“Stirred Not Shaken” the ultimate cocktail competition in downtown Seattle at the Hard Rock Cafe presented by Seattle Met
On April 24, 2013 nearly 400 people met at the Hard Rock Cafe Seattle to celebrate Stirred Not Shaken, a Bourbon cocktail competition presented by Basil Hayden. Partygoers sipped on Basil Hayden’s cocktails from some of the city’s most innovative bartenders as they enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, lip print readings, and lively entertainment, including a burlesque performance and an exhibition by Duo Rendez-vous. The Spring Basil Julep, a refreshing cocktail crafted by Kevin Phillips, Michael Cadden, and the rest of the team at The Tin Table, won both the judge’s and people’s choice awards.
