First, huge thanks to ALL the competitors and contributors to the 6th annual Faith Middleton Food Schmooze® Martini Competition. More than 30 Connecticut restaurants and bars signed on to compete, and compete they did. Sipping and sampling. . .as we moved from table to table, you made us so proud to live (and eat and drink) in a place that cares so much about craft and innovation when it comes to food and cocktails. Truly, you were all masters.
But, there are always the standouts, and the people of this year’s event have spoken. . .
The Silver Winner – Max Burger – Pow Wow
The Best Craft Cocktail (as awarded by Anthony DeSerio) – Rooster Company – Not Milk
The Best Bubby Martini – Bear’s Smoke House – Fuzzy Honey Bear Bite
The Best Veggie Martini – Rooster Company – Not Milk
The Best Dessert Cocktail – Hidden Still – Rise & Shine
The Best-Looking Cocktail – Tavern 1757 – Lavender Lemon Drop
Finally, we want to thank you, the attendees and our dear listeners! The competition is a fundraiser, after all, and every ticket purchased supports our show and all the programs you hear on WNPR. Thank you!
