MIX IT UP AT COCKTAIL WEEK  — JUNE 8-12, 2020

Cocktail Week is back in 2020!

2019 marked the first annual Cocktail Week — and it was a smashing success! A week long celebration of the Central Oregon cocktail scene, Cocktail Week culminates with the Trailhead Liquor Mixology Showcase and Bartender’s Brawl at the 2020 Bite of Bend. Eight bars and restaurants will each be paired up with one of eight local distilleries to create a unique cocktail featuring the distillery’s spirits. These creations will be made available at the participating establishments for $5 during Cocktail Week and also be featured in The Source Weekly’s Summer Happy Hour Guide.

Check out the 2019 cocktails for a taste of what’s coming in 2020…
