Last night at the Bent Taco, spirits were high and flowing nicely at the Collingwood Whisky Whiskylicious Bartender Competition.
Five courageous and talented bartenders from local venues performed their cocktail making skills in front of a packed house at Collingwood’s Bent Taco. It was fascinating! Each competitor was challenged to make both a featured Whiskylicious cocktail and one of their own creations.
Cassie MacKell from Bent Taco may have had home venue advantage but she also executed the menu drink perfectly and her “Collingwood Derby” was not only a clever nod to Collingwood Whisky but also to makers Brown Forman’s connection to the classic Mint Julep of the Kentucky Derby
We chatted with Cassie this morning!
