December 1st: Last Slinger Standing Qualifier

With some near misses in the last couple of years at  Arizona Cocktail Week, Las Vegas intends to have a strong presence for 2016. Tuesday, December 1st the Las Vegas qualifier for the upcoming Last Slinger Standing competition was held at Herbs & Rye.

IMG_0018All of the competitors brought their A-games with each heat being head to head format. Every round included a number of possible choices that could be made by the bartender but were held with in the parameters of a base spirit and secret ingredient.  The action was fast, and the competitors were full of inventive uses of ingredients such as Chamomile all of the way to Ballast Point’s Indra Kunindra. IMG_0017
