Editor’s Note: We’re pleased to share this post from Kristian Jaime of Kristian Jaime Photography. Kristian supplied recap photos from last year’s San Antonio Cocktail Conference and we’re thrilled to have him back again this year sharing photos and a summary of the event.
Although the last shaker has been poured out and the final bracelet has been scanned, the 2016 San Antonio Cocktail Conference (SACC) was a resounding success.
Houston Street Charities, the altruistic beneficiary of the four-day event, once again proved that cocktails for a cause were alive and well in the Alamo City.
This years, the slate of the closing events included the posh “Woldorf on the Prairie” mixer at the city’s St. Anthony’s Hotel, a “Yoga Remedy” to salve the mind and a cigar paring seminar complete with a batch of Rocky Patel Patriot maduro cigars.
Houston Street, the vibrant epicenter of the SACC, was the site for one last stroll as patrons got this year’s official drink, Beso de Agave. To round out the night, 80s cover band The Spazmatics, played into the wee hours for those who wanted to dance the night away and sing at the top of their lungs.
The SACC marks the annual kick-off of a year worth of events for San Antonio foodies and cocktail connoisseurs alike.
