By Dana Eastland. CUESA’s seasonal cocktail fest is back, this time with Winter Cocktails of the Farmers Market on Wednesday January 27th. From 5:30pm-8pm, the Ferry Building will be filled with bartenders offering their take on the art of the modern drink, with beverages inspired by modern art. The evening is a partnership with SFMOMA, which is reopening the spring, and includes plenty of cocktails, bites, and fun.

Thirteen bartenders from all over the city will participate, including Crystal Chasse (Blackbird, Dirty Habit), Megan Daniel and Alex Smith (Whitechapel), and Jack Bates (Alamo Drafthouse), with cocktails made from spirits sponsors including Disaronno, Heaven Hill PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur, and Rémy Martin. And of course, all the drinks will feature seasonal produce from CUESA’s farmers’ market.

There will also be chefs from local restaurants serving appetizer bites, including Ryan Shelton (Reverb Kitchen & Bar), David Murphy (Whitechapel), and David Bazirgan (Dirty Habit). Tickets are $60 per person and include three full-size cocktails, unlimited sample-size drinks, and tickets to try the bites. You can also purchase a “season ticket” to all of the three upcoming cocktail events for $150. Ferry Building Grand Hall, Embarcadero at Market.
