The Magical Farm-To-Bar Cocktail Festival You Can't Miss This Weekend

by Stephanie Maida · August 2, 2019

    Farm-to-table is so 2013. These days, it's all about fresh, sustainable ingredients... muddled into your drinks.

    Secret Summer, the nation's first and only farm-to-bar cocktail festival, returns to New York this weekend, and attendees are in for a boozy, botanical garden party full of magical surprises, live music, delicious bites, and, of course, plenty of adult beverages.

    The 5th annual fete, hosted at Long Island City's rustic, ivy-covered event space, The Foundry, pairs world-quality spirits including Aldez Tequila, The House of Suntory, Westward Whiskey, and Gem & Bolt Mezcal with local, seasonal ingredients from Lani's Farm and Brooklyn Grange Farm, mixers courtesy of The London Essence Co: Fine Mixers From Distilled Essences, and beer from Blue Point Brewing. Line your stomach with snacks from MF Event's sustainable raw bar, Crazy Taco Mex, Cash Only BBQ, Nansense NYC, and Tipsy Scoop.

    And, since this is an earth-friendly event, all straws are provided by HAY! Straws, made from natural wheat stems that are 100% biodegradable. Saving the environment while partying the night away - what better way to spend your Sunday?!
