Competitors familiarize themselves with the bar setup before the competition.

One of the most anticipated Arizona Cocktail Week events took over The Yard at Farmer Arts District in Tempe on Monday, February 15. Guests of Last Slinger Standing eagerly watched as 16 bartenders from across five states competed in an Iron Chef-style cocktail competition, complete with shakers flying, secret ingredients, and even PolyScience Smoking Guns. 

While Arizona did their best, it was New Mexico bartender Andrew David Roy who claimed the night's top prize. Read the whole recap of the event.
