Nine bartenders from around the city will compete to make the best cocktail using a trio of gourmet ingredients from Louisiana Sisters in a free event with live music Wednesday evening at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, and the audience will get to help choose the winner.
The competitors will make a cocktail using one of three Louisiana Sisters products, an all-natural Bloody Mary mix, spiced olives, and pepper jelly, and alcohol provided by Donner-Peltier Distillers and Cathead Vodka.
Four local celebrities will judge the drinks on smell, taste, appeal and presentation. The public’s votes will contribute to the final vote.
The winner will receive a year’s supply of Louisiana Sisters products, $150 from Donner-Peltier Distillers, two tickets to Gambit’s Food Revue, Tales of the Cocktail lagniappe, and a Yelp! trophy.
So Long Storyland and The Breton Sound will perform during the event, which will be held at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 4. It is free and open to the public.
