It's World Cocktail Week! Drink up with Jared Boller

World Cocktail Week ends today. So let's raise a glass to Jared Boller, the award-winning mixologist who represented Denver in a recent article in USA Today that profiled a handful of alcohol alchemists around the country.

Boller will be behind the bar at TAG, Troy Guard's restaurant that opens in Larimer Square on May 18, where "we're going to put spin on classic drinks," he told USA Today.

In the piece, he poured it on for the 42 Yuzu, "the drink that got me to compete in the 42Below Cocktail World Cup in New Zealand." It's made with 42Below kiwi vodka, strawberry puree, house-made sour, splash IZZE sparkling pear juice and mint, then topped with Yuzu kiwi foam and garnished with kiwi olives stuffed with strawberry pimentos.

Jason Sheehan caught up with Boller last fall, when he survived the Nine75 ownership switch. You can read all about that here.
