Check out Chicago Mixologists

Cocktail competition season is in high gear, and I wanted to report some of the achievements of the fine mixologists in Chicago. The photos are from the cocktail competition held last night for Right Gin, in their private loft here in Chicago.
  • Charles Joly, of the Drawing Room, won last night's competition, and will be going to San Francisco later this year. He also won $500, for his twist on a classic Julep using Right Gin and a little absinthe. Congrats Charles!
  • DJ Love from Le Bar at the Sofitel, who won the Illinois WCC finals last month, won the silver in the national competition last week. Well done DJ!
I have undoubtedly forgotten to mention something, please chime in on the comment section if you know of one!

Sonja, great info, thanks! I only wish I'd found your site a few days earlier-- just got _back_ from Chicago!

Oh well, more reasons to return soon!
