At Queerty, we love bartenders: They are our personal mixologists, advisers, shoulders to cry on, and, as the night wears on, objects of desire. So we’re teaming up with our friends at Stoli to bring you this year’s Stoli Key West Cocktail Classic.
Basically, it works like this: Bartenders in 15 cities compete at awesome local bars to be the nominee of their city. The winners get a complementary trip to Key West in June for the finale, where they face off against the best of the best. The winning bartender gets a trip to Ibiza along with other prizes.
Next up: Miami! Here are some of the city’s finest.
Not in Miami? Here’s the whole schedule for a city near you.
