And the winner is…

Rocky Collins (right, with Jai Rodriguez).

After a three-month competition spanning 15 cities with dozens of bartender vying for top honors, the tatted stud took the Stoli Key West Classic bragging rights home to Dallas and his bar, Round Up Saloon.

Stoli and the Key West Business Guild will present $5,000 to Rocky’s hometown charity DIFFA Dallas in late July at a victory celebration at Round Up. A matching 5K charity prize was presented to Key West’s Wesley House at Key West Pride.

In the wake of Orlando shootings, Key West Pride was as defiant as it was celebratory. Rocky led the Pride Parade down main street in an inconspicuous Red Mustang convertible along with Stoli’s brand ambassador, Patrik Gallineaux.

But it was not an easy road to the top of queer bartending. Rocky survived three rounds of competition leading up to the Finale June 10 outside Bourbon Street Pub in Key West. Known for his on-stage catchphrase, “Five, Six, Seven, Eight,” Rocky won over the judges with his exuberant personality and his specialty cocktail, the Key West Kitty Kat featuring Stoli Vanil.

Check out the pics from the fabulous days known as the Key West Cocktail Classic…
