Bronze Winner The Bitter End
“There are plenty of attributes to being a bartender that don’t necessarily have to align with making great cocktails,” says Lot Six bartender (and your Best Bartender) Shane Beehan. “But when you balance them both, I think you get a really beautiful thing.” High-quality cocktails, he explains, come down to a few different things. Making sure your bar is organized is important, so you can sling those bevs at a fast pace. Clean tools and fresh juices ensure that everything will taste the way it should. On top of that, Lot Six’s cocktails bring something different to your tastebuds. Peach iced tea, cold brew coffee and passion fruit are a few ingredients you’ll find on the menu.
