Cocktail Jockey Contest Back at Deighton Cup This Weekend; Happy Hour Hits Belgard Kitchen

HASTINGS SUNRISE— This weekend at the Deighton Cup, bartenders will be competing for a $1000 prize at the 2nd Annual Cocktail Jockey Mixology Competition presented by Bulleit Bourbon. Last year's winner, the Clough Club's Sean McGuigan, scored with the Gutierrez Cocktail, a contemporary twist on a classic mint julep. This year the contest will see bartenders vie against each other to create "the ultimate modern expression of an Old Fashioned" in the custom-constructed Jockey Lounge on the roof of the Hastings Racetrack. The winning recipe will be featured on bottleneck tags of Bulleit Bourbon in all BC liquor stores. Tickets are still available from $75 upwards for the event at the Hastings Racetrack on Saturday from 12-6p.m. [EW]
