The prettiest cocktail party in Atlanta is back this month. Cocktails in the Garden at the Atlanta Botanical Garden begins its 2014 season on Thursday, May 8th.
Every Thursday from 6pm to 10pm, May through September, guests will get to stroll around the garden at dusk while sipping beer, wine and mixed drinks.
There will be live cooking demonstrations and tastings from chefs in the Edible Garden, DJs spinning live music and surprise cultural performances. The Art & Science Café returns every third Thursday, with lively discussions on plants and human health.
Each month’s theme highlights living sculptures in the Imaginary Worlds exhibit. May’s theme is “Earth Goddess, I’ll Have What She’s Having.” You can toast to the larger than life lady with her signature cocktail, The Goddess, made with Absolut Citron, local honey infused with mint, a splash of grenadine and lime juice.
Admission to Cocktails in the Garden is $18.95 for adults and free for garden members. Guest passes are accepted. Click here for more information.
