Brian passed me this link to alert everyone of the impending NYC Bar and Wine Show, occurring Sunday June 20 – Monday June 21, from noon to 6pm. It’s a great even for anyone in the food and beverage industry so if you have the time, I suggest adding it to your calendar.
Last year’s Bar and Wine event was a huge success, with plenty of submissions to the annual cocktail contest. Which drink had the cajones to win in 2009? Make it and taste it yourself! Recipe for the winning cocktail follows:
Recipe is from The Bar and Wine Show website.
2 oz IS vodka
Fresh, pitted bing cherries
Fresh lime juice
Lime slice, for garnish
Fresh mint leaf, for garnish
Pitted bing cherry, for garnish
Muddle cherries, mint and simple syrup in a shaker until dissolved. Add ice, vodka and lime juice, then shake until mixed thoroughly. Pour everything over ice into a rocks glass (or highball glass, as is pictured here) and garnish with lime slice, mint leaf and bing cherry. Enjoy.
