Aspen, CO (January 21, 2014) -- The Après Ski Cocktail Classic invites you to raise your glass and celebrate with the best of the best in après-ski culture with everything from hot toddies to mountain-top parties, seminars, fireside chats, a Grand Tasting Village and the Great Après-ski Pub Crawl in Aspen Snowmass, Colorado on March 13 – 16, 2014.

Similar to 19th hole in golf, skiers like to unwind by sipping on their preferred libations and sharing stories after hitting the slopes, or après ski – enjoyng drinks and generally socializing post the downhill dash. Back for a second round, the 2014 Après Ski Cocktail Classic will once again bring together brand ambassadors, bartenders, mixologists, chefs, spirit aficionados, and professional tipplers for a four-day event filled with top of class cocktail events, parties, demos, and exclusive dinners.

Locals, visitors and all-around cocktail enthusiasts are welcomed to grab their ski gear and toast together at this year’s Black Diamond-worthy Après Ski Cocktail Classic that will showcase the growing movement of craft cocktails.
