The Bartender's Dozen
Kicking off Devour Week, twelve of Arizona's best bartenders will rise to compete for the title of Arizona's Star Bartender on February 26th at Desoto Central Market. The starting lineup will go head to head, bringing their best drinks to the bar. Get to know them here and then taste their signature styles day of, where the theme of the day will be taking pride in Arizona’s spirit. In addition to native and heritage ingredients, you’ll find locally-distilled spirits like OHSO Distillery as well as nationally-recognized groups including The United States Bartender’s Guild and local media such as the teams behind Bite Magazine and WriteonRubee.com. Modern music man and local photographer DJ Mr PHX will be mixing it up from a bird’s eye view, and Principle Barman and Proprietor of Bitter and Twisted Cocktail Parlor and two parts Scottish gent, Ross Simon, will be calling the event in Queens English.
