Arizona Cocktail Week 2014 Kicks off with a Cocktail Carnival

1 of 35
Arizona Cocktail Week came into full-swing Saturday night with Cocktail Carnival 2014. Hundreds of guests sampled a variety of spirits and mixed drinks poolside at Hotel Valley Ho while cirque du soleil-esque performers entertained them with acrobatics, aerial routines, and fire dancing. While the setting and entertainment were eye-catching, the real stars of the show were the cocktails, which were everything from fruity to spicy, biting to flowery.
