Two featured cocktails will be offered at Ascend from March 1st through March 15th. The two drinks of choice will be “Monkey Business”, which includes Bulleit Bourbon, vermouth, Banana Gifford Liqueur, walnut liqueur and bitters, and “Elixir of Life”, which is made up of Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice, lychee liqueur, aloe liqueur, lemon juice, blueberry tea syrup, cucumber, pea flower, and lavender spray.

Seattle Cocktail Week’s website also features three Ascend cocktails with their recipes that admirers can make from home, including the popular Washingtonian, The 1921, and The Knight Rider.

Additionally, the Ascend Prime team will be hosting a “Zen Bar” at the Cocktail District on March 7th, from 12pm to 4pm. Guests can enjoy pop-up cocktail bars, food, tastings, education, and experiences.

“Zen Bar” is an innovative, engaging presentation inspired by a traditional Zen Garden. Mixologist Chaz Lee will be assembling a complex Hendrick-based cocktail using tea blossoms and other fresh ingredients and complex techniques. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance of the event at Bell Harbor Conference Center.
