If you are an advocate for sustainable practices, you’ll be happy to know that the shrimps in this dish are sourced using the Monterey Bay Aquarium sustainable fish practice. You can learn more about this practice and other tips on making better seafood choices over at Seafood Watch.org.

Want to add a delicious glass of wine to your meal? We are pairing this already mouthwatering entrée with a glass of Angeline California Pinot Noir. This wine has a wealth of aromas such as fresh cranberries, maraschino cherries, and orange zest. The palate is round and juicy with a lively acidity. A touch of sweet, smoky oak is felt on the finish. Pay $31.99 to enjoy the Surf and Turf alongside a glass of this interesting and high-quality Pinot Noir.

Taste the Winning Cocktail from the Battle of the Bartenders Competition

BBC Group

On April 26th, we had our ‘Battle of the Bartenders’ competition. During this event, bartenders from both Copper Canyon Grill and Stanford Grill locations created unique cocktails using Old Forrester Bourbon.

BBC Old Forrester Bourbon

Old Forrester Bourbon was created in 1870, and it is the only bourbon continually distilled and marketed by the founding family before, during, and after Prohibition. It has a sharp and sweet nose with a strong floral character that swirls with hints of mint, rich tobacco, vanilla, plus a touch of oak and pine. The taste is sharp at first but quickly softens to reveal hints of oak, sweet corn, and rye. You can also taste spicy notes with soft vanilla and orange.

BBC Winners

The winner of the night was Copper Canyon Grill Orlando! Bartender Andrea Cannon created the winning Strawberry Julep cocktail. It was Rocky Rojas who came to the competition to represent the Orlando unit. Coming right behind Orlando, in second place, is Copper Canyon Grill Silver Spring with their Cold Brewed Tini. This caffeinated concoction was imagined by Bartender Vanessa Nolan. Stop by the location nearest you to taste these winning cocktails!

BBC Strawberry Julep

Breakthru beverage sponsored the event and the plaque was donated by Old Forrester Bourbon. We’d like to thank our staff for participating in the competition and to everyone who submitted a recipe. Special thanks to Allyson Belknap and Patrick Monnig for coordinating the event and making it a success.
