The Dairy Arts Center is holding the fourth annual Moovers and Shakers Cocktail Competition starting at 5:30 p.m. today. Some of Boulder's best mixologists — from such restaurants as Basta, Blackbelly, Frasca, Mateo, Oak at Fourteenth and Riffs — will be competing to make the best original cocktail featuring Colorado-based Leopold's American Small Batch Gin.
Guests at the event will receive a souvenir glass, cocktail samples and small paired bites, and can vote for their favorite cocktail. The winner of the cocktail competition will receive cash and bragging rights for the year. Previous winners include Frasca, Oak at Fourteenth, SALT and Mateo. Tickets are $60 in advance and $65 at the door; purchase yours and learn more here. Proceeds benefit the Dairy Arts Center.
