-- 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.
