Eagle Valley Land Trust’s first Garden to Glass winner: ‘Save the Bee’s Knees’ (recipe)
September 1, 2017
EDWARDS — Ryan Souto and Scott Robinson, of The Rose in Edwards, are the winners of the first-ever mixologist competition — Garden to Glass — at the Eagle Valley Land Trust's fundraiser on Aug. 17.
Souto and Robinson, with support from the bar's owners Bryan and Jessica Redniss, took the win this year with their cocktail creation named "Save the Bee's Knees."
Local mixologists from The Rose as well as Root & Flower, Terra Bistro, 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Company, Boxcar and Vail Catering Concepts faced off in the Garden to Glass cocktail reception using a secret ingredient that was announced just days before the event — Colorado lavender.
The winner was selected by Garden to Glass attendees, who sampled each cocktail during the reception and cast their vote.
