Remixology @ Drink - 8/22

8/21/2011 09:47:00 PM
Everytime I go to a new cocktail bar, the first thing I order is an old fashioned (rye whiskey, no muddled fruit, just an orange peel).  The correct response (which I've received before from only 2 bars ever) is "that's the only way we make them."  But, I digress.    

Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum is pleased to announce the second Annual Bartender Challenge returning to Boston on August 22. The Appleton Estate Rum Remixology Bartender Challenge is a contest seeking the most creative and passionate bartenders committed to perfecting classic and modern cocktails.

The Remixology Challenge will take place in four U.S. Markets – New York, Boston, San Francisco and Miami. Participants are charged with developing an original Appleton Estate Reserve cocktail made with a harmony of ingredients inspired by their favorite song. Round two will challenge each bartender to create a cocktail based on a well-known movie filmed in their respective city. Each Appleton Estate Reserve cocktail will be judged on taste, originality, presentation, creativity and inspiration from song and movie to cocktail.

Judges include Willy Shine of Contemporary Cocktails, Misty Kalkofen and John Gertsen of Drink Boston, and John Mayer of Craigie on Main (winner of the 2010 Remixology Bartender Challenge
Boston). Below each finalist, their home bar and song choice are listed:
