Eight of Sacramento’s best bartenders brought their A-game to Harlow’s Tuesday night for the Midtown Cocktail Week cocktail competition.
The drinks includes riffs on the Negroni, some Tiki-inspired cocktails and one with a touch of molecular gastronomy. At stake: $1,000 and some serious bragging rights.
We’ll have more shortly on the night’s proceedings and some words from this year’s cocktail champion. For now, here are the winners:
1st: Chris Dooley of Ella Dining Room & Bar
2nd: Baron Stelling of Hock Farm
3rd (tie): Alycia Rubio of Grange and Travis Kavanaugh of Shady Lady
