Afternoon plans are on the rocks this Saturday, February 27, for those muddling in cocktail mode at the Decatur Stirs Craft Cocktail Experience 2016. Drink in cocktail crafting know-how from local spirit experts and bartenders while sipping and swirling through a showcase of 100 craft spirits, syrups, bitters and new cocktail products at the 2-5 p.m. event spilling through the Courtyard by Marriott Decatur Downtown and Decatur Conference Center. There’s more to crafting cocktails than meets the highball. Bellina Alimentari bar manager Corey Phillips adds Italian flair to the afternoon’s cocktail repertoire by mixing apertivo-worthy sippers with Cynar, Cynar 70 and Aperol. Stop by and absorb some ideas for throwing your own Italian happy hour! Purchase tickets online, $50 each. Limited to ages 21 and over only.
