Washingtonian and Belvedere Vodka celebrated seasonal-inspired sips at Bartender Battle! The event, held at The Gryphon, was a culminating competition after 3 mini battles that began in Summer 2017. Talented DC mixologists, Andy Bixby of Jack Rose Dining Saloon, Andrea Tateosian of Urbana, and Walter Raubeson of Le Diplomate, were given 4 mystery ingredients before they each created their custom Belvedere Vodka cocktail. Three judges ultimately voted for Andrea Tateosian from Urbana’s creation astheir favorite. Guests were encouraged to create a custom cocktail of their own at the Spritz Bar, where Q Drinks provided mixers and April’s Table offered an assortment of garnishes. While sipping unlimited Belvedere Vodka cocktails, guests enjoyed light bites from The Gryphon and in the Belvedere Vodka lounge mini Sprinkles cupcakes were offered. Guests could take photos and make GIFs at the A-List Photo Booths station, floral arrangements were provided by Urban Stems, and entertainment was by Mixing Maryland.
