The Periwinkle Foundation has selected the finalists for its Iron Bartender competition: Jose Santiago, BCN Taste & Tradition; Garrett Jones, Johnny’s Gold Brick; Kristine Nguyen, Nancy’s Hustle; and Carlos “Chino” Serrano, Xochi.
The four talented mixologists will compete for the throne, with each creating thoughtful cocktails to pair with a decedent multi-course tasting menu prepared by James Beard-winning Chef Hugo Ortega. Guests with VIP tickets will have the opportunity to enjoy the handcrafted tasting menu and cast their vote for their favorite bartender to be crowned champion at the end of the evening.
Tickets for general admission are available for $75 and will include access to five cocktail bars, food stations, passed bites, and a Bourbon and BBQ tent featuring five of Houston’s best pitmasters. VIP tickets are $150.
