Secret Summer Farm To Bar Festival Fetes The Ultimate Summer Cocktail Gathering
The Farm to glass, or Farm-to Bar movement is leading the entertaining experience. Especially with the rising interest in fresh, seasonally farm ingredients not only in food but in cocktails as well. To celebrate, Secret Summer, a one-of-a-kind farm-to-bar cocktail festival will fete their annual seasonal gathering on August 4 from 3-9 pm at The Foundry in Long Island City. The immersive summer garden party is a seasonal sipper’s haven. It involves sustainable mixology, where peak-seasoned ingredients sourced from local farms are paired with the best quality spirits on the market. Secret Summer also highlights fresh eats, music, art, dance, and an opportunity to celebrate a passion for quality ingredients and experiences.
The festival will showcase cocktails from leading spirit brands including The House of Suntory, Aperol Spritz, Aldez Tequila, Westward Whiskey, Gem & Bolt Mezcal, The Long Drink, Runa, Mr. Black and more. These will pair perfectly with The London Essence Co: Fine Mixers from Distilled Essences, and Blue Point Brewery. For mindful drinkers, KeVita Sparkling Probiotic and Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Co. will also be on hand, serving refreshing beverages, while Polar Seltzer and Harmless Harvest Coconut Water will keep guests hydrated.
Food offerings involve a sustainable raw bar by MF Events, Crazy Taco Mex, Cash Only BBQ and newcomers Nansense NYC and Mama Margarita’s. And for the sweet cravers, Tipsy Scoop will be serving liquor-infused ice cream treats.
This year’s entertainers include High & Mighty Brass Band, DJ Dastan, DJ David Hohme and Mira Fahrenheit. Secret Summer has partnered with LYFT to offer festivalgoers a discounted ride to and from the festival, and this year Empire Cruises is the official SS Party Boat & Ferry that will have a DJ, food and cocktails on board.
