I was honored to have been asked to be one of the judges for this year's "Tales of the Cocktail Foundation's Most Imaginative Bartender" competition presented by @bombaysapphireus for the Portland area. Together with the national brand rep @vision_in_motion I visited 7 different bartenders at their establishments and tried their drinks. I was super impressed and proud of what Portland was able to present for this competition. The results will come out in a few days, but in the meantime I wanted to share their creativity. . This drink was made by @efunke333 at @coquinepdx. The only stirred cocktail I judged for this competition, she got her inspiration from her love of gardening. This is the "See (fig. A)" made with Bombay Sapphire gin, toasted fig leaf cordial, dry vermouth, and an apricot liqueur. This unique gin drink really brought out the herbal and savory notes of the gin and was great to sip on. @tales_of_the_cocktail . . . #totc #totcfoundation #mib #mostimaginativebartender #talesofthecocktail #talesofthecocktailfoundation #Bombay #bombaysapphire #gin #Portland #Oregon #cocktails #cocktail #suescourage #drinks #drink #orgeat #spices #botanicals #thehoxtonportland #tope
