Final round of Battle of the Bartenders is tonight at Three Sixty

May 20th 12:05pm, 2013



Are you a vodka fanatic or a vodka skeptic? Whichever side you sit on, Battle of the Bartenders, taking place this evening at Three Sixty rooftop lounge, should interest you. If you snub your nose at vodka, the cocktails being concocted by some talented area bartenders might just change your mind. And if you’re already a vodka die-hard, you’ll be all over those complimentary samples and drink specials featuring Salute American vodka.

Tonight marks the final round of the cocktail contest hosted by the St. Louis-based vodka brand. Over the course of the last few weeks, Salute American has held preliminary rounds, challenging local bartenders to mix a great tasting drink using its vodka with no more than four other ingredients.

The field has been narrowed to eight finalists who will wage war with a glass this evening in hopes of walking away with a $1,000 grand prize. The participants (and their affiliations) are: Andy Brown (Lucas Park Grille), Chantel Davis (Side Pockets), Alli Hull (Sub Zero Vodka Bar), Brandon Love (Three Sixty), Elliott Mellow (BBQ ASAP), Tim Rabior (Salt), Justin Sampson (Boogaloo) and Chris Wheeler (Three Sixty).

A panel of judges, including Sauce’s publisher Allyson Mace, will assess the drinks on taste, presentation and name, which should reflect a Salute American theme.

The event begins at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
