Buttermilk Channel Barkeeps Go Shaker to Shaker Tonight at Our Cocktail Competition

As promised, the final recipe from the five cocktails that made it through the preliminary round of judging for our Great King Street Cocktail Competition. You might recall we asked local professional mixologists to submit seasonal recipes made with the new Compass Box Scotch blend, which is designed for mixing.

This is the The Scotch Also Rises, from Richard Murphy at Buttermilk Channel. He’ll be competing against his colleague Anthony Sferra, who is making a drink called the Tinderbox; wish them both luck, as the winners are being crowned tonight as competitors make drinks in front of a live panel of judges. Stay tuned for the results right here.
