Bartender Buddha: The Faith Middleton Food and Booze Schmooze Martini Competition
Bartender Buddha was at The Faith Middleton Food and Booze Schmooze Martini Competition last week. The mixology event was held at Farmington Gardens and featured 37 bartenders from area bars and restaurants. Summer cocktails seemed to be on everyone's mind, as strawberries and mint were dominant ingredients in this years competition. Now in its third year, the Faith Middleton event has become the cocktail party of the summer. For enthusiasts like myself, it's a utopia of overwhelming proportion. How is one to pick the best martini? With so many different flavor profiles, how can there be one winner?
