The 2018 Garnish Games
The 2018 Garnish Games took place Monday, March 12, 2018 at Poka Lola Social Club located inside of Dairy block. The public had an opportunity to taste test, then vote, on the best concoction. TJ Vong, of Mizu Izakaya was my absolute favorite. His cocktail was refreshing and the presentation was super innovative.
"DiningOut Magazine and Diageo Reserve Brands have selected a group of the finest bartenders in the city to compete against each other to see who can create the most visually stunning cocktail garnish. They did not disappoint!" - DiningOut Magazine
