Rochester Cocktail Revival Returns - 2015


If you haven't noticed yet, all of the social media accounts for Rochester Cocktail Revival have recently come alive with the buzz of this year's event in May. It's hard to sum up something that spans 4 days with over 40 events and seminars, across 17 locations - but that's what Rochester Cocktail Revival is.

Our city is a place of many great things: artisanal foods, beer, cuisines to whet any appetite, incredible music, museums, culture and more... and craft cocktails. Despite what some people may think, cocktails are more than pink cosmos and apple martini's. Head to some of the bars hosting these events and you'll soon have your mind changed. There's truly and art and science behind a great drink.

Rochester Cocktail Revival looks to educate and celebrate. Check out this promo created by Rochester's very own Fish & Crown Creative:

Stefanie is co-Founder and Editor of the Rochesteriat. She may only have a drink every other month or so, but much prefers a good cocktail to any wine or beer, especially beer... ugh. Find her with a camera & phone in hand, taking photos for @theRochesteriat on Instagram and Twitter.
