Valley Mixologists Compete For Greatest Hangar One Cocktail in U.S.A.


Richie Moe from Citizen Public House, chef Josh Hebert of Posh, Julie Hillebrand Tomey from J&G Steakhouse -- they're just three of twelve Valley mixologists battling each other and competitors across America for the title of greatest Hangar One cocktail and an all-expense paid trip to the Hangar One Vodka Distillery in Alameda, California.

The twelve finalists (who also include Kris Korf from The Parlor, Sean Traynor from Windsor, Micah Olson from Merc Bar, and Travis Nass from Rancho Pinot) each have a video on the Hangar One Facebook page with the winners being determined by the most number of "likes" their video receives over a 60 day duration. Regional winners will be announced in February 2012, with the grand prize winner being announced later in the spring.
