Help Send a Milwaukee Bartender to Tales of the Cocktail
If you haven't noticed, Milwaukee is becoming increasingly known in the national craft cocktail scene. Bartenders like Mathias Simonis, Katie Rose, Daniel Dufek, and Chad Doll are consistently winning national cocktail competitions, bringing great exposure to our fair city.
This year at Tales of the Cocktail, an annual cocktail extravaganza held in New Orleans, Milwaukee will be sending three bartenders to compete against some of the best mixologists in the world. With your help, we can make it four.
Emily Evans, an up and coming bartender from Bryant's Cocktail Lounge, is one of the top 25 finalists in the Russian Standard "Emotion in a Glass" competition. As part of this competition, people are asked to vote on Facebook for their favorite cocktail.
Currently, Emily is in third place, but it is completely possible for her to move in to first place. Want to help? Simply follow the link below and vote for Emily's cocktail "Anticipation". Hurry the deadline for voting is June 4th!
Don't feel right voting for a cocktail you haven't tried? No Problem, you can make it at home or stop by Bryant's Cocktail Lounge Thursday between 8PM and 1AM to have Emily make you one of these amazing cocktails. I think you will agree, it is well worth the win!
