Star of the Bar National Mixology Competition

Star of the Bar is a nationwide search for the best bartender in the US that the National Restaurant Association hosts in partnership with the United States Bartenders' Guild. Producing this competition gave me the opportunity to meet talented mixologists and check out the regional cocktail trends in places like Boston, Chicago, Miami, Austin and San Francisco.
