Dallas, Craft Cocktails Texas will draw participants and attendees from throughout Texas, as well as nationally-recognized spirits brands and industry veterans from around the nation. “Some of the country’s best cocktails are being made right here in Texas,” said Founders Nico Ponce and Brian McCullough. “Through Craft Cocktails Texas, we’re excited to showcase our state’s talented bartenders, while also offering educational resources and networking opportunities to industry professionals and liquor brands.”

 A portion of proceeds from Craft Cocktails Texas will benefit the Youth Foundation of the American Heart Association and the North Texas Chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild. For more information, to review the full list of events and to purchase tickets, please visit
