It’s going to be quite a show as the Cocktail Society kicks off the Scottsdale Culinary Festival weekend on April 13.

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.

But don’t forget about the food! Sweet and savory bites will be offered, including the dishes from some local favorites:

  • Fogo de Chão – Picanha top sirloin peppadew with sweet piquantepeppers
  • The Canal Club – Cubano tostones made with ham, pork verde, swiss mousse, and chipotle aioli and churro bread pudding with white chocolate anglaise
  • Weft & Warp Art Bar + Kitchen – Sweet and savory popcorn
  • Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar – Adobe pork tacos with pineapple relish, pickled red onion and pineapple salsa
  • Heidi’s Events & Catering – Smoked beef shank carved on site, sliced baguettes and bourbon BBQ sauce
  • Artizen Crafted American Kitchen & Bar – Miso-cured duck legs, lukewarm pistachio polenta, yuzu ginger jam paired with a cocktail
  • Nitro Live Ice Creamery – Mojito, prickly pear margarita and chocolate Amaretto ice cream

Tickets are $85 if you buy ahead of time and $100 at the door. The tickets for the 21-and-over event include all food, drinks and entertainment.
