And we have a winner!

It was a close competition, but the winner of our #WorldBartenderDay Battle of the Bartenders is Summer from Copper Canyon Grill Silver Spring! Summer mixed up a refreshing and beautiful tequila cocktail called the Ancho Average Anejo to wow the crowd & take home the prize. Didn’t make it to the battle? Summer’s winning cocktail will be featured at all locations for the month of March, so come on by!
