Do your favorite Baxter or Bardstown bartender a favor this holiday season and get them some cold hard cash. It pays their bills better then stories of your college glory days or leaving a crappy tip on a happy hour check! Starting November 19th through December 3rd cast your vote for your favorite bartender’s best holiday inspired bourbon cocktail and win them $500.
Participants competing in Four Roses’ Holiday Bourbon Battle include Asiatique, Avalon, Bearno’s, Boombozz, Flanagan’s, Highland Liquors, Lilly’s, Lynn’s Paradise Café, Monkey Wrench, O’Shea’s Irish Pub, Outlook Inn, Ramsi’s, Seviche, The Bard’s Town and Winston’s. Restaurant and bar guests can vote by texting the name of the restaurant/bar to “22333″… Restaurant winners will be announced the week of December 5. The bartender credited with the recipe of the winning holiday bourbon cocktail will be rewarded with $500 cash, an engraved Four Roses decanter and a plaque for his/her restaurant.
Best of luck to all participating bartenders, especially O’Sheas who won last year with a cocktail called the “Bardstown Rose”. The martini featured Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon, ginger ale, hazelnut and orange liqueur, a dash of cinnamon, rimmed in a martini glass with peppermint and sugar and garnished with an apple slice. YUM!
