Everything from wine to whiskey wanted to be in the newest cocktail creation - Yellow Tail wine, got in on the cocktail competition whirlwind by sponsoring an event, Catdaddy Mountain Moonshine organized a Bar Chef Challenge. This competition title made me laugh, pairing the high-brow title "bar chef" with a commercial bottle calling itself moonshine.
The United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) hosted a margarita competition sponsored by Milagro tequila. Fifteen bartenders from different cities competed. Abigail Gullo, from NYC, may not have been the judges' number one pick, but her lavender margarita won the approval of the crowds for the People's Choice trophy.
