Mark your calendars for an event that's bound to shake up your cocktail game.

The HighWire Cocktail Factory is going down on September 30, from 5 - 8 p.m., and it promises to be an evening of hands-on mixology like you've never seen before.

Your ticket to this one-of-a-kind event will include a tasty Welcome Cocktail and the chance to get creative as you explore four hibachi-style cocktail stations. And what's a solid cocktail without some food to pair with it? Fear not, because Bailey's Artisan Pizza will be on-site, serving up gourmet pizzas that will perfectly complement your crafted libations.

Led by the experienced crew of HighWire bartenders, the Cocktail Factory is basically a self-paced tour through four distinct cocktail stations, each offering a unique experience and a chance to create a cocktail masterpiece all your own.

Tickets are $65 per person. If you're a Tucson Foodie Insider, check the Tucson Foodie App for a special offer.

Cocktail Stations

The Smoked Cocktail Station

At the Smoked Cocktail Station, you'll step into a world of smoky, complex flavors as you start by selecting your preferred base spirit — whether it's bourbon, rye, mezcal, or aged rum — and then dive into the array of bitters, woods, and sugars. With guidance from the experts, you'll craft your own one-of-a-kind smoked cocktail. It's a sensory journey you won't soon forget.

The Contortionist Station

Here, you'll learn the art of one of HighWire's signature cocktails. The best part? You get to choose your cotton candy flavor and pop rocks to infuse a burst of excitement into this martini-style concoction. It's a delicious balancing act of taste and texture.

The Mad Hatter Station

The Mad Hatter Station is where the magic happens. Ever tried an egg white whiskey sour with a twist of magic berry? If not, now's your chance. Learn the secrets of creating this whimsical and flavor-packed cocktail. And yes, adding that optional egg white is highly recommended for an extra layer of delight.

The Create-Your-Own-Cocktail Station

For the adventurous souls and creative spirits, the Create Your Own Cocktail Station is where you can let your imagination run wild. Choose your base spirit and ingredients, and let the mixologist guide you through the process of creating your very own signature cocktail. It's a chance to express your unique taste preferences and become a mixologist in your own right.
