Facepainting & foam fingers are not you. A belt made of NFL football leather is. Understated fanaticism FTW!

MB Cocktail Contest: Phil Gomes vs. David McCabe

Phil Gomes

Ingredients:
2.5 oz white premium cachaça
1 tangerine, peeled and sectioned
1/2 oz agave nectar
3 oz club soda

Instructions:
Muddle tangerine sections with peels. Add cachaça and agave nectar. Shake with ice. Strain. Add soda and stir.

David McCabe

Ingredients:
1.5 Oz Dry Gin
0.75 Oz St Germain Eldeflower Liqueur
0.50 Oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
Lemon Twist for Garnish

Instructions:
This is a very simple cocktail, which gives it great mass appeal. Combine the gin, the St. Germain, and the lemon juice in a shaker. Fill with ice and shake. Now shake some more. And a bit more. When it's too cold to shake, just give it one or two more good shakes. Serve it up in a martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

Winner: David McCabe
Score: 5-0
Game Summary: We're pretty sure cachaça has its place among the base liquors. Just not when used in this way. David McCabe's cocktail had a nice combination of the eldeflower and the lemon. It was harmonious and balanced and won unanimously.
