Sarasota Food Blog - SRQ Chew - Sarasota-Manatee Originals' Set the Bar

Last month the Sarasota-Manatee Originals and Aloft Sarasota Hotel premiered Set the Bar cocktail competition. Cocktail lovers celebrated National Vodka Day while tasting handcrafted cocktails 
made  with Tito's Homemade Vodka and other yummy natural ingredients.  

Everyone at the event voted for their favorite in the Peoples' Choice Award. First place went to The Waterfront Restaurant of Anna Maria with their charcoal infused libation. Second place went to Siesta Key Oyster Bar for their all natural honey, lemon, mint and tea cocktail. There was also a blind  judging and first place went to The Waterfront again. State Street Eating House + Cocktails came in second for their creation.

Set the Bar was a fantastic night and all the proceeds of the evening went to Tour de Cure which is even more fantastic. Glad to be a part of it all. This is just one more reason that makes Sarasota a great place to live.

Thanks to all who participated. Check out their links below and enjoy eating and drinking local.
