On Wednesday August 29th, CUESA’s Seasonal Cocktails of the Farmers’ Market series carries on with Yacht Rock: Summer Cocktails. CUESA and the Northern California chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild have rounded up bartenders from all over the Bay Area. They will be pouring taste-size samples of their finest drinks, all utilizing summer produce. Bartenders include Keli Rivers of Hotsy Totsy, Kimberly Roselle from Flora, Claire Sprouse of Rickhouse, and Josh Trabulsi of Burritt Room. You can see the full list of participants here.

There will also be snacks from 15 Romolo, Grand Café, Burritt Room, and Asian Box. In fitting with the nautical theme, look for rum- and gin-focused drinks. And the best part? There’s a costume contest, sponsored by Epicuring. The theme is nautical, and the prize is unspecified, but rest assured the winner will go home with serious shore cred. The event goes from 5:30pm-8pm, and tickets are $40.
