EventsSpirits

2013 Luxardo Cocktail Cup

Below are the Semi-Finalists of the 2013 Luxardo Cocktail Cup. Over the next two and a half weeks our local market judges will travel to each Semi-Finalist’s bar to try their original Luxardo creation. They will ultimately decide on one cocktail to represent each market in San Francisco at the finals this October. It was painfully difficult reducing the many entries we received to what you see below and it will be even more difficult narrowing these down to just seven cocktails.

In the coming days we will post all of their recipes.

On behalf of Luxardo, Anchor Distilling, and Mutineer Magazine, thank you to all that entered and congrats to those mentioned below.

Chatting with Chris Tucker, Beverage Director of Sacramento’s Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co. on Midtown Cocktail Week

Spirits

Hook & Ladder Sacramento

1) Mutineer Magazine: How has the Sacramento cocktail scene changed over the last few years?
Chris Tucker: Starting in about 2007-08, the cocktail scene in the Sacramento area was just getting its footing with 4-5 bars featuring handcrafted cocktails and fresh squeezed juices. Since the first Midtown Cocktail Week in 2008, the number of craft cocktail bars has tripled, if not quadrupled, in just the midtown/downtown area alone, with area restaurants also realizing the need for improved cocktail lists and an increase in overall skills/knowledge for the bar staff.

2) What excited you about in terms of how it has developed and where it is going?
Last year, Sacramento established its own USBG Chapter. With now over 50+ active members, you can walk into most bars and restaurants in Sacramento and find people behind the bar with either renewed or newly found passion and applying that to some delicious libations. This is particularly true of the downtown and midtown areas of Sacramento, where MCW and the Sac BG has had its strongest impact. With the influence of MCW and how Sac BG has helped to shape the other 51 weeks of the year, I see outlying areas starting to come into their own. We’ve already seen it in pockets of Roseville, Folsom and now across the river in West Sacramento. See the full post »
