The ultimate victor: Ken Kody of Bacaro in Boulder, whose winning drink was named Amnesia, appropriately enough.
Here's how to make it: In a mixing cup, blend 2 parts DeKuyper Ragin' Root Beer Schnapps plus 1 part DeKuyper Hot Damn plus 1 part Irish Cream. Serve in a shot glass.
My personal favorite?
The Curious George, concocted by Nick Kropp, a bartender at Happy Noodle House. It was made with Basil Hayden -- the alcohol equivalent of bacon, in my opinion. It makes everything better.Here's how to make it: In a mixing cup, blend 1.5 oz (Basil Hayden's) Bourbon plus 1.5 oz DeKuyper's Crème de Banana plus 0.25 oz fresh lemon juice (with a squeeze of egg white). Shake with ice, strain into cocktail glass with banana as garnish.
