Hi Friends!
It is festival season and I couldn't be more excited about it. A little over two weeks ago, I attended the 6th Annual Nashville Cocktail Festival in Nashville and I had an amazing time! The Nashville Cocktail Festival is a week long event, this year which was from April 23-28th, with new exciting things going on each day for all the libation lovers. I was able to attend the opening event on the first day and the Polynesian Pop Event on that Saturday which is my absolute favorite of the festival. My husband and I had a great time!

During the first event, my husband and I were able to sample different types of rum and that was an interesting experience! I am a bit of a light weight, so the super aged rum was a bit much for me, but my husband liked it! I thoroughly enjoyed the Polynesian Pop event on that Saturday. It was full of island cocktails and reminded me of being on the beach. I love sweet cocktails, so I got a lot of new recipes I cannot wait to try at home.

The thing I love the most about attending the Nashville Cocktail Festival is how friendly everyone is! Every time I attend the Saturday event, it feels like a family of people having drinks at a barbecue or something. I mean, it probably has a little to do with the libations (haha), but everyone is just in a great mood and having a fun time! Check out some of my favorite pictures from this year's events below.
 Here's the drinks we were able to sample at the first night's event. I can't remember which one was the one that was REALLY strong, but it was one of these.
 I had to get a picture in front of the Nashville Cocktail Festival backdrop!

Now these pictures below are from the Polynesian Pop event!
 I love that they had a 'build your own cocktail' station! So cool!
 A drink in both hands. The way it should be at this festival. :-)
 My favorite drink of the day was from Saltine Nashville! I LOVED it!
 If you haven't tried any Uncle Nearest Whiskey, be sure to pick some up! Great story behind it and it's definitely a whiskey that'll make the hairs on your neck stand up!
 Anyone else a Don Julio tequila girl like me? I love me some tequila! :-)
 They even had a cigar bar set up! My husband loved that part, too.
I have no idea who more than half of the people in this photo are, but it's just what I was telling you before, the vibe is just so friendly and nice!


To sum it all up, The Nashville Cocktail Festival is definitely one you should attend next year! Keep an eye out on their social media for next year's tickets to go on sale. I guarantee you'll have a great time! Have you ever attended any of the Nashville Cocktail Fest events?
Thank you so much for reading! xo
