3 Best Things to Eat and Drink This Weekend in Metro Phoenix

Chandler Craft Spirits Festival Saturday, April 25

A two-component well drink is a simple, beautiful thing. But a craft cocktail -- shaken, stirred, muddled, and mashed -- is an event in a glass. You can celebrate the art of the cocktail this Saturday evening from 5 to 9 p.m. in downtown Chandler at the Chandler Craft Spirits Festival, the ultimate craft cocktail event. Distributors for Arizona's top distilleries including Arizona Distilling Co., regional micro-distillers, and some of the nation's biggest spirit companies will come together for the second annual festival. The event will also feature a seminar from Arizona Cocktail Hour's Eddy Garcia and top local mixologists; food from Social Box, SanTan Brewing Company, San Marcos, and Caketini; and more than 50 different craft cocktails. For those imbibing, tickets are $40 and include 15 drink tickets. Designated drivers can purchase admission tickets for just $10.
