runner-up bartender cocktail by spirits hunters

Bartender Cocktail: meet the 5 talented runner-ups

It’s time to share with you the talented runner-ups of our Bartender Cocktail.

Next Edition: March 1st 2023

Bartenders have been sending us photos of their cocktail creations, their portraits, and photos of their bar so that we can share them with our community and with anyone who is interested in amazing cocktails.

During the Christmas season, we asked our followers and Instagram users to tell us which ones they preferred.

Lauren Walhstrom from Texas and bartender at The Branca Room came in first place with her cocktail Rosae Crucis, and now here are the five that followed.

Just a way to value the work of our bartender community.

They are the best 👍


You met the winner of our Bartender Cocktail, Lauren Wahlstrom, now it’s time to introduce to you the runner-ups of our Bartender Cocktail!
