Mix Produce with Booze and What Do You Get? CUESA's Spring Cocktail Party

Beretta's Gabriel Lowe at a 2009 CUESA cocktail fest.
​On Wednesday, CUESA and the San Francisco branch of the United States Bartenders' Guild will be transforming the front arcade of the Ferry Building into a cocktail party with some of the city's leading bartenders and chefs.

Eleven local bartenders will be serving 10 different cocktails using local farmers' market produce that celebrates spring bounty, ranging from cherries, strawberries, and citrus to rhubarb, pea pods, herbs, and radishes.

At $30 it's an amazingly approachable event, considering the quality and variety of goodies available to taste. List of participants and ticketing details after the jump.
