Public Hotel's Pump Room serves up a cocktail contest
If you’ve dreamed for your day in the spotlight as a mixologist (read: bougie bartender), your day is near. Through August 6 at Public Hotel, put your best drink recipe forward for the chance to win $1,000 and to a featured spot on the Pump Room’s Seasonal Specialty Cocktail Menu. Each recipe must contain at least one spirit over 40 percent alcohol-by-volume, but spruce it up with fruits, garnishes and presentation. After the public picks the top three drinks, a panel of judges will choose the winner. So check out the rules, submit your entry and step up to the bar.
