What is Invasion Cocktail?

Back for the 8th edition, the Invasion Cocktail festival will take place in nearly 20 bars and restaurants in Montreal and Quebec this year. In total, more than 150 cocktails will be concocted by the best bartenders in Quebec and presented throughout the week in the best cocktail addresses on the Quebec scene. Also, don’t miss our events throughout the week!

The goal

Showcase exclusive cocktail creations that will be presented only on an ephemeral basis throughout the week, and thus, showcase brands of spirits and establishments. Invasion Cocktail also aims to promote education among industry professionals with the Journées Pro, a program of seminars given by the big names in international mixology.
