There’s no better excuse for a tipple than the Cambridge Cocktail Festival, taking place 26–28 August and promising a three-day extravaganza of music, food and a whole lot of booze.
A partnership between Cambridge Live and La Raza Events, the event takes place at the Corn Exchange, featuring ten cocktail bars (be still, our beating hearts) from local favourites including Novi, La Raza and Ta Bouche, as well as pop-ups from some of the world’s most prestigious drinks brands (think Moët & Chandon and Tanqueray No. Ten).
As well as sampling all manner of expertly made concoctions, guests will be able to get stuck into hands-on cocktail masterclasses and workshops and enjoy impressive bartending demonstrations.
If the mood takes you, you can also have a groove along to tunes provided by Cambridge bands Big 10 and Swagger, as well as Truly Medley Deeply.
Tickets are £4 for each day event (1pm until 7pm) and £10 for evening events (8pm until midnight). Buy yours from the Cambridge Live website.
