Dry with an unexpected splash of everything else! That's what Lori Gray thinks Colorado tastes like, and that entry in our Cocktail Cocktail contest just won her two tickets to the two-day Colorado Cocktail Project, which will be pouring out wisdom -- and drinks -- at the Museum of Contemporary Art June 26-27.
But we also loved Mantonat's entry, and so are serving up another pair in honor of this description:
Equal parts High Plains Drifter and The Shining.
You can buy your own tickets to the Colorado Cocktail Contest at select Whole Food outlets; find more information on the Colorado Cocktail Project here.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
