THE 2017 WINNER HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED

La Sobremesa

Recipe by Alexandria Jump

The creativity with ingredients, the mastery of balance and flavors, the group of four vying for the title of Lustau Solera Stand Out 2017 felt the excitement of putting their skills to the test in a magnificent show-down at the Castillo de San Marcos. And after much deliberation, the panel of industry figures came to their finalizing conclusion. All the way from Colorado, this year’s winner is … Alex Jump with her cocktail, La Sobremesa! Lustau’s master of the cocktail.

Our congratulations extend to Helen Diaz, Jeff Seymour, and Vinny Starble—the best in the U.S. And finally, thank you to all of the bartenders that entered, see you again next year for a fabulous Stand Out Cocktail Competition.
