Trump-inspired tiki drinks and Cosmos on dry ice, step aside. This evening is devoted to the classics. Local bartenders including Alex Daniluk of Ste. Ellie and Jesse Bowen of Occidental will whip up their takes on 100-year-old recipes for this contest–think: Old Fashioneds and Sazeracs alongside obscure picks like the rum-based Mary Pickford or the gin-based Bee’s Knees. Prizes will be awarded for the top three finishers and a people’s choice winner. While you sample the retro sippers and watch the competition, you can also enjoy some fitting live tunes: jazz from local quartet La Pompe.
