Cocktails in the Garden Kicks Off May 3

The Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Cocktails in the Garden kicks off its 2012 season tonight.

Now in its 10th year, Cocktails in the Garden is the most beautiful cocktail party in the city. Mix and mingle with Atlantans every Thursday night as you stroll through the gardens with a drink in hand.

From 6pm to 10pm each week there will be chef demonstrations in the Edible Garden, a DJ spinning music, cultural performances and cash bars.

Each month Cocktails in the Garden has a different theme that pairs a specialty cocktail with a plant or garden feature. May’s theme is Azaleas and Aviations.

Admission to Cocktails in the Garden is $18.95 for adults, which includes one complimentary cocktail. Members are free.

Cocktails in the Garden at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Thursdays from 6pm to 10pm, May through September. 1345 Piedmont Avenue Northeast, Atlanta.
