Just when you thought your thirst for summer couldn't be any greater, here's something else to look forward to. From June 7 through 9, your pals over here at The Coast and The Clever Barkeep's Matt Boyle and Jeffrey Van Horne are celebrating our region's cocktail culture with the first ever Drink Atlantic Cocktail Festival. It's a weekend's worth of tastings, industry seminars, special events and some of the world's best drinks.

There's a lot to take in: two nights of spirits tastings, a Barcardi boat party and a seminar on all things punch related, to name a few. Plus we'll get a visit from internationally acclaimed bartender Gn Chan. The NYC-based cocktail star—who went from growing up in a booze-free home in Taiwan to winning the Bacardi Legacy competition in 2016 to taking his soon-to-be bar Double Chicken Please on a cocktail roadtrip—will lead an industry-focused workshop on what he does best. If you haven't heard of him, check out the video below to see Chan in action.

And for all things Drink Atlantic, follow along here or here.
