Guests will be enchanted by aerial and flair bartending, contortionists, balancing acts, a magician and a living art display.

The night will be filled with many creative cocktails, including the Tito’s “Hand-Cranked” Vodka Martini made with liquid nitrogen and shaken by a hand-cranked machine at a high velocit, as well as a completely edible watermelon and tequila drinkable bite.

Guests will also learn how perfume and fine fragrances impact the sense of taste thanks to a SensMood interaction.
