How about this from the United States Bartenders’ Guild. Congrats to Luke Edson from the Berry and Rye.

On August 6th, the United States Bartenders’ Guild (USBG) invited a selection of Omaha’s most promising bartending talent to compete in the regional finals of the “Most Imaginative Bartender” competition, sponsored by BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® gin. The competition was a series of challenging timed sessions, surprise twists and blind tastings by a panel of esteemed judges including Nick Kosovich, Erin Vik and Devin Coyle.

From the Berry and Rye, Luke Edson’s innovative Victoria’s Rhuby, made with Bombay Sapphire and House Rhubard red wine syrup, was recognized as the most original mixology masterpiece in Omaha. Luke’s winning creation will now advance him to the USBG Bartender Summit in Las Vegas to be held on September 8, 2013, where he will share the stage with 51 of the country’s top mixologists for a chance at the title of “USBG Nation’s Most Imaginative Bartender.” If he takes the title in Las Vegas, Luke will then secure himself a coveted spot in the 3rd annual global finals.
