Mezcal, Sotol, Bacanora and Tequila

Posted By on Mon, Apr 30, 2012 at 11:00 AM

Hotel Congress is throwing its annual Agave Fest this Friday, May 4, with more than 40 different liquors to sample, $2 street tacos and a performance by the Latin Funk Project. More on all that here.

This year's event will also include an Iron Chef-style bartending competition in which contestants can make any drink they want, except margaritas. There will be plenty of other innovative cocktails to sample as well.

While it's still going on somewhat under the radar, Tucson has a steadily growing cocktail scene that can be glimpsed at events such as this one. It wasn't more than four or five years ago that we had no modern cocktail to speak of and now we have our own chapter of the United States Bartending Guild - which is one of the sponsors of Agave Fest - and restaurants across the city that are steadily raising the ante drink-wise.

Tickets to Friday's event are $25.
