Local bartenders have been duking it out at The Little Nell each week this spring to see who makes the best cocktail in Aspen.

On April 7, we’ll find out whose cocktail reigns supreme. The winner will get a trip to New Orleans for Tales of the Cocktail, the world’s premier cocktail festival bringing together the most respected minds on mixology for five days of cocktails, cuisine and culture.  

Because the semifinals BOTH ended in a tie (the vote was split between the judges’ and the people’s votes), we have four contestants who will meet Sunday on the Ajax Tavern patio from 5-6:30. DJ Dylan will be spinning, and you’ll be drinking/voting on your favorite.

The Details

WHO – Shaine Hartman – element 47; Ryan Sterling – JBAR (Hotel Jerome); Kayla Feld – Jimmy’s; Nick Morrison – Steakhouse 316

WHEN – Sunday, April 7, 5-6:30 p.m.

WHAT – A Grand Marnier-inspired cocktail

WHY – To have some tasty cocktails and cheer on your favorite

JUDGING – Judges will taste to determine the winner of the grand prize. The People will determine the winner of the 2nd place gift certificate for $200 to element 47 at The Little Nell.
