Sacramento Cocktail Week

It has been a busy week for Sacramento’s elite mixologists. With a series of educational classes and a full calendar of custom events, the cocktail enthusiasts have had plenty to see and sip this week. I got a chance to celebrate cocktail week early with a tasting tour of the people and places involved. Here are some of the people and drinks I discovered along the way.

Simple and delicious are the keys to cocktails at Paragary’s.
