Four of the area’s craftiest cocktail connoisseurs came together to compete in the 1st Annual Bourbon Battle at The Trestle Inn on Wednesday evening. For $20, guests received a passport and ballot to vote for their favorite of the four bourbon-based libations.

Concoctions ranged in style from the classic Spumoni made by Llloyd Whiskey Bar’s Scott Coudriet using Old Forester, cherry heering, house-made pistachio orgeat, egg white and absinthe to the Wake N’ Bake – a “hungover breakfast-inspired concoction” of Old Forester, egg white, fresh citrus, bacon and maple syrup cooked up by Time Restaurant’s Tim Heuisler. The Trestle’s own Jake Goldberg brought NOLA to Phila with his boozy Tears of The Bayou beverage, which is a sticky sensation made using Old Forester, lazzaroni amaretto, fernet branca, black walnut bitters, absinthe and bourbon soaked cherries.

All bragging rights go to Johnny Sherlock of The Industry Bar for his Drunken Monk combination of Old Forester, yellow chartreuse, fresh lemon, aperol and an orange twist. Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) also scored one for the win since the event raised $1,135 to benefit their organization.

"The event was a tremendous success with both dogs receiving applications for adoption and $115 raised at our table in addition to the money raised through ticket sales," said Allison Lamond, Community Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator.
