Do you love craft cocktails?
Do you love the arts?
Do you believe that art influences life (or at least cocktails)?
Do you love the Utah Opera?
Utah Opera and Salt Lake magazine have brought you: Libretti & Libations!
These beautiful craft cocktails, created by Salt Lake City’s top bartenders, are inspired by the love, scheming, and luxury in Lehar’s The Merry Widow, which is being performed at Capitol Theater from Jan, 16 – 24.
Restaurants like Bodega, BTG Wine Bar, FINCA, Handle, and Op Rockwell, and Pallet are all involved and these establishments are home to some of my favorite bartender friends in the city.
I encourage you to get out and try some of these Opera-inspired cocktails AND be entered to win tickets to see The Merry Widow for yourself! I will be attending on the 22nd, and I can’t wait!
If you get out and try a Libretti & Libations cocktail before the 20th, simply share a photo of your cocktail on Twitter or Instagram with hashtag #UtahOperaSips and be entered to win tickets!
Let me break that down for you:
Step 1: Enjoy a craft cocktail inspired by The Merry Widow
Step 2: Post a pic on Twitter or Instagram with #utahoperasips
Step 3: Hit the next hotspot for another Libretti & Libations cocktail
Can’t make it out for drinks before the 20th?
