Eight Boulder eateries sent their bartenders/mixologists (whatever you want to call them) to compete in last night's second annual Boulder's Best Mixologist competition at the BMoCA. Adrian Sutevski of SALT beat out drink aficionados from Aji, Hapa Sushi, The Kitchen, OAK at Fourteenth, The Pinyon, Riff's Urban Fare and West End Tavern. With what cocktail, you ask? There was no hand-chipped ice, fire, hop glycerin or agar agar involved. Sutevski made the Sunfire, a drink crafted with blood orange and rosemary infused vodka, fresh lime, agave nectar and soda. Sutevski will hold bragging rights until next year's cocktail throwdown.
