Aspen, CO, Colorado
ASPEN – A contest at The Little Nell asks which local bartender has the skills to be “Aspen’s Iron Bartender.”
Beginning Feb. 12, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. every Sunday in the Terrace Bar at The Little Nell, two of the town’s leading bartenders will square off in a round-robin competition to determine whose cocktail reigns supreme.
The drink gurus will show their stuff, using Grand Marnier as an element. Each guest will get one vote with the purchase of a featured cocktail. The bartender with the most votes at the end of the night moves to the next round.
The contest will continue through March, culminating in a March 26 throwdown, with the ultimate victor winning the crown and a trip to New Orleans to party with some of America’s greatest cocktail creators.
For more information on the competition and to find out more about the bartenders involved, visit The Little Nell on Facebook.
