Luxetips Events! 2011 Bombay Sapphire and GQ Magazine United States Bartender’s Guild Bartender Summit
I have learned that sometimes we have to be patient and wait our turn for opportunities. Keep doing good work, work hard and the opportunities always come.
Last week, I attended a very neat event at Vanquish, a new super lounge in Atlanta. The event was sponsored by Bombay Sapphire Gin and GQ Magazine. The 2011 United States Bartender’s Guild Bartender’s Summit is a mixologist competition held in select U.S. cities. The winner in each city competes for “The Best Inspired Mixologist” in the U.S. crown in Las Vegas. The winner of the U.S. competiton will then go on to compete in the World’s Best Mixologist competition in Europe.
Of course there were signature Bombay Sapphire Cocktails, a gorgeous space, beautiful people, and a challenging mixologist competition to see.
The signature drink for the night was a mixture of ginger beer, gin, and mint. I am not a gin drinker at all, but this drink was delicious. I did not taste any gin. It is a great cocktail.
Vanquish is a new loung in midtown Atlanta and the space is beyond beautiful. The decor is very glam and over the top, yet relaxing. It is an awesome space. Check it out!
