(Scottsdale, Arizona) Tuesday, January 24, 2012:  While much of the country is blanketed in snow, the sun-drenched Grand Canyon State beckons you to warm up and partake in a week-long celebration of the cocktail: the inaugural Arizona Cocktail Week. The Hotel Valley Ho and other Metro Phoenix hotspots will host 7 days of spirited events (Sunday, February 19 to Saturday, February 25), a wide variety of opportunities for cocktail enthusiasts, aspiring mixologists, and industry veterans to learn from celebrated mixers and mingle with fellow tipplers, while sampling the best of Arizona’s burgeoning beverage industry. The retro-hip Valley Ho is the top shelf setting for days 1-3, with national and international bar stars augmenting Arizona’s home-grown talent to offer tastings, competitions, and educational seminars. Whether novice whiskey sipper or hospitality pro, Arizona Cocktail Week has options for everyone 21 and over to indulge in the excitement by attending, participating, or volunteering. Additionally, local restaurants and bars will vicariously join the party by showcasing their best shaken, stirred & smashed concoctions; the website’s “Where to Cocktail” section is updated continually as more venues sign on. Always get your drink on responsibly!
