Denver Espolon Cocktail Fights

Melissa Durant of Acorn beat out seven other local bartenders to take the champion's belt at last night's Espolon Cocktail Fights. The competition pitted mixologists against each other in several challenges, including mixing a cocktail with ingredients brought by another bartender, and creating a drink using a saison from Crooked Stave.
