SOBEWFF: Cocktails, Chrissy Teigen, and Michael Symon at The Q (Recipes)

Moët Hennessy's The Q at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival promises to kick off this year's festivities with style.

Tonight, from 7 to 10 p.m., not only will attendees be able to sample the best barbecue and sides from 40 of the nation's top chefs, but they'll be able to wash it down with cocktails from the Moët Hennessy portfolio, created for the evening by mixologist Jordan Bushell and Belvedere mixologist Claire Smith.

Oh, and did we forget to mention your fabulous hosts for the evening? The Chew co-host Michael Symon will share the spotlight with the gorgeous models who will grace the pages of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. Though we're not sure how many of the bathing beauties will show up to feast on ribs (and be a feast for the eyes), word on the street has it that Chrissy Teigen (who happens to be our New Times cover model, along with chef Symon) will be on hand.
